It’s likely coffee fans across the country have already sampled some Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Lattes, Chestnut Praline Lattes, Eggnog Lattes, or the annual Christmas Blend coffee. But now, the popular chain has announced a special new drink addition to add some holiday joy to your daily routine: the Starbucks Irish Cream Cold Brew.

“The flavors of vanilla and cocoa in our newest Holiday beverage perfectly complement the smooth, Starbucks Cold Brew, to create a deliciously festive sip,” Starbucks said in a press statement.

“It pairs so well with cold brew because of the chocolate flavor in the Irish cream and the cocoa notes from the coffee,”  said Erin Marinan, product developer for Starbucks R&D. “I think about that customer who’s in the middle of work or shopping, and this will help get them into the holiday spirit for the rest of the day.”
