The new Starbucks holiday drink is not what you're expecting

It's that time of the year. You know, the time when we look forward to having a warm latte in one of those festive Starbucks red cups.

This year, however, you might need to sit in front of a fire in order to drink this "holiday drink."

Starbucks announced this year's holiday drink, and there's a twist: it's served iced!

It's called the Spiced Sweet Cream Nariño 70 Cold Brew!

If you live in Florida, this might be the perfect winter drink. For everyone else across the country, this festive drink might not be exactly what you're looking to cozy up to.

The cold brew is spiced with cinnamon, anise, nutmeg and vanilla and finished with sweet cream, which does sound like Christmas in a cup... minus the ice.

If you would rather stick to hot beverages, don't worry! Other classics like the Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Eggnog Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Peppermint Mocha are still available.

If you're feeling adventurous, the Spiced Sweet Cream Nariño 70 Cold Brew will be available at the end of November.
