Just when you thought you tried every holiday drink at Starbucks, they go ahead and add another one.

The coffee chain has unveiled their latest festive offering, the Irish Cream Cold Brew, reported USA Today.

The icy beverage consists Starbucks Cold Brew coffee and Irish cream-flavored syrup, topped with vanilla sweet cream cold foam and a dusting of cocoa powder.

The frothy sweet treat will be available for a limited-time at Starbucks locations across North America. Fans in Canada will also be able to have a hot version with the Irish Cream Americano.

And as an added bonus, the Irish Cream syrup is available as a topping for any of the chain’s other beverages for an additional charge.

But in case you were wondering, the Irish Cream Cold Brew does not include Irish Whisky as its non-alcoholic. 21 and over customers will need to add their own booze at home to get that extra buzz.

The Irish Cream Cold Brew is the latest option on Starbucks jam-packed holiday beverage list which includes Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Eggnog Latte, Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Peppermint Mocha, Pumpkin Spice Latte, Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, Salted Caramel Mocha and Toasted White Chocolate Mocha.

In addition, the chain announced the relaunch of their annual "Starbucks for Life" holiday contest.

From now until January 6th, members of the coffee giant’s loyalty program can enter the contest by making a purchase with a Starbucks card or through the app for a chance to win one of five grand prizes of a free coffee drink every day for the next 30 years.

Other prizes include free coffee for a year, movie tickets, a Playstation 4 and a bunch of  Starbucks branded-items.

Finally, to make your holiday season extra joyous, the chain announced it’s popular Happy Hour promotion will occur every Thursday in December.

From 2-7 p.m on Thursday December 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th, customers that order a grande or larger handcrafted beverage (including the Irish Cream Cold Brew) will receive another one for free.

Christmas cheers to that!
