When do Starbucks holiday drinks start in 2020? This year’s theme, Carry the Merry, is an invitation to enjoy the little moments of brightness around you.  Starting Nov. 6, you can enjoy the comforts of the season at Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada with a flurry of seasonal favorites, including Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte and Eggnog Latte, along with new holiday cups, food items and gifts.

Whether you’re a fan of Peppermint Mochas or the Chestnut Praline Latte we hope you’ll agree that they’re all pretty great. So when do Starbucks holiday drinks start in 2020?
