7 Fall-Themed Drinks That Are Not Pumpkin Spice Lattes

7 Fall-Themed Drinks That Are Not Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Starbucks “hatched” the Pumpkin Spice Latte in early September this year—which means you’re probably tired of the hype surrounding the PSL. It’s been described as “fall in a cup”, but it’s really just a concoction of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice.

It’s nearly Halloween—you’re ready to mix things up and go a little crazy with your morning coffee or chai tea. So, we’re here for you. We’ve rounded up 7 fall-themed drink recipes from Pinterest that you can make at home—and none of them are pumpkin spice lattes!

Maple Pecan Latte

Have you tried Starbucks’ new fall-themed latte? The Maple Pecan Latte is sweet with hints of strong espresso and maple syrup. It’s like breakfast in a cup—but you don’t have the time to swing by your favorite coffee house before work, so you have to improvise. Make this delicious drink at home instead—all you need is a French press and 10 minutes. Here’s our favorite recipe:

If you don’t have the kitchen gadgets to get the job done—like an espresso machine—don’t worry. Amazon offers great deals on items like the Nespresso and handheld milk frothers so you can make the ultimate latte. Here’s the recipe:
