Happy September! We’ve finally made it to autumn, and you know what that means- pumpkins, apples, and endless cups of tea. Whether you’re looking to curl up with a hot mug of Spiced Apple Tea Latte, or find something unique for your harvest parties, I’ve got you covered. I scoured the web for the best in festive fall beverages, so you’re sure to find your perfect match.

Apple Cider Mimosas

Delish has got you covered with this one! They’ve even have a video to follow along if you’re a visual learner. In five minutes, you can get yourself into the spirit of the season with a sugar and ground cinnamon-rimmed drink made with apple cider and a bottle of something bubbly. Don’t forget an apple slice for the garnish!

London Fog Tea Latte

I’ve recently discovered Target’s London Fog Tea Latte mix for $3. For those on a budget, I highly recommend! It’s simple to mix, and is right on the money in terms of taste. If you’ve got a milk frother at home (I bought mine at Target for $8), you can dress it up even more.

However, if you’re looking to get fancy at the tea and coffee bar this morning, I recommend heading over to The Healthy Maven’s blog and following along. You’re going to need earl grey tea, milk, vanilla extract, and honey for this one, but it’ll be worth it!

Add a taste of tequila to Thanksgiving this year! The Soccer Mom Blog has the cutest idea for a festive orange-colored drink with salted rims, apple, and cinnamon sticks for garnish. Raid your shelves for apple cider, pear juice, gold tequila, Grand Mariner, salt, lime, and cinnamon sticks, and follow along with the blog below to start sippin’.

Apple Pie Sangria

Here, we’ve got a recipe from Inspired by Charm. Get out your shopping list, because you’re going to need a few things for this one: green apple, red apple, pear, orange, Pinot Grigio, salted caramel, apple cider, apple pie simply syrup (recipe provided!), and cinnamon sticks. Somehow, I think it’ll be worth the hassle!

This drink from Fun and Food Café is a simple recipe you can make with some basic seasonal ingredients. This creamy cocktail features cream liquer, half and half, pumpkin pie spice, orange food coloring, and orange sugared-rims. The star of the show? Kahlua Pumpkin Spice!
