The CPL is a pretty solid addition to Starbucks' roster of holiday drinks. It's got a very different flavor from their other offerings, and, for people looking for a slightly more complex tasting experience (nutty, roasty) that'll fill them with nostalgia for: a) winter, b) baseball games, or c) street carts, this is the drink for you.
Plus, if you buy five of Starbucks' holiday drinks through December 25th, you can receive a free grande espresso drink. So get festive.
