There are three things I love this time of year: pumpkins, Starbucks, and quirky names for seemingly simple things. I worked as a Barista for two years when I was in high school, and went through almost 3 seasons of holiday drinks. During this time, I took advantage of the special flavors and created my own special holiday drinks. Be sure to give one of these a try next time you go to Starbucks. The best thing is these drinks can be enjoyed hot or iced!
Order a Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte. Ask for only 2 pumps of Pumpkin and add 2 pumps of White Mocha. Ask for whipped cream and ½ a pump of vanilla on top of the whipped cream. Can be ordered iced as well.
Chillin in a Pumpkin Patch
Order a Iced Grande Pumpkin Spice Latte, then add 2 pumps of Caramel Syrup, 1 pump of Chai, then have it topped with whipped cream, pumpkin powder and caramel drizzle.
Order a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino. Ask for only 2 pumps of Pumpkin and add on a pump each of toffee nut sauce, caramel syrup and hazelnut syrup. Top it off with whipped cream and caramel drizzle.
These drinks can definitely cure seasonal depression, and get you into the fall and winter holiday spirit. I hope you enjoy them!
