FALL. The colors are changing, the weather is changing…and so are my taste buds. (Not really though—I drink coffee year round.) If you’re wondering what warm and tasty autumn beverage to get hooked on this season, then consider it time to terminate your thirst. If you haven’t already, try out one of my five favorite fall drinks from Starbucks!
(And no, pumpkin spice did not make the list.)
I shouldn’t say these are just seasonal drinks, because I get them all the time—but when the sun comes back out I’m all about the iced versions. These are quite possibly my favorite Starbucks drinks right now/ever, but there’s nothing quite like drinking them hot indoors while watching the leaves fall. (Insert a pair of cozy socks, a good book, and a warm fire here.)
1. Caramel Macchiato
Might as well call this the “Mak-iato” drink—it’s my all time favorite. Super delicious hot, but iced is so nice-looking that sometimes I get it in cold weather, too.
2. White Mocha
This is a guilty pleasure drink so I order nonfat milk to make myself feel better. If you like it even sweeter, adding caramel is also tasty, and come winter time I definitely recommend peppermint.
3. Vanilla Latte
Okay, pretty basic (but at least it’s not pumpkin spice).
4. Black & White Hot Chocolate
If you are just not in the mood to espress-o yourself, this is hands down one of my favorites—and Starbucks makes it amazingly! Talk about the perfect blend.
5. Chai Latte
I don’t get this as often, but Chai just reminds me of fall and winter. You can always spruce it up with vanilla.
So, what are your fall favorites from Starbucks? As you could probably pick up, I’m a sugar-loving & heavy-on-the-creamer kind of coffee girl, but I’m interested in hearing what all of my readers think! Share in the comments your favorites or if your favorites are also any of the ones I’ve listed. If you have not had a chance to try out these drinks this season, I highly encourage it!
