Costa Coffee announces Christmas drinks menu with new stars and returning favourites

The Nation’s Favourite Coffee Shop, Costa Coffee, is launching a magical new Christmas drinks menu to mark the start of the festive season. In stores from Thursday 1 November, Costa’s Christmas drinks are hotly anticipated each year with the 2018 creations sure to spread Christmas cheer.

Festive flavours: delicious new Christmas creations

Costa Coffee introduces two new flavours to the festive menu – Caramelised Orange & Cream and Hazelnut Praline & Cream both of which will be available as either a latte or a hot chocolate.

The Caramelised Orange & Cream Latte and Caramelised Orange & Cream Hot Chocolate are inspired by the iconic food pairing of chocolate and orange. The warming drinks are made using Costa’s signature blends of coffee or hot chocolate combined with zesty orange syrup, topped with lashings of cream and crowned with a caramelised orange slice.

Continuing the chocolate theme are the Hazelnut Praline & Cream Latte and Hazelnut Praline & Cream Hot Chocolate. Here our signature latte or hot chocolate is flavoured with hazelnut syrup, atop a thick layer of Belgian Chocolate sauce topped with a swirl of cream and our new Crispy Chocolate Truffle Crumb. What’s more, customers ‘on-the-go’ can enjoy a version of this drink from Costa Express to fuel the drive home for Christmas!

Little Luxuries: small in size, big on festive indulgence

Christmas might be about giving to others, but it’s also a time for people to treat themselves, with Costa’s Little Luxuries the perfect pick me up. The Luxury Chocolate is a small but beautifully formed rich, dark and decadent Hot Chocolate. The Luxury Caramel is a rich and silky Hot Caramel topped with milk foam. What’s even better is that both these drinks are under 200kcal.
