While much has been said about the return of the Starbucks red cups and holiday flavors, but the Starbucks Reserve holiday beverages, available at Starbucks Reserve locations, offers an elevated flavor to the most festive season. From a new holiday blend to a returning favorite beverage, the season is starting to sparkle and shine.
At the Starbucks Reserve locations, coffee aficionados appreciated the attention to craft. From the special roast to the creativity in the cup, these locations bring another level of appreciation for that cup of coffee.
For the holiday season, the holiday offerings welcome guests into a festival of flavors. While there doesn’t necessarily have to be a winter wonderland outside the window, the festival of flavors is a reason to embrace the merriment.
The Starbucks Reserve Christmas 2021 combines bright citrus notes with a touch of sweetness and a little woodsy quality. The Costa Rican Hacienda Alsacia beans are blended with Sumatran beans. Add to that the “candied ginger, orange marmalade, cedar and butterscotch sweetness,” the coffee is that welcoming, comforting sip that is perfect from the start of the day to the evening on the couch.
Returning again this holiday season on the Starbucks Reserve holiday beverages menu, the Pistachio Latte brings an earthy, nutty flavor with a touch of sweetness. With the salty-sweet pistachio topping, the latte could make anyone forget about those sugar cookies.
Since the Reserve locations are known for the creative coffee cocktails, the holiday season is a perfect time to raise another toast. The Maharaju Chai Nog might be the must have holiday cocktail. The combination of Teavana Maharaja Chai tea with Aperol, Banks 5 Island Rum and almond milk is a cocktail that many mixologists will want to mimic.
In addition, the Pistachio Butter Rum could be the perfect dessert cocktail. Combining sweet and a touch spicy from the ginger liqueur, it hits all the holiday flavors.
The holiday season is here, and it is time to celebrate. Raise a glass in gratitude, grace and good will towards everyone and a wish to a fruitful 2022.
