The Holidays are back at Starbucks with holiday drinks like Peppermint Mocha and four new holiday cups available now.

“Starting tomorrow (Nov. 6), you can enjoy the comforts of the season at Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada with a flurry of seasonal favorites, including Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte and Eggnog Latte, along with new holiday cups, food items and gifts,” Starbucks said.

New Holiday Cups.  Every year since 1997, Starbucks has issued a set of four holiday cups with a new theme and new design each year. This year’s theme, Carry the Merry, is an invitation to enjoy the little moments of brightness around you, Starbucks said.

“Our thought behind the cups this year was about people carrying them out in the world as messengers of joy,” said Jeff Wilkson, creative director for Starbucks. “In a way that message deepened as we got further and further into this year. We want to be that beacon for people, a brief moment that they can look forward to.”

The four new cups (see photo above) available in shops starting Nov. 6 are:

  • Ribbon: This design brings forward joyful elements of the holiday season in ribbons of brand greens and a jolly red wrapped like a cozy holiday sweater. Look closely and you’ll see a familiar crown, tail, and scales. The design is repeated on this year’s collectible Starbucks red holiday cup.
  • Dot: Stripes swirl around a field of Starbucks house green punctuated by playful polka dots, sharing the sentiment to “carry the merry.”
  • Sparkle: This red cup has vintage vibes, with cutout shapes in green like glittering holiday ornaments. The motif is repeated in a snowy white on Starbucks cold beverage cups.
  • Brand Wrap: This modern, scaled-up version of the ribbon design features bold bands of holiday color and the Starbucks wordmark, designer street style.
