Fall has finally arrived, which means it’s time to start ordering all the fall drinks at Starbucks. From Pumpkin Spice Lattes to Salted Caramel Mochas, you can’t really go wrong. Here are nine fall Starbucks drinks you need to try this season. Let’s get started!
1. Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
Starbuck’s salted caramel hot chocolate is a perfect fall drink to sip on rainy mornings. A perfect combo of savory and sweet, this drink is bound to satisfy your sweet tooth. Ask for whipped cream and caramel drizzle on top to add a little extra flavor. If you haven’t had enough sugar already, add a pumpkin cookie to dip in the extra whipped cream. Yum! Hey, you only live once, am I right?
2. Maple Pecan Latte
Maple Pecan Lattes are an all encompassing fall drink perfect for the beginning of chillier weather and changing leaves. Catch up with some old friends while sipping on this tasty treat. This drink will be enough to wake you up in the morning, while also satisfying your fall flavor cravings. Delicious fall tastes like maple and pecan make this drink a perfect way to welcome in the new season. If you are a pecan pie lover like me, you will be all over this specialty drink. Getting in the fall mood has never been tastier! I can’t wait to order one of these.
3. White Chocolate Cinnamon Chai Latte
This white chocolate latte is perfect for all my chocolate lovers out there. But there’s a twist of cinnamon chai to spice up your classic white chocolate flavor. Delish! The hints of cinnamon and chai really make this treat one of a kind. This drink is a perfect combo of sweetness and caffeine to give you an extra boost of energy in the morning or afternoon. Ask for chocolate curls on top if you are really feeling fancy. Eat with a chocolate croissant or white chocolate cake pop if your sweet tooth is over the top. We all have those days.
4. Pumpkin Spice Latte
Fall is not complete without the classic pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. No one really does it quite like the holy grail of coffee itself. With a hint of pumpkin spice and everything nice, this twist on your regular latte is exactly what the doctor ordered. Sip this fall inspired treat while watching your fav Halloween movies or while carving pumpkins with friends. It doesn’t get any more fall than this. Make sure to ask for whipped cream and cinnamon sprinkled on top to make this drink Instagram or Pinterest worthy. Your followers will thank you for blessing their feed with this drool-worthy drink.
5. Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino
Who said it ends at a regular pumpkin spice latte? Why stop there, when you can have a pumpkin spice Frappuccino too. This is a great drink to treat yourself to on chilly fall days where you still want a cold, frozen drink. This is basically a pumpkin spice milkshake. Yum! With so many delicious Frappuccino flavors to choose from, this unique flavor is only available during fall months, so grab it while you can! Before you know it, the pumpkin spice frap will be making room for the peppermint mocha frap. Time flies when you’re having fun. Are those sleigh bells I hear?
6. Salted Caramel Mocha
Did someone say salted caramel mocha? Count me in! This salty and sweet twist on your classic chocolatey mocha is seriously irresistible. If you can’t choose between sweet or savory, this drink is your best bet. Ask for whipped cream and caramel drizzle for a little something extra. Pair this drink with a banana nut muffin or some cinnamon swirl coffee cake to jumpstart your day. Who says you can’t have dessert for breakfast? You’re an adult. Do what you want. This is basically a salted caramel cupcake in a drink, and nothing sounds better than that. You’ll thank me later.
7. Caramel Apple Spice Cider
If you are an apple cider lover like me, this drink is for you. But Starbucks’ version of regular apple cider comes with a spicy, caramel twist. Apple cider is often associated with frolicking around the pumpkin patch or going apple picking. You can even take it to the next level and wander around Disneyland with this delicious fall drink. Plus, fall is one of the best times of the year to explore Disney. The park is decked out with Halloween and fall decorations, and some of the rides are even spooked up a bit. Don’t be too scared, it’s only a theme park.
8. Pumpkin Hot Chocolate
Who knew pumpkin hot chocolate was a thing? This is on the Starbucks “secret menu,” so you have to be an OG Starbucks lover to even order this baby. If you are craving a hot chocolate, try ordering this pumpkin inspired hot chocolate to ring in the new season and really make it feel like fall. I can picture drinking this while watching a high school football game wrapped in fuzzy blankets. So cozy. The best thing about hot drinks is they double as handwarmers. Pumpkin is the new chocolate during fall. I totally didn’t just make that up. I promise I know what I’m talking about.
9. Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino
Pumpkin pie in a drink? Um, yes please! This pumpkin pie Frappuccino is made for fall. Why wait until Thanksgiving to eat an entire pumpkin pie, when you could just drink one? Sounds pretty perfect to me. Order this drink sneakily, because, once again, it’s on the infamous “secret menu.” This baby is only available during certain chillier months, so snag a taste while you can. This drink is basically a mixture of pumpkin ice cream and a pumpkin milkshake. Nothing can beat that.
