Move over, Pumpkin Spice Latte. Starbucks has recently announced their intention to release a new seasonal coffee drink, the Chestnut Praline Latte, which will be available nationwide on November 12.

Though the drink was released to a few select cities in 2013, it will now be a standard at every Starbucks location in the U.S. during the holiday season.

The new coffee beverage is the first new holiday-only drink made available at Starbucks since the Gingerbread Latte and the Peppermint Mocha. While these drinks are officially 'discontinued,' and Chestnut Praline being advertised as a holiday-only beverage, many stores have been known to accommodate the requests year-around.

In the same press release, Starbucks also announced it is launching a new promotion for frequent Starbucks customers to win "Starbucks for Life," by simply swiping their Starbucks Card or paying with their mobile device.
