(In no particular order)

Vanilla Chai – Brenen’s Coffee Cafe

Chai will always be my number one when it comes to coffeehouse drink choices at anytime of the year, but during the fall, my absolute favorite is Brenen’s hot vanilla chai latte. If you are craving a different flavor, they also offer a pumpkin spice or the typical spiced chai, however the vanilla chai takes the cake. And on two-for-one Tuesday, how can you possibly go wrong?

Iced Pumpkin Cream Chai Latte – Starbucks

This drink is a perfect drink for those wanting to experience the pumpkin spice vibes, without the taste of coffee. This drink, though it seems it is always sold out, is so good on the warmer fall days. The pumpkin cold foam is so sweet and pumpkin-y, a favorite for anyone looking for that fall pumpkin flavor. Be careful of the cinnamon on top though, because accidentally inhaling it is like a death sentence.

Steamed Apple juice – Starbucks

I know what you’re thinking; “Steamed apple juice? What am I 5?” However, I promise you, this drink is for all ages. This warm, delicious drink may simply be apple juice, but it is a true testament to the fall season and tastes SO GOOD. While it may not have the spice of a true cup of apple cider, on a cold, windy fall day on campus, it works just as well.

Spiced Chaider – Donkey Coffee

This drink is the perfect blend of fall flavors, chai, cider, and even pumpkin if you’re feeling that. While the pumpkin is the recommended chai pairing for this drink on Donkey’s website (you can also get vanilla), I think spiced chai is the way to go personally, because to me, spiced apple cider just screams fall, and the words “spiced chaider” just take it a step further.

vanilla and Pumpkin Chai Latte – Donkey Coffee

As I am sure you can tell by now, when I think of fall drinks, I think of chai, and that’s all there is to it. The mix of vanilla and pumpkin in this drink makes it all the better. And while you can get it hot or iced, hot is the way to go. Sitting outside of donkey, a chill in the air, and a warm vanilla pumpkin chai latte in your hands, is the perfect recipe for a perfect fall study session on campus.
