5 – Try one of your favorite holiday drinks from Starbucks!
Do you prefer the Gingerbread Latte, the Caramel Brûlée Latte or the Peppermint Mocha?
I plan to start a new tradition and try a different one every year.


This year, I will try the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate (thanks to my colleague Meg for the tip). 👍
