Candy Cane Mocha (Starbucks) By @Cinabar

Starbucks Candy Cane Mocha

What better way to end the year than relaxing with a soothing hot drink, and so I decided to treat myself to something nice from Starbucks. This is the end of the seasonal menu for them, with the New Year beginning tomorrow I can’t imagine the menu being around much longer. Rather than my brain being set to January = Health, Im still on December = Indulgence, so what the heck I ordered a Starbucks Candy Cane Mocha.
The drink comes topped with cream, and strawberry sauce, the mocha itself is flavoured with peppermint. The picture on the board shows the drink looking spectacular in a glass mug, but in store they serve it in a pottery mug. I know they needed the red sauce to look like candy cane stripes, but strawberry and peppermint is a bit of a curious combination. I solved this problem by eating the cream first with the sauce, and having the drink second, crisis averted.
Peppermint, coffee and chocolate do all work well together and it turns out this drink is one of my favourites of the season. It is a shame to have discovered it so late into December, but it is a drink I will be on the look out for next year!
I hope you all have had a good 2018, and that you have a brilliant and Happy New Year!!!
