There’s no time better time for a cup of your favorite flavored coffee than the holiday season. It’s snowy and cold, you’re busy decorating and buying gifts, and you could probably use a break with a warm, toasty beverage. So carving out some time to sit with a seasonally-flavored coffee is pretty much a must.
Fortunately, Starbucks will not only have their usual festive drinks to help you stay awake while celebrating the season, but they’ll also have four new holiday cup designs to keep things merry. Now through the holidays, you’ll find new cups decorated in wrapping paper, ribbon, holiday lights and candy canes.
To celebrate the new cups and the holiday season, Starbucks will also be giving away free limited-edition reusable red cups. This year’s reusable cup honors Starbucks’ 50th anniversary and is made with 50% recycled content and features the Starbucks logo and dancing ribbons.
You’ll have to act fast to get the cup, though, as Starbucks is giving them away for one day only. Everyone who orders a holiday or fall beverage at participating Starbucks stores on Nov. 18, 2021, will receive a reusable cup, while supplies last. The giveaway is available no matter how you order, whether it’s a mobile order, curbside pickup or through delivery on Uber Eats.
Holiday drinks to choose from this year include fan-favorite seasonal beverages like the Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha and Irish Cream Cold Brew.
New this year, you’ll also find the Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte, the first non-dairy holiday drink for the coffee chain. Featuring sugar cookie-flavored syrup, the drink combines espresso, ice and almond milk, and is finished off with a dash of festive cookie sprinkles.
If you aren’t able to get one of the reusable cups on Nov. 18, Starbucks’ reusable color-changing holiday cups are back for purchase.
The Color Changing Hot Cup Set comes in a 6-pack or you can get a Cold Cup with Color Changing Stripe Straw. The six-pack costs $18.95 ($3.16 each), while the cold cup costs $3.95. While the cups in the six-pack change color once hot liquid is added, only the straw changes on the cold cup.
Will you be heading to Starbucks on Nov. 18 to get a free reusable cup?
