Starbucks has announced three new limited-edition mocha drinks! The trio of drinks is a new Black and White Mocha Collection, which includes a rich hot chocolate, a blended Frappuccino, and an espresso-filled mocha. What makes each drink “black and white” is a combination of dark and white chocolate, and each drink is topped with whipped cream and a sprinkling of chocolate “sequins” representing a black tie.
All three drinks are available at Starbucks stores in the US and Canada starting on Dec. 27 and lasting through the new year, while supplies last. If you plan on wearing a fancy dress for New Year’s Eve, you might as well do it up and have a black-tie Starbucks drink to match! If your go-to drink is a mocha any day of the week, read ahead to get the details on each chocolaty beverage and decide on your favorite.
The new Black and White Hot Cocoa consists of dark mocha sauce and white chocolate mocha sauce combined with steamed milk, and it’s finished with whipped cream and chocolate “sequins.”
Frappuccino-lovers will want to try the Black and White Frappuccino blended beverage, a combination of dark mocha sauce, white chocolate mocha sauce, Frappuccino roast coffee, milk, and ice. It’s topped with whipped cream and chocolate “sequins,” too.
Available hot or iced, the Black and White Mocha starts with Starbucks’s espresso roast poured over a swirl of white chocolate and dark mocha, which melts and creates a rich base. Baristas then add steamed milk, and the beverage is topped with whipped cream and a strip of chocolate “sequins” to resemble a black tie.
