Starbucks Celebrates New Year With Black and White ‘Tuxedo’ Mocha

The Starbucks Tuxedo Mocha, available starting this week, is made with a mix of chocolate mocha and white chocolate sauce

Starbucks is ringing in the New Year in style.

Whether or not you’re going out to a fancy party to ring in 2017, rest assured that your Starbucks order will be dressed to the nines. Starbucks has released a new drink called the Tuxedo Trio: a line of black and white mocha lattes, Frappuccinos, and hot chocolate drinks made with half mocha syrup and half white chocolate syrup, emulating the color of a snazzy tuxedo.

The mocha starts with hot espresso poured over dark chocolate mocha sauce and white chocolate mocha sauce. Steamed milk is added and the drink is topped with whipped cream, a mocha drizzle, and a handful of dark chocolate curls. The drink can also be ordered iced.

The limited-edition holiday drink is available starting this week at all Starbucks locations.


The 12-ounce Tuxedo Mochas and Frappuccinos are marked between $4.25 and $4.45 depending on the location; a 12-ounce hot chocolate costs between $3.25 and $3.45.
