Starbucks Debuts Festive Drinks With Chocolate ‘Sequin’ Black Ties

New year, new flavors

In the spirit of the new year, Starbucks has debuted its limited edition Black and White Mocha Collection featuring a trifecta of espresso, hot cocoa, and Frappuccino beverages. Each specialty drink is dressed in its own “black tie” of chocolate “sequins” atop a dollop of whipped cream.

The Black and White Mocha is built with Starbucks’ signature espresso roast, white chocolate, dark mocha, and steamed milk. Customers can order it hot or iced.

The Black and White Hot Cocoa features dark mocha sauce and white chocolate mocha sauce with steamed milk.
