We might be past Halloween, but for the fall lovers, the season is still in full swing. Thankfully, that also means there is still time to try some new fall beverages from Starbucks, and it doesn’t have to be a Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL). Here are some of Quotable’s favorite fall beverages to indulge in before it’s too late, other than PSLs!
1. Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew
For the pumpkin lovers that may not enjoy the Pumpkin Spice Latte, there is the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew. Starbucks serves their cold brew coffee over ice, sweetened with vanilla, and then adds sweet cold foam on top that tastes just like pumpkin pie! The combination of the cold brew and pumpkin foam is not overpowering or too sweet, but if you want to make it sweeter & creamier, ask for extra pumpkin foam.
2. Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato
New to the Starbucks menu this year is the Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato. It can be served hot or iced, but the hot Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato is the perfect warm beverage for those crisp, almost winter mornings. The beverage is made with blonde espresso, giving it a lighter taste, and sweetened with apple brown sugar syrup, then topped with spiced apple drizzle. If you’re hesitant to try espresso with an apple flavor, just know it’s not as weird as it sounds! The apple/oatmilk combination almost tastes like apple oatmeal in a cup and if you like Apple Jacks cereal, then you’ll probably enjoy this new fall beverage.
3. Chai Latte
A classic choice for a fall beverage is the Chai Latte. Also served hot or iced, it is perfect for anyone that doesn’t drink coffee, but wants to enjoy a Starbucks fall beverage. The Starbucks menu describes their Chai as “black tea infused with warming spices,” aka the perfect fall day in a cup. There are a few fun ways to customize a chai latte this fall: If you are also a pumpkin spice lover, ask your barista to add some pumpkin spice to your hot latte, or if you’re enjoying an iced chai latte, ask for some pumpkin cold foam. And if you’re a coffee lover, ask for a dirty chai latte (aka a chai latte with an added shot of espresso).
