The Peppermint Mocha Is Back At Starbucks!

by Michelle Regalado

Fall is slowly ebbing into winter, which means it's just about time to swap your Pumpkin Spice Latte for a delicious Peppermint Mocha, but, uh, just when is the Starbucks Peppermint Mocha available, exactly? Luckily, you don't have to wait long to get your hands on one. Starbucks is bringing back its beloved holiday beverages on Nov. 1 — a.k.a. right now. Starting today, you can run out and get your favorite seasonal coffee drink, served in the company's signature red holiday cups.

To ring in the holiday season, Starbucks is bringing back all of its classic wintery flavors, including the fan-favorite Peppermint Mocha. For those who need a reminder (after all, it's been a while since you've gotten to taste the delicious drink), the Peppermint Mocha combines espresso, steamed milk, whipped cream, chocolate, and of course, peppermint for one delicious and super festive beverage.

Also making their long-awaited return to the Starbucks menu? The Caramel Brulée Latte, the Gingerbread Latte, the Eggnog Latte, and the Chestnut Praline Latte, the latter of which made its highly yummy debut last year. And just in case those aren't enough holiday flavors for you, the coffee conglomerate is also bringing a new drink to the party this year: a Holiday Spice Flat White that will become available at some point later this season.

Red cups and Peppermint Mochas? It's official, folks: holiday season is here, and it's time to get to celebrating. While you're at it, try using the Twitter hashtag #RedCup or #RedCups: it makes the image of a little red Starbucks cup appear, which is perfect for all your holiday drink tweeting.
