     It’s finally Fall, and for some of us that means bring on the Fall favorites! I’m talking apple cider donuts, pumpkin pie, and warm cookies. Don’t even get me started on the fashion; sweaters, UGG boots, and leggings. Oh and how could I forget, the Fall drinks! 

     We all have a favorite drink that we look forward to, when the weather starts getting colder and the leaves start to fall. Here are a few of my favorites.

1. Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte

BASIC! Maybe this drink is a tad basic, but who cares. This is definitely a favorite of mine. The flavors are perfect on a cold fall day. If you’re not a fan of pumpkin, this may not be your cup of coffee, but if you are a fan of pumpkin this is right up your alley. Some perfect pairings with this drink are old fashioned donuts, buttered croissants, and cake pops.

2. Hot Chocolate 

Contrary to popular belief, hot cocoa is not just a drink for the winter months! This drink is perfect for a comfy night in. If you’re like me, I like my hot cocoa without marshmallows. If you’re like my sister, I know you’re thinking the more marshmallows the better! However you like your hot cocoa, just make sure you don’t burn your tongue, been there done that!

3. Apple Cider

A true Fall classic! This drink has been around for ages, and it’s definitely something many people look forward to, in the Fall months. I love how versatile this drink is. You can drink it hot, for a warm calming feeling, or you can drink it cold, for a nice thirst quenching gulp. Either way you can’t go wrong with this simple, but pleasent Fall drink!

     Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Hot Cocoa, and Apple Cider, are just the tip of the iceburg when it comes to Fall drinks, but these are some of my favorites. As we get deeper into the fall season, I hope you are enjoying all your Fall favorites too!
