Coffee and Music: Pairing Your Favorite Holiday Songs with Delicious Seasonal Drinks


With the holiday season approaching, it's important to take time to unwind amid all the hustle and bustle that comes with this time of year. Two of our favorite ways to step back and relax during this busy season are listening to holiday songs and sipping our favorite seasonal drinks.


And listening to holiday tunes while drinking a seasonal coffee, tea, or hot chocolate is a surefire recipe for getting into the holiday spirit!


Holiday Songs and Drink Pairings

To help get you into the holiday spirit and give you a reason to set aside time in your calendar to relax, we've taken the most popular seasonal drinks from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® and paired each with a classic holiday song that would be perfect for listening to while you sip. Check out our festive pairings below!


Christmas Cookies (G. Love & Special Sauce) and a Cookie Butter Latte

These delicious drinks feature our premium espresso with spice and brown sugar cookie notes, creating a yummy sweet and spicy holiday beverage. Whether you choose a Cookie Butter Latte, Cookie Butter Iced Latte, or a Cookie Butter Ice Blended® Drink, you're in for a treat!


And if baking cookies is one of your holiday traditions, get your cookie baking endeavors off to a truly merry start with this pairing!  


Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree (Brenda Lee) and a Peppermint Mocha Latte

Our Peppermint Mocha Latte is made by blending our premium espresso, rich dark chocolate, and peppermint. The peppermint flavor brings holiday images of eating candy canes (and trimming the tree with them too!) This festive song about singing, dancing, and decking the halls at a Christmas party is the ideal match for this festive beverage.


And if you haven't already put up your tree, be sure to come on into your local The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® to get one so you can sip and listen to this tune while decorating your tree. Who knows, you may even find that this pairing inspires some singing and dancing of your own!


Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! (Frank Sinatra) and a Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Settling in for a cozy day at home? First, get yourself a Peppermint Hot Chocolate and put on some holiday music, starting with one of the coziest holiday songs: Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!


Our Peppermint Hot Chocolate is a delightfully rich hot chocolate with the perfect amount of peppermint, an iconic holiday combination that tastes absolutely delicious. No matter what the weather's like outside, you'll be cozy and warm as you enjoy this drink and listen to these lyrics.


It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Andy Williams) and a Red Velvet Hot Cocoa

Be transported to the old-fashioned Christmases portrayed in classic movies with this holiday song and drink pairing! Our Red Velvet Hot Cocoa blends sweet cream with rich cocoa, resulting in a modern beverage reminiscent of a timeless red velvet cupcake.


As you indulge in this treat and listen to lyrics talking about marshmallows for toasting, caroling out in the snow, and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago, you'll experience a bit of holiday magic.


Walking in a Winter Wonderland (Dean Martin) and a Winter Dream Tea Latte

Our extremely popular Winter Dream Tea® Latte is a must-try blend of black tea, rooibos, sweet spices, and vanilla. Tea lovers and coffee lovers love this drink and look forward to its appearance on our seasonal drink menu.


This latte would be the perfect choice to bring with you on a walk through a winter wonderland. But no matter where you're at, our Winter Dream Tea Latte is sure to bring delight to your day.
