You know it’s Christmas when Costa and Starbucks release their special seasonal cups and exciting new winter menu. This year’s selection of drinks looks to be the most delicious yet and they’re available in stores now! Check out what’s on the menu below…
Although there’s no Orange Hot Chocolate or Amaretti Latte this year, Costa have made up for the loss with a host of tasty new treats. Topping the list is the Billionaire’s Hot Chocolate, a drink voted for by Costa Coffee Club members! It features layers of caramel sauce, freshly whipped cream and shortbread crumbs – yum! In fact, Costa loved this idea so much they created the Billionaire’s Latte too, which combines Belgian chocolate sauce and caramel sauce with Costa’s signature Mocha Italia Blend.

Another drink which is sure to become a firm festive favourite is Costa’s Frostinos. Served for the first time ever during the Christmas season, this cold drink will cool you down after a mad day of shopping. You can choose between the Billionaire’s Latte Frostino or the Black Forest Frostino, both offering a creamy cup of pure deliciousness.
Of course, as well as new drinks Costa have brought back some classics. Returning for this Christmas is the Gingerbread and Cream Latte, Honeycomb Latte, Mint Hot Chocolate, Lindt Hot Chocolate and Hot Spiced Apple.
The biggest new addition to Starbucks Christmas menu is the Festive Cold Brew. Bringing some festive spirit to Starbucks classic cold brew blend, this drink sees a touch of syrup added to the slow-steeped cold brew coffee, before being finished with orange and cranberry pieces for a hint of spice.
The Eggnog Latte is back! A twist on the classic drink, this latte combines 100% Arabica espresso with creamy, steamed eggnog and is served with a dusting of ground nutmeg. Whether you love it or hate it, you can’t deny eggnog is one of the ultimate Christmas drinks! Another favourite returning is Starbucks Fudge Hot Chocolate. A cup of pure chocolate indulgence, this hot chocolate blends milk chocolate, fudge syrup and steamed milk before being topped with fudge flavoured whipped cream and a sprinkling of gold chocolate curls – drinks don’t get more luxurious than this.
Other favourites back for another year are the Gingerbread Latte and the Toffee Nut Latte.
