Pumpkin spice lattes are great and all, but with red cup season finally here, one Starbucks drink rises to rule them all: the peppermint mocha. While the peppermint mocha is available year-round, there's just something about drinking it in a red cup that makes it seem special. Not that you need a red cup, of course. In fact, I’d argue that there’s one thing that makes this seasonal beverage even better — drinking it from your own mug at home.

Whether you’re looking to whip up the full peppermint mocha experience yourself, or you just want a minty creamer to give your coffee a festive kick, these 10 recipes have got you covered. Forget pumpkin. The peppermint mocha is guaranteed to be a hit every time.
