When temps start dropping and scarves, gloves and earmuffs start coming out, there鈥檚 nothing cozier than having a steaming hot drink in your hands. Recently, Starbucks made some headlines when their iconic red cups made their return. Those cups are sure a sign as any that holiday season is finally here, and in conjunction of the season, the coffee makers are also releasing some of their limited holiday beverages (hooray!). The chestnut praline latte, caramel brul茅e latte and the eggnog latte are back. But there鈥檚 a newcomer on the list: the brand new Holiday Spice Flat White.


If you recall, the flat white made quite a splash (pun intended) earlier this year when it landed in the US from Australia. The flat white it unique in that it鈥檚 two ristretto shots (think espresso but more sweet and condensed) that鈥檚 then diluted with a pour of steamed whole milk and complete with a white latte dot on top. So what exactly sets the holiday version apart from the original? Let us tell you.


According to USA Today, the ristretto shots will be made with Starbucks鈥 custom Christmas blend espresso and 鈥渁 blend of mulling spices.鈥 Mulling spices traditionally contain cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and some kind of fruity element. Starbucks鈥 version will have all the above, plus ground sugar, ginger and a 鈥渉int of tangerine sugar.鈥 Sounds mouth-watering.

We鈥檒l take a venti to go.
