What Holiday Drink Are You?



Deciding what drink  to order can be difficult, but vibing with a mood board is easy.

It’s the holiday season and you’re in line at your favorite Starbucks. You’re almost up to order, but what? Your eyes scan up and down the lengthy menu, trying to get a sense of what you’re in the mood for, but you just don’t know. These mood boards will give you a sense of what you’re really craving.


Peppermint Mocha

Do you decorate for Christmas before Halloween is over? Are you just itching (in your ugly Christmas sweater) to wrap presents and sing carols? If so, then the peppermint mocha is for you. It is perfect for the chilly holiday evenings, and gives you that dose of caffeine to stay wide eyed through your favorite slew of holly jolly movies. When all you want to do is stay at home cuddled up next to the fire, be sure to have the peppermint mocha in hand. The perfect blend of coffee, chocolate, and mint all in one festive Starbucks holiday cup. The peppermint provides the perfect amount of refresh during the chilly winter months. 


Caramel Brulee Latte 

Maybe you’re like me, and this morning you woke up feeling, for lack of a better word, bleh. Not bad, not good either, just bleh. But this isn’t how you are, it’s just how you feel today. Perhaps it’s a Monday, or maybe you just checked your banking balance. The ordering line at Starbucks is the perfect opportunity for you to liven up your day to match the real you. One way to take your morning from mundane and plain to sweet and indulgence worthy is to order the decadent Caramel Brulee Latte. This dreamy holiday cup of rich delight is just what you need. Just because you woke up on the dreary side of the bed doesn’t mean you have to live the rest of your day that way. That’s not you. Go be you. Enrich your morning with the creamy caramel you deserve.

And don’t forget that little green coffee stopper. You’ve got places to be.

Taking advantage of that buy one get one to treat a friend, but you’re not sure what they want either? This mocha is sure to be liked by all.

Caramel Apple Spice

Not a coffee person, no worries, Starbucks offers plenty of non-coffee drinks as well. The Caramel Apple Spice is the perfect holiday option with all the warm coziness those holiday cups have to offer, but without the caffeine. Maybe you’re an enneagram four, or simply  prefer your espresso elsewhere. You pride yourself in being different, and your friends have called you over sentimental, and today you are feeling particularly nostalgic about who knows what. Drinking the Caramel Apple Spice is like sipping the Holiday Season, and all the memories attached. Do you find yourself wandering into candle stores, or always stopping to smell the roses? Then the sheer fragrance of the Caramel Apple Spice is enough to make your heart skip a few beats.
