VoiceAngel’s Hilarious Ranking of Starbucks Holiday Drinks
Indulge in the Festive Season with Starbucks Holiday Drinks Our Ultimate Ranking from Least to Supreme
Starbucks Holiday Drinks Ranked from Worst to Best
Ah, the glorious day when Starbucks unleashes its holiday drinks upon the world – it might as well be a national holiday! Here at VoiceAngel, we are absolutely giddy with excitement, discussing everything from the new additions to the iconic cup designs and even the mysterious secret menu creations. We are true connoisseurs of Starbucks’ holiday drinks, and we take our rankings very seriously. So, buckle up, fashion lovers, because we are about to present you with VoiceAngel’s official and hysterically hilarious ranking of every single holiday drink at Starbucks!
Before we dive headfirst into this delicious adventure, let us share some wisdom we’ve gained over the years. We’ve made a few modifications to our ranking process, prioritizing comfort and convenience over frozen fingers and frostbitten taste buds. Instead of braving the chilly streets with a dozen drinks in hand, we had them conveniently delivered to us (thank you, modern technology!). And just to keep things authentic, we ordered each drink exactly as it appears on the menu, except for a couple of sneaky “secret menu” concoctions that we couldn’t resist trying. Now, let the rankings begin!
Secret Menu Drink: Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew with Peppermint and White Chocolate Mocha Sauce: First place goes to this hidden gem that TikTok just couldn’t keep a secret. This glorious concoction starts with a Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew and takes a wild ride with two pumps of White Chocolate Mocha sauce and a pump of Peppermint syrup. Trust us, this drink is the definition of perfection. It’s sweet but not sickeningly so, and the Vanilla Sweet Cream makes it velvety smooth. We tried this one first, and everything that followed simply tasted like a sip of disappointment. At around $5 for a Grande, this is a budget-friendly winner that will have you dancing with holiday joy.
Hot Chestnut Praline Latte: If there was ever a drink that tastes like Christmas in a cup, it’s this one. Take a sip, and you’ll instantly be transported to Central Park, where the air is filled with the irresistible aroma of roasted nuts. It’s like a cozy hug from the holidays, minus the oversized knitted sweater. This latte strikes the perfect balance between festive flavors and sweetness. No wonder it scored high on our taste test, with a resounding 50/60.
Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Frappuccino: Against all odds, a Frappuccino has secured a spot in our top three. Brace yourself for a sip of pure sweetness that will have you doing the holiday happy dance. It’s a true delight that we couldn’t stop raving about. But let’s be real, this is not an everyday drink unless you’re ready to turn into a literal smoothie. Still, it’s worth indulging in this delightful frozen treat at least once during the holiday season.
Now, let’s switch things up and reveal the drinks that didn’t quite make it to the top, but still managed to leave an impression — for better or worse.
- Oleato Gingerbread Oatmilk Latte (tied with…)
- Secret Menu Drink: Iced Chai Tea Latte with Peppermint
- Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte
- Caramel Brulée Latte
- Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino
- Iced Chestnut Praline Latte
These drinks, while not our absolute favorites, still deserve a mention. Some fell short in terms of flavor, like the Oleato Gingerbread Oatmilk Latte that left our taste testers scratching their heads, wondering where the gingerbread went. Others, like the Caramel Brulée Latte, played it safe and lacked that extra touch of holiday magic. But hey, even the “forgettable” drinks deserve a chance to shine.
To add some extra zest to our ranking, we’ve created a handy-dandy table summarizing the official scores for each drink:
|Oleato Gingerbread Oatmilk Latte (tied)
|Secret Menu Drink: Iced Chai Tea Latte with Peppermint (tied)
|Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte
|Caramel Brulée Latte
|Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino
|Iced Chestnut Praline Latte
|Hot Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte (tied)
|Iced Gingerbread Oatmilk Chai (tied)
As you can see, there’s a little something for everyone in this delightful lineup. Some drinks performed better in the hot version, revealing their true holiday potential, while others shone brightly in their icy forms. And of course, we have our one-of-a-kind classics, like the iconic Peppermint Mocha.
Now, dear readers, it’s time to embark on your own Starbucks holiday drink adventure. Remember, taste is subjective, and what brings joy to one person might not be another’s cup of tea (or latte!). So, grab your cozy sweater, slip into your trendy boots, and let your taste buds guide you through the winter wonderland of Starbucks’ holiday drinks. And please, drink responsibly (we don’t need a caffeine-induced snowball fight on our hands).
Cheers to a season filled with fashion-forward sips and memorable moments!
