5 Drinks You’ll Love for Fall

October 23, 2019 3 min read 20 Comments

Is it even fall, if you haven’t had your quintessential seasonal drink?

A pinch of spice here, a few fun toppings there, and a mug that screams Y.O.U. ⁠—  you’re on your way to #fallgoals.

Here are 5 of my favorite homemade fall drink recipes from some of my favorite food bloggers!

PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE | RECIPE BY INSPIRED TASTE

Now I’m not the biggest PSL fan, but this recipe is by far one of the best PSL’s I’ve had (sorry Starbucks 🤷). It has the perfect ratio of pumpkin to coffee so it’s not overpowering with pumpkin flavor and it doesn’t taste artificial.

Recommendations

  • Use non-dairy or skim milk if you want fewer calories or are lactose intolerant
  • Same with the sugar, substitute or use raw sugar for a healthier alternative

PEPPERMINT HOT CHOCOLATE | RECIPE BY THE COOKIE ROOKIE

What is it with me making drinks I’m not a fan of? Like the PSL, I’m not a hot chocolate person but this recipe takes you back to the days when a caring soul (a waiter, friend or family) made you a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day and it was just what you needed.

Recommendations

  • This recipe does call for a crockpot/slow cooker, but if you don’t have one, a regular pot would work just as well
  • Swap out the heavy cream and milk for non-dairy, light, or skim alternatives
  • Not a fan of peppermint, try a hint of eggnog.  And yep, you can even find it lactose-free in the dairy section of most markets!

APPLE CIDER PUNCH | RECIPE BY FOOD NETWORK CANADA

I’m a sucker for all things apple year-round, but during fall it kicks up a couple of notches. This punch blends the comfort of apple cider with a fresh and fruity flavor so you’re left wanting more.

Recommendations

  • Swap out the rum for some sprite if you’d prefer something non-alcoholic or are under 21
  • A dash of nutmeg or cinnamon always adds depth of flavor to cider

CHAI LATTE | RECIPE BY MY DARLING VEGAN

I’m. In. Love. With. Chai. Lattes!!! Seriously, it’s an addiction at this point and this recipe further fuels it because now I can make it on my own instead of hunting down the perfect cup; cause I’m a tad picky bout’ my Chai Latte.  I’ve even considered opening an artisan coffee shop just so I can have limitless, okay, copious amounts on call… 24/7. But back to the recipe, it’s a perfect blend of warmth and spice and all-around goodness.

Recommendations

  • This recipe does call for a milk frother or french press but if you don’t have either, heating the milk in a small saucepan and whisking vigorously works just as well.

BUTTERBERR FROM HARRY POTTER | RECIPE BY I HEART NAPTIME

As someone who hasn’t been to Universal Orlando yet, I can’t vouch for whether this tastes like the butterbeer served at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. But I will say, my friends who have been say this recipe is a stone-cold ringer.  So if you want to try butterbeer without heading to Universal Orlando, this is your lucky day!

Recommendations

  • I found that both Stewart’s and MUG’s brand of cream soda worked the best and really kicked up the flavor

      The cider is heavenly! And if you have the time/ingredients the chai is fabulous too!

  • Nicole Booz October 23, 2019 at 6:04 pm

    Apple cider punch sounds so good! I’ve never had that before. I love gingerbread lattes in the fall – they’re my favorite!

    • annaelleliz October 24, 2019 at 2:03 pm

      It’s the best! Oh, I’ll have to try a gingerbread latte, I never had that but it sounds like Christmas in a cup 🎅.
