Finally, a hot celebratory, themed drink from the coffee chain.

At last we can celebrate the season with a drink that's not a frappuccino. I'm more of a hot beverage kind of person and for the longest time, if you wanted to get festive with Starbucks, you needed to get a frapp (i.e. Unicorn, Zombie and Christmas tree frappuccinos). Now we don't have to worry about being extra frigid this New Year's Eve weekend as Starbucks is releasing their hot black and white drinks to ring in the new year.

For those of you who don't know what a mocha is, it's basically like chocolate coffee... Hot espresso poured over mocha or white mocha sauce with steamed milk. It's my personal favorite. If you're not into coffee, you can get the same black and white effect with a hot chocolate.

Now if they could just add some New Year's sparkle!

Maybe next year, they can figure out how to bedazzle some caramel sauce and drizzle it over the top. Or bling out those chocolate pieces with a little edible glitter. I do love that they are using the pun, "New Year. New Mocha" though. Cheers!
