Move over, pumpkin spice. Yesterday, Starbucks announced the return of their annual holiday drink menu—available in stores today. Classic favorites like the peppermint mocha and gingerbread latte are back, along with four new holiday cup designs.

Today only, fans of the coffee chain can also pick up a reusable red holiday cup completely free with a drink purchase, while supplies last. If you’re lucky enough to score a reusable red cup, you can use it to save money throughout the holiday season. Between November 3 and January 7, bring the reusable cup to a participating Starbucks after 2 p.m. any day to get 50 cents of a 16-ounce holiday beverage. If you aren't able to pick up the free cup, they'll be available for purchase for $2.50 later in the month, and purchased cups will get you the same discount all season long.

The brand’s press release also announces the return of these classic holiday drinks: Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Eggnog Latte. Each drink will be available hot, iced or as a Frappucino, starting today.

Starbucks also promises a variety of new holiday treats, including Chocolate Swirl Brioche, Pistachio Honey Croissant and a Sugarplum Cheese Danish. Returning holiday favorites include the Gingerbread Loaf, Penguin Cake Pop, Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop, Snowman Cookie, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Carved Ham and Swiss Breakfast Sandwich and the Holiday Turkey Panini.

We’re trying to decide which of our favorite holiday drinks to order first—and you know we’ll be getting a penguin cake pop to go with it!
