Tackling my next challenge, I went on over to Starbucks to try their newest Christmas drink. Starbucks hasn't introduced a new drink in five years so this is a BIG deal. Apparently, Christmas drinks at Starbucks are "basic" but I am going to pretend I didn't get the memo because anyone who says that is a grinch and trying to ruin Christmas for everyone.
Moving on... I got a venti because why not. I have to say it tasted pretty darn delicious. Maybe it didn't taste exactly like pralines and chestnut but it did remind me of wool blankets and sleighs. I thought it tasted like a regular latte if a regular latte had a child with a marshmallow. Which is delicious. More to the point, it a had vanilla and hazelnutty after taste that really made for a warm delicious experience. If you have 6 dollars and 500 calories to spare I would highly recommend this beverage.
