Dig out your tuxedos and gowns and head over to your local Starbucks for a taste of their newest black and white mocha collection. Elegant and refined, these festive drinks are only available for a limited time. Starting today, December 27, Starbucks locations in the United States and Canada will be crafting and selling three different limited edition signature espresso roast coffee beverages- a Black and White Mocha, a Black and White Hot Cocoa and a Black and White Frappuccino® blended beverage.
The trio of beverages boast white and dark chocolate and are served with a swirl of whipped cream and chocolate sequins.
Erin Marinan of the Starbucks development team shares that the New Year is a time to celebrate. "The Black and White Mocha collection is a festive way to ring in 2018, with a stripe of sparkly chocolate sequins to resemble a black tie." We couldn't agree more.
1. Black and White Mocha
Dark mocha sauce and white mocha sauce are married with hot espresso, then melted into a rich silky swirl. Steamed milk is carefully added then the drink is topped with whipped cream and chocolate, making this tuxedo mocha truly elegant.
2. Black and White Hot Cocoa
Like the Black and White Mocha, the Black and White Hot Cocoa starts with a blend of dark mocha sauce and white mocha sauce. A helping of steamed milk is added then the new drink is topped with whipped cream and dark chocolate curls.
3. Black and White Mocha Frappuccino
If you enjoy your coffee beverages cold, this last drink is for you. White chocolate mocha sauce and dark chocolate mocha sauce are swirled together with frappuccino roast coffee, milk and cool ice. The blended beverage is finished off with a topping of whipped cream and chocolate sequins.
The drinks will be available in select Starbucks locations through the first week of January or until supplies last.
