The drink features espresso with peppermint dark chocolate syrup and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and a chocolate drizzle.
It's also available minus the espresso as the Peppermint Hot Chocolate.
The drink's return also ushers in the arrival of this year's festive holiday-themed McCafe hot cup, which is Forest Stewardship Council certified (sourced in an environmentally-friendly manner).
This year, select locations are also offering iced versions of the Peppermint Mocha in new iced clear cups.
