Drink up some holiday cheer

CC's delivers wintery favorites in a cup. Comment for a chance to win CC's coffee and a gift card! As the holidays draw ever closer, you often need a pick-me-up while doing that dreaded last-minute shopping. Roll through the CC's drive-thru or take a small respite inside one of the multiple coffeehouses around town and enjoy one of the shop's festive drinks.

The homage to candy cane season starts with the peppermint mocha, perfect for chocolate lovers who want a little variation. The eggnog latte is all of the indulgent flavors without the alcohol, so drinking and driving is not an issue.

If you'd rather drink your dessert, there's the pumpkin pie latte with all of the spices that you remember from your grandmother's signature pie. The bananas foster latte, however, is an absolutely decadent drink that tastes like they simply blended up the rum-soaked bananas and poured them in a cup.

Tempting, isn't it? Find CC's at 130 N. College; 1315 Camellia Blvd., Suite 100; 2825 Ambassador Caffery Pkwy.; and 4600 Ambassador Caffery Pkwy.
