COSTA’S Christmas menu is here and it includes a new Irish Coffee flavoured range to get you in the mood for the festive season.
Shoppers can try the Irish velvet flavour in a latte, cappuccino and hot chocolate and Costa says it tastes of “Christmas in a cup” with hints of caramel and vanilla.
Traditional Irish coffees contain whisky but Costa has confirmed the syrup, which will be branded as Irish coffee flavour in Ireland, is alcohol-free.
The new drinks will start from £3.30 for a regular size and will be available in all stores nationwide for two months, from November 1 to January 1.
Also new to the menu and released on the same day is the festive spiced cappuccino, which is seasoned with spices included cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise.
This cappuccino is priced from £2.85 for a regular.

Fan favourites making a return include the black forest and cream hot chocolate, gingerbread and hazelnut praline, all available as lattes and hot chocolate.
The returning drinks, which have a starting price of £3.30 for a regular, are already available to buy in stores.
Sadly, it doesn't look like the caramelised orange and cream range from last year will be coming back for 2019.
We’ve asked Costa for the relevant calorie and sugar information and we’ll update this article when we know more.
In terms of festive food, the coffee chain is bringing out a Terry’s Chocolate Orange muffin, complete with orange sauce and topped with a segment of the iconic chocolate on top.
The muffin is priced at £2.25 and comes out on November 1.
Pigs and blankets mac and cheese is also returning to the food menu, priced from £3.95, as well as a turkey and the trimmings toastie, also £3.95.
The price you’ll pay for your Costa varies from store to store, so do keep that in mind when ordering.

There's still time to try Costa's autumn menu which includes a Lotus Biscoff muffin and bonfire spiced latte.
You might have heard that the coffee chain was giving out free hot drinks earlier this month via their self-service touch-screen "Express" machines.
But the freebie caused chaos when customers moaned the machines kept breaking down.
