Here are the upcoming drinks in popular cafes Christmas 2019

Costa Coffee


One of the most popular cafes which launches its menu at Christmas is Costa. Costa has become very popular and ubiquitous on London high streets and for many, it’s somewhere they go to enjoy a variety of hot and cold drinks.

The Christmas menu has a delicious variety from Gingerbread Latte to the classic Black Forest Hot chocolate.

Coffee Blends

  • Winter Character roast


  •  Irish Velvet Latte
  • Hazelnut Praline Latte
  • Gingerbread Latte

Hot Chocolate

  • Gingerbread Hot Chocolate
  • Hazelnut Praline Hot Chocolate – my personal favorite!
  • Irish Velvet Hot Chocolate (Irish Coffee Flavour Hot Chocolate in ROI & NI)
  • New Black Forest & Cream Hot Chocolate

Christmas Frostinos

  • Irish Velvet Frostino (Irish Coffee Flavour Frostino in ROI & NI) from
  • New Hazelnut Praline Frostino

Christmas Tea

  • Christmas Tea
  • New Hot Spiced Apple

These drinks are all great to try and are around the £3.00 price range.

My personal favorite has to be the Black Forest hot chocolate as it’s got a very sweet classic flavor that just satisfies the sweet tooth I have. Couple that with a slice of cake of the new muffins Costa has introduced. They have the Terry’s Chocolate Orange Muffin in range too.

I have also tried the Gingerbread range and Hazelnut which again are great tasting drinks. The combination of flavor alongside the whipped cream is especially crafty.

Caffe Nero

Another high street cafe which is very popular.

With a cool variety of cool and hot drinks. They also have a great savory menu with Mozzarella and Mushroom paninis and soups.

Most cafes also have extra toppings like marshmallows, sprinkles and syrups. All for an extra price. Great for kids.

Clementine Latte

Classic Caffè Nero latte with Clementine syrup.

A twist on the classic latte. This is sure to bring joy to those who love both coffee with an orange tinge. A real twist I have yet to try.

Gingerbread Latte

Caffè Nero latte with gingerbread syrup.

This is similar to Costa’s one and similarity is expected as it’s the season’s special treat. However, I think it’s worth trying both and comparing the taste for yourself. A warming drink – gingerbread is great and tastes unique when in drink form.

Roasted Hazelnut Latte

Classic Caffè Nero latte with hazelnut syrup.

This 148 calories hot drink is so popular. Again the flavors are similar to other cafes menu but there will always be a cafe you prefer over the other. It’s all about the individuals taste bud, budget, and how much they like the way the barrister makes there regular drink.

I know some people choose certain places for excellent customer service which is equally as important as taste. You don’t want to enjoy a drink you love in an ambiance that’s off.

Salted Caramel Latte

Caffè Nero latte with salted caramel syrup

Again another classic we have here on the list. Different in the sense that it’s Salted caramel which is a hit flavor for latte.

Pret A Manger


Another national favorite. Their menu is quite interesting and varied. If we start with their range of drinks – there is plenty to choose from.

Gingerbread Latte

I haven’t tried this one before but it is ideal for gingerbread lovers. Topped with whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon this is a divine treat for anyone to enjoy. Gingerbread is a nation favorite flavor!

Orange Hot Chocolate

Organic hot chocolate with orange syrup. Finished with a swirl of whipped cream and a dusting of chocolate powder.

Mint Hot Chocolate

With a lavish dusting of chocolate powder and a shot of mint syrup, this drink is sure to warm you up in the winter. Luxury hot chocolate hits the spot all the time. It’s perfect mostly with mini marshmallows and whipped cream.

For a real twist try a mocha with variety of milk such as oat milk, soy milk, almond or my favorite coconut milk. Tastes like Bounty.

Creme Brulee Latte

And lastly, we have this unique flavor. This has steamed milk and rich caramel brulee sauce, topped with whipped cream and caramel brulee topping. Try it with added extras like cocoa dusting, whipped cream for a real winter treat.

There you have it guys –  a real quick guide to help you decide what’s across the menus and what you will love. Try to experiment and try things you may not have.

You’d be surprised to find that you might like latte with coconut milk or another alternative. Either way there’s no harm trying the savory stuff too. Pret have an excellent range of muscatel soups including the Vegan Chilli soup which is just spectacular.
