For the last month or so Starbucks have been using the famous Seasonal Red Cups together with winter specialities such as Eggnog Latte and Hot Mulled Fruit. To launch their Christmas Drinks selection of Toffee Nut Latte, Gingerbread Latte & Honey and Almond Hot Chocolate they decided to have a two day half price event on Friday and Saturday 20th-21st November between 12 noon and 4pm.
I had to have some of that and got myself a Venti (large) Gingerbread Latte for a knock down £2.12 and it was a lot more appealing than the last seasonal beverage I had from Costa a couple of weeks ago.
Gingerbread Latte is quite a tasty winter drink, distinctive and spicy evocative of the season of goodwill though likely to be a touch too sweet for some. My Latte was crafted using their Christmas blend coffee though with the Gingerbread it was difficult to tell.
The promotion was popular and there was a constant queue. Before leaving I ordered a take out Honey and Almond Hot Chocolate which looked fabulously velvety and left Satisfied.
