A Definitive Ranking Of Each Holiday Drink At Starbucks

It's the most wonderful time of the year: holiday drink season! Every sip tastes like Christmas in a cup, and we are so here for it. Plus, the cups are so merry!

A Definitive Ranking Of Each Holiday Drink At Starbucks

Holiday drinks are substantially better than pumpkin spice and no one can change my mind.

1. Caramel Brûlée Latte 

Espresso, steamed milk, and caramel brûlée sauce topped with whip cream and bits of caramel.

2. Peppermint Mocha 

Honestly, the peppermint mocha and caramel brûlée latte are tied for first. These are my two favorite holiday drinks; I order them on rotation. The best part of this drink is definitely the chocolate curls on top.

You can also order the peppermint mocha as a frappucino, but who drinks cold drinks in the middle of winter?

3. Chestnut Praline Chai Latte 

During every season other than Christmas, chai tea is my go to drink. The chestnut praline chai latte adds a holiday twist that'll make you want to roast chestnuts over an open fire and maybe sing a Christmas carol or two.

4. Chestnut Praline Latte

Basically the same as the drink above, minus the spice and flavor of chai.

5. Holiday Spice Flat White 

In general, a flat white is a really good, simple drink, excluding all the "froofy" ingredients of the other holiday drinks. Simply a classic.

6. Gingerbread Latte

I love the mix of sweet and spice that comes with this drink, plus, the ground nutmeg on top is an added flavor bonus that really makes you feel warm and toasty on the inside.

7. Toasted White Chocolate Mocha 

This drink is a little too much on the sweet side for me, but also I'm not a supporter of traditional white chocolate mocha. Sorry not sorry.

8. Eggnog Latte

Eggnog for sure weirds me out, despite the fact that it is a holiday staple. Not a fan. Again, sorry not sorry.

Happy sipping!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
