Why Starbucks Coffee Sizes Aren’t Small, Medium, and Large

Why Starbucks Coffee Sizes Aren’t Small, Medium, and Large Have you ever wondered why you have to order a tall, grande, or venti latte at Starbucks, instead of the standard small, medium, and large? The post Why Starbucks Coffee Sizes Aren’t Small, Medium, and Large appeared first on Reader's Digest.

Starbucks recently debuted its new red cup designs and core holiday lineup featuring the Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte and Eggnog Latte. Now, the chain is launching another drink inspired by a festive flavor you've likely had in your cup before: Irish cream.

24 Signs You're a Little Too Obsessed With Christmas

The new Irish Cream Cold Brew uses Starbucks Cold Brew and Irish cream-flavored syrup topped with frothy vanilla sweet cream cold foam and a stripe of cocoa powder. If you’re non-dairy, you can ask your barista to make the cold foam using an alternative milk like almond, coconut or soy, though sweet cream and skim work best, according to a Starbucks spokesperson.

You Can Get Decaf Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks, and This Is Wonderful News to Me

You Can Get Decaf Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks, and This Is Wonderful News to Me Something miraculous happened to me the other week, and it goes like this: a woman taking my order at the Starbucks near my office looked utterly surprised when I was surprised that I could get a decaf Pumpkin Spice Latte. She couldn't help but laugh at my incredulous response - I leaned in real close as if she'd just revealed some secret-menu off-limits information I wasn't supposed to say out loud, let alone know about. "No, really, you can absolutely do that!" she told me. So, when the barista called my name and I took a sip of my very own, very first decaf PSL, I was overjoyed.

During a media preview prior to its official launch, The Daily Meal was able to sample the new beverage. It tastes remarkably like the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew, but with a hint of cocoa. It’s smooth and flavorful, but we’re not 100% sure we would call this Irish cream because there is no trace of whiskey flavor. It’s a non-alcoholic drink, of course, but isn’t Irish cream without whiskey just sweetened cream?

The most prevalent flavor in the Irish Cream Cold Brew is vanilla, which is in the cold foam and the syrup. There are notes of cocoa that are near undetectable, but they’re there. This should have been called the Vanilla Cocoa Cold Brew, though it does capture the velvety mouthfeel of Baileys. It misses its namesake mark, but it's still delicious and tastes like Christmas.

We Got a Sneak Peek of Starbucks' Holiday Merch, & It's Gorgeous

  We Got a Sneak Peek of Starbucks' Holiday Merch, & It's Gorgeous We always look to Starbucks as a corporate indicator of seasonal change. In the fall (aka AUGUST), they debut the Pumpkin Spice Latte; they usually release a somehow wildly controversial red or holiday-themed cup in November; and they load their merchandise shelves with reusable holiday tumblers and cups when gift-giving season is upon us. Well, we’re skipping ahead a few months, because Starbucks just gave us a sneak peak of this year’s holiday merch, and it’s so good we just had to share. This year, the options are totally blinged out.

While it may seem a little odd to launch a cold drink during the chilliest time of year, cold coffee accounts for more than 50% of all Starbucks beverage sales.

The Irish Cream Cold Brew, which has 200 calories in a standard grande cup, is only available through the holiday season and will likely cease to exist sometime in January when stores run out of supply, per a Starbucks spokesperson. No official hot beverage launched in tandem with the cold brew, but you can add the syrup to any coffee for an extra 60 cents.

If you want to spread the love this holiday season, Starbucks is running a buy one, get one free deal on any handcrafted beverage (including the Irish Cream Cold Brew and other seasonal drinks) every Thursday in December from 2 to 7 p.m. through the Starbucks app. Looking for something cool that won’t keep you up all night? Here’s the scoop on 14 caffeine-free holiday drinks straight from the secret menu.

  We Tried Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee And It’s The Most Perfect Brunch Beverage No one will ever know this is in my coffeeI went into the taste test thinking I was going to take some sips of the Jäger, maybe mix it in with some coffee, and call it a day. When I arrived, we promptly were offered a shot of the stuff (I brought my most adventurous friend who is also a caffeine addict which was a smart move). We both never turn down a challenge and happily accepted.
