When it comes to Starbucks specialty drinks, everyone has their favorite drinks but there is no denying that there are few that can compare to the Peppermint Mocha!

No holiday season is complete without at least one stop by Starbucks to enjoy the delicious holiday drink which has become one of the most iconic holiday menu items of the season. Fans flock to Starbucks every holiday season and can’t get enough of iconic Starbucks drink, as our Instagram feeds prove season after season.

If you enjoy the Peppermint Mocha during the holiday season, we have wonderful news for you as it seems the limited-edition drink isn’t quite as limited-edition as other seasonal holiday menu items!

Is the Peppermint Mocha limited-edition?

If you love the Peppermint Mocha drink, we have great news for you. While the drink is often billed as being limited-edition, you can actually get the Peppermint Mocha all year round!

That’s right, as Starbucks confirmed on Twitter, the Peppermint Mocha can be enjoyed any time of the year — including when celebrating Christmas in July. However, there is one twist.

While you can enjoy the Peppermint Mocha all year round, only during the holiday season will you be able to enjoy the drink in all its festive glory as you won’t be able to get the chocolate curls or the festive red cup outside of the holiday season.

What’s in the Starbucks Peppermint Mocha?

Wondering what exactly is in the Peppermint Mocha? Here is what ingredients make up the festive holiday drink from Starbucks:

  • 2-4 pumps peppermint syrup
  • 2-4 pumps melted chocolate
  • Signature espresso
  • Steamed milk
  • Vanilla-flavored classic whipped cream
  • Dark chocolate peppermint curls

Of note, the dark chocolate peppermint curls will only come with the drink during the holiday season but don’t expect us to complain as we’ll happily enjoy our Peppermint Mocha’s all year round, curls or no curls.
