Sip on these festive drinks from Tampa Bay area spots

Bring on the maple bourbon, salted brown butter, and a whole lotta peppermint.

The wreath-laden glasses and sprinkles amp up the festive at Grove.

Now that we’re finally seeing some colder weather around here — hopefully writing this doesn’t jinx it — we’ve rounded up the perfect treats to cozy up with in the cold.

  • The next time you head to Pass-A-Grille or St. Pete for a winter beach day, pick up a treat at Grove Surf & Coffee. The ultra-aesthetic coffee shop is serving up gingerbread lattes, beachside nog lattes, peppermint mocha lattes, and peppermint matcha lattes — topped with sprinkles and gingerbread cookie toppers, of course.
  • Make the pre-work coffee run a tad more fun by grabbing some minty goodness like a white chocolate peppermint latte, peppermint mocha latte, or peppermint /white chocolate cold brew at Buddy Brew. Pro tip: The popular beanery also serves a peppermint mocha hot chocolate for the littles (or bigs).
  • Central Avenue’s Bandit is serving its maple bourbon lattes again. And this year, the St. Pete fave is also making salted brown butter lattes and cold foam.
