STARBUCKS has kick-started the festive season with the launch of their new winter menu.

The company has introduced its first ever colour-in Christmas cup, meaning customers can get creative after they’ve purchased their favourite festive drink.

Joining the line-up this year is Festive Cold Brew, combining a classic cold brew blend with subtle Christmas-spiced notes and finished with orange and cranberry pieces.

Starbucks have also added some seasonal goodies to their food menu, including Christmas Pudding Cookies, Christmas Tree Brownies and a Turkey Feast Panini.

Brand New For 2017: Festive Cold Brew

Festive Cold Brew is the brand new festive drink for this year, designed to bring a hint of Christmas to Starbucks classic cold brew blend.

A touch of syrup is added to the slow-steeped cold brew coffee, and it is then finished with orange and cranberry pieces to bring out subtle Christmas spice flavours.
