Starbucks is holding more than 1,000 “pop-up parties,” serving free drinks across the US.

Starting on Friday, December 27, the coffee giant began hosting pop-up parties at more than 200 stores every day from 1 to 2 p.m. local time. The parties will continue every day until 2 p.m. local time on Tuesday, December 31, New Year’s Eve.

Starbucks said customers who visit participating stores during the pop-up parties would receive a free tall handcrafted espresso drink, including options such as lattes, Peppermint Mochas, and Iced Toasted White Chocolate Mochas.

There is a limit of one free drink – hot or iced – per customer. Drinks must be ordered in person, so mobile and delivery orders are not included as part of the free-beverage deal.

The more than 200 stores hosting pop-up parties change every day over the five final days of 2019. Customers can check which stores near them are hosting pop-up parties and giving away free drinks by visiting
