Let's be honest, December combines both finals season and the holidays into one giant mess. Not only are you stressed beyond belief but you're also trying to keep in touch with family and friends, too. Needless to say, these 5 Starbucks drinks will definitely help you destress and will lift up your spirits this holiday season. 


5. Eggnog Latte 

Eggnog is definitely a wintertime and holiday staple. Add in a shot of espresso and some warm steamed milk and your eyes will glow as bright as the lights wrapped around your Christmas tree. You can never go wrong with a little eggnog to kick you into the holiday mindset. 

4. Caramel Cloud Macchiato 

While this is a drink that can be enjoyed year-round, the taste of caramel is sure to bring a smile to your face as you trek through the miserable blizzards that come along during the winter season. The caramel is balanced out with the froffy layer of cream at the top, and it has me envisioning the joy that comes with the first snow of the winter season. 

3. Peppermint White Hot Chocolate 

Oh. My. God. The king of hot chocolate is finally back on the menu! This drink is perfect for snuggling up next to the fireplace and listening to your favorite Christmas music playlist. It just screams "Happy Holidays!" and I am here for it.  

2. Chai Tea Latte

The mother of all teas has arrived on this list. Seriously, this tea is too good. It has a good combonation of spices and fits the winter theme perfectly. I typically think of warm fuzzy socks and oversized mugs when I think of chai tea. 

1. London Fog Tea Latte

And of course, we have our spicy vanilla winner. This wins over the chai tea only by a small margin. This is my go-to tea at Starbucks, and it has such a calm and inviting taste that it's hard to resist not ordering it. It makes me want to drive to the city and stare at all the brightly shining buildings and trees, even if it's snowing. It makes me feel all bright inside, so I think it fits perfectly as the #1 Starbucks drink for this holiday season. 


Do you agree with my list? Are there other drinks that deserve to be included? If so, which ones?
