All 12 Of Starbucks’ Holiday Drinks Ranked From Worst To Best

Sure, the actual holidays are a big deal, but the day the Starbucks holiday menu arrives is monumental. So massive, in fact, that we decided to give ourselves a caffeine high by taste testing and ranking a dozen Starbucks holiday drinks from worst to best.

12. Iced Chai Latte with Peppermint (Secret Menu)

We would like to know why anyone is doing this? It's a traditional chai latte with the addition of peppermint sauce. It makes no sense and really shouldn’t exist.

11. Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte

We really want to like the sugar cookie drinks but there’s nothing that screams happiness here. The iced version is watery somehow, even though we drank it immediately after it was made, before the ice could melt. It mostly tasted like sweet water and nothing else.

10. Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Frappuccino

The Frappuccino version of the Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte isn’t a whole lot better, but the frozen-ness makes it a bit less watery and adds some flavor.

9. Hot Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte

–The hot version of the latte is the best of the bad bunch. The temperature makes the drink at least somewhat balanced, but guess what? It still tastes watery.

8. Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew with Peppermint and White Mocha (Secret Menu)

You've got vanilla, you've got peppermint, you've got white chocolate mocha. There's a reason Starbucks didn't add this to the real menu. It's enough to make even the best barista quit.
