There are two very exciting times in the year for Starbucks drinkers. First, there's the arrival of the ever sought after Pumpkin Spice Latte—the mythical coffee beverage that launched a thousand fall-flavored spin-offs. And then there's the return of the red holiday cup. Normally, this holy grail of Christmas drinks doesn't show up until after Halloween. This year, it's here today.
But don't get too excited: Just a few lucky customers will actually be able to get their hands on these subtly ombré babes because they'll only be available at select European locations. In addition to the cups, holiday drinks—like Peppermint Mochas and Gingerbread Lattes—will also be available. You can find them at Selfridges in London and Birmingham, Galleries Lafayette in Paris, Donau Zentrum in Vienna, and Europark in Salzburg. So if you happen to be in any of those places, good for you! We're super jealous.
There's no word yet on when the cups will arrive stateside, though it will likely be sometime in early November. Of course, Starbucks did offer an excellent PSL early release hack to super fans just last month—followed by the hyped-up release of the Toasted Graham Latte. So, if we're lucky, the chain might do something similar this time around too. Fingers crossed!
