Holiday Count Down: 12 Drinks of Christmas

We’re not sure what to do with three French hens, two turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree (besides building an epic bird palace), but holiday drinks are something we can wrap our minds and mittens around.

We invite you to celebrate the season with a ‘cuppa’ wintertime flavor from The Human Bean. Our elves (aka baristas) have been tinkering and testing, and can’t wait to craft you a beverage worthy of your favorite holiday traditions. 

12 Drinks of Christmas

Day 1: Chocolate Macadamia Dream
This twist on a classic latte features our signature rich espresso, sweet chocolate macadamia nut, and creamy oat milk. It’s a taste of the tropics with a dreamy, dairy-free twist. Mele Kalikimaka

Day 2: Candied Peppermint
What are your candy cane wishes? Make them come true with delicious white chocolate and crushed peppermint candies. Turn your favorite latte, mocha, granita, or cold brew into a drink worthy of your favorite ugly (awesome?!) holiday sweater.

Day 3: Santa’s Special
Santa wants to treat you to a little down time this year. The moment you sip this drink’s combination of rich espresso, luxurious hot chocolate, peppy peppermint and festive cherry, the holiday hustle and bustle will magically melt away.
Day 4: Eggnog Latte
Sprinkle a little nostalgia on the season with perfectly-spiced eggnog! This December favorite is available at select locations, while it lasts. Enjoy the blend of rich espresso and eggnog steamed to perfection.

Day 5: Hot Chocolate
Not just for kids and elves, our Hot Chocolate is a rich cocoa treat for all ages. Head out for your favorite snow-filled adventures with a cup in hand — and whipped cream on top!

Day 6: Peppermint Tea
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…Peppermint Tea! Find comfort in a warm cup of energizing Peppermint Tea from Steven Smith Teamaker. It’s caffeine-free, making it a perfect after-dinner treat.

Day 7: Chai
Move over, Aunt Clara…the pink bunny suit for Ralphy was cute, but let’s talk about getting what we really want. Our robust, soothing Chai is made to order and fabulously customizable. Order it hot, iced or blended, with your milk of choice. It can even be made sugar-free! 

Day 8: Snowy
The Snowy will make you want to stay in your PJs all day long (is it winter break, yet?). Grab a good book or movie and curl up with a cup of creamy white chocolate and premium espresso. Or if you feel motivated, take the Snowy out into the snow (we named it after a ski hill after all)!

Day 9: Toasted Marshmallow Breve
Chestnuts, it’s time to make room around that open fire. Toasted marshmallow flavor swirls with creamy half-and-half in this absolutely indulgent holiday treat. (Pro tip: pair with graham crackers and chocolate for the full effect.)

Day 10: Toffee Latte
Did homemade toffee make it to your annual cookie swap? If not, no worries. You can sip the holly-jolly flavors of Christmas at The Human Bean with brown-buttery English toffee, caramel, rich espresso, and milk of your choice. 

Day 11: Almond Bark
Calling all chocolate lovers and sweet tooths! The Almond Bark blends smooth white chocolate with almond to create confection perfection. Take it from our taste-testers…it’s a supremely delicious way to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year. 

Day 12: The Nutcracker
Traditionally, nutcrackers are symbols of good luck. So order yours and make a wish! This festive drink is a riff on our white chocolate Snowy, with macadamia nut and chocolate blended in. Grab an extra one for the hard-to-shop-for person on your list — because this winter warmer has got it all!

Which of your favorite holiday activities will you pair with a seasonal drink from The Human Bean? Sledding and Hot Chocolate? Ice-skating and Candied Peppermint? Caroling and Peppermint Tea? We’d love to see your photos and videos of holiday adventures fueled by our many drinks of Christmas! Share yours with #TheHumanBean.

Ask for our holiday drinks by name at a drive-thru near you. Our Human Bean family is sending thoughts of joy and happiness your way this month and all year long. Happy sipping and merry-making from all of us to you!
