3. Toasted White Mocha
The toasted white mocha is another staple of the holiday menu, this a great option for those who love vanilla flavored drinks. Topped with whip cream, this drink is definitely on the more sweet side, but is a great choice when needing some sweetness throughout the day.

2. Chestnut Praline Latte
Another fan favorite since its release in 2014 with just the right mix of sweet and spicy flavors. Those who like chestnut creamer in their coffee will love this drink. This warm drink is perfect for a cold winter day by the tree.
