The Seasonal Baked Sweets

A First-Ever Addition to the Starbucks Holiday Menu
After the popularity of the shaken oat milk lattes earlier this year, Starbucks has introduced a new Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte.
The brand says this is its first-ever non-dairy coffee holiday drink, which is made with Starbucks Blonde Espresso, almond milk, and sugar cookie-flavored syrup. (Bonus if you're more into toasty drinks this time of year: You can also order this one hot.)
Plus a Favorite, Served Up Sooner
The new Starbucks holiday menu also brought back the Irish Cream Cold Brew, which in recent years hasn't hit the menu until early December.
And the Full 2021 Holiday Drinks Menu
If you've been a fan of Starbucks' seasonal flavors in the past, here are the ones you can look forward to once again: Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. 'Tis the season!
