UPDATE: The internet was speculating that the Holiday drinks and Free Red Cups would be back at Starbucks on November 7 based on previous years. 

However, it looks like it's actually TOMORROW! (November 6). You can stop by Starbucks and get their Free Red Cup with a purchase of a handcrafted holiday beverage. 

The 2020 holiday drink menu includes - 

The Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, and Eggnog Latte.

Here's what they've got for holiday eats

This year Starbucks will offer a new Cranberry Orange Scone in its bakery case that is sure to pair perfectly with any of its holiday drinks. You'll also see the return of the Sugar Plum Danish, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Snowman Cookie, and Snowman Cake Pop.

I'm sure they'll have a new drink that will come later in the season, but don't hold me to that. It's just what's happened in previous years. All I know is I'm SO excited to get a Caramel Brulee Latte AND my Free Red Cup tomorrow. 


Halloween is over, and that means it's time for the Pumpkin Spice Latte to say bye for the year and Starbucks Holiday menu to finally hit stores.

I feel like a coffee detective trying to figure out the exact date it's happening. Last year (2019) the Holiday menu and Free Red Cup Day dropped on November 7 and in 2018 it was November 2. It's honestly one of my favorite days of the year. Here's some proof -

So this was November 2 2018 -

And this was November 7 2019 -

MJ picked up @starbucks holiday drinks & their free cup this morning! ❤️ We’re using the cups as crossword puzzles A post shared by 97 ZOK (@97zok_rockford) on

The obsession is real. So early November has been the time for the past two years, but the internet is going with November 7. There's even a website dedicated to counting down the days until we get our free red cup.

They have a countdown on their website to help get you even more excited than you already were. But like I said, Starbucks has yet to confirm. But this week we should start seeing home holiday hints on Starbucks social media pages.

Then, hopefully by the weekend, we'll be sipping on our peppermint mochas and eating our snowman cake pops.

No news on what's on the holiday menu yet, so now we wait.
