Ahhhh the holiday season is upon us ladies and gents.
Cue the holiday tunes, twinkly lights, puffer coats, colder weather, and of course your cozy Hangover Hoodie.
Yet we all know it to be true that nothing truly marks the beginning of winter quite like the holiday drinks at Starbucks. Are you a peppermint fan? White toasted mocha (a personal fav)? Eggnog?
Whether you know it or not your preference in your festive drink actually says a lot about you and thankfully Rikita Jain from The Daily Targum has you covered and dives deep into the what your drink order says about your inner psyche. Enjoy and happy drinking!
The Peppermint Mocha is a long-time classic. Made with espresso, steamed milk, mocha sauce, peppermint-flavored syrup and topped with whipped cream, you really can't go wrong with this holiday staple.
If you typically order the Peppermint Mocha, you’re basic and not ashamed of it. You’re definitely either a communications or psychology major and love either frolicking in the snow or lounging inside near a crackling fire in your free time.
Toasted White Chocolate Mocha
The Toasted White Chocolate Mocha consists of espresso, steamed milk and caramelized white chocolate syrup. Topped with a mound of whipped cream and dusted with cranberry sugar flakes, this drink is the ultimate holiday beverage.
If you’re a fan of this one, you’re part of the unpopular pool that indulges in white chocolate. You also consider Christmas a personality trait and are the first to hang up your stockings as soon as the clock strikes midnight on Nov. 1.
Caramel Brulée Latte
Combining espresso, steamed milk, a delectable caramel brulée sauce and topped with whipped cream and even more caramel brulée, this latte is as good as it sounds.
If you order this, you typically have super long and specific orders for your drinks (like me) but have exquisite taste. You’re also either going into nursing or medicine and are always donning a cardigan, regardless of the season.
Chestnut Praline Latte
Along with freshly steamed milk and espresso, this nutty drink contains notes of caramelized chestnuts and spices, and is topped with whipped cream and small praline crumbs.
Fun fact: If you're trying to save on calories, this rich beverage is actually "healthier" than the holiday staples Pumpkin Spice Latte and Caramel Brulée Latte.
If this latte is your go-to, you’re likely either a Sagittarius or have an affinity for traveling and testing out new things. You’re the wild one among your friends and are probably dreaming of living your best life in France.
Crafted with rich, steamed eggnog, espresso, brown sugar and nutmeg, the Eggnog Latte is a timeless favorite.
If the Eggnog Latte is your holiday order, you're an old soul and are probably in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences at Rutgers. You’re an animal lover and are the type of person who would enjoy doing anything as long as you’re in the company of people you love.
Whether you totally relate to what your drink says about you or not at all, one thing is for sure: You can head over to your local Starbucks and make your day better with any one of these flavorful drinks.
Starbucks’ signature holiday cups and gifts are also in stock. After the year we’ve had, ‘tis the season to treat yourself!
