Nothing signals Christmas more than the return of the Starbucks red cups.

Whether you’re switching off the radio every time they play Mariah Carey or if you’ve already started watching Christmas movies, like it or not the Christmas cups are back.

Alongside the festive cups comes a new Christmas menu, featuring festive drinks old and new, ready to throw us into the yuletide spirit.

Each store will also have a Starbucks snowflake studded Colour-Changing Reusable Red Cup you can buy for £2.50, to help you do your bit for the environment.

The heat-sensitive technology sees your cup transform from vibrant holly green to berry red when your favourite hot beverage is poured inside and customers who use their own reusable cup receive 25p off their chosen drink.

What is on the Starbucks Christmas menu?

The red cups do not come alone, the Christmas menu will also be launching in stores this week.

New drinks include a Caramel Waffle Latte and a Fudge Brownie Hot Chocolate, as well as the classic Toffee Nut Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Eggnog Latte.

The red cups will be returning to Starbucks stores from Thursday, November 4.
