On Tuesday, Starbucks announced that it is releasing a new holiday drink. However, the new offering may come as a surprise to some as it is a cold brew instead of a hot drink.

According to CNN, the new beverage is called the Irish Cream Cold Brew. It will be made by mixing the coffee chain's cold brew coffee and Irish cream syrup. Then, vanilla sweet cream cold foam and cocoa powder will be placed on top to finish the drink. A grande will reportedly cost $4.45 to $4.75, depending on which store you visit. 

Customers will be able to further customize their order if they want to by making various specifications to the cold foam, including using almond, soy, or coconut milk. Additionally, the Irish cream syrup that is used as a topping can also be used in other beverages for an additional fee.

This would not be the first time that the popular coffee shop has added a cold brew to its menu. Earlier this year, Starbucks introduced a Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew that combined the coffee with vanilla, pumpkin cream foam and pumpkin spice topping.

Aside from the new cold drinks, the company continues to sell its traditional holiday drinks this year, including its chestnut praline latte, peppermint mocha, and other offerings that customers have come to expect over the years. It has also started featuring its classic red cups for the 2019 season. However, this year's theme comes with a bit of a twist as it relies heavily on typography in three of the four designs. 

The new Irish Cream Cold Brew will not be around for very long, as it is a limited-time offering, but those who are interested in trying the new drink can try it out starting on Friday
