5 Starbucks Spins to Spice up your Fall Favorites

Calling all coffee fans!

Tis the season to introduce you to the reintroduced flavors of Fall. I have been a barista for Starbucks for over a year and a half and love the company’s innovative activity. Every year, new holiday surprises are highly anticipated to all baristas and customers. Because the weather has shifted MAJORLY in the PNW, I thought I would share some of my favorite ways to customize Fall favorites this season!

1. Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte

If you enjoy a spicy tinge on the tip of your tongue, this fall favorite combines the spice of chai tea concentrate with the sweetness of pumpkin spice syrup to create the perfect “fall-in-a-cup” sensation.

What to order: A Chai Tea Latte with pumpkin sauce, whipped cream, and pumpkin spice topping!

2. Salted Caramel White Chocolate Mocha

Though sweet, the salted caramel white mocha can take away some of the “bitterness” tasted in the dark chocolate of Starbucks Mocha sauce. White mocha is a great substitute in any form of coffee to make it a bit sweeter, plus you still get the salt that is a fan favorite at this time of the year!

What to order: A Salted Caramel Mocha with white chocolate sauce instead of mocha sauce!

3. Caramel Apple Spice

Many might recognize this beverage from years ago, however, Caramel Apple Spice does not appear on the Starbucks menu anymore. This beverage adds a sweet cinnamon syrup to steamed apple juice to mix up a twisted apple cider.

What to order: Steamed apple juice with cinnamon dolce syrup, whipped cream, and caramel drizzle!

4. Chai Tea Fusion 

The Chai Fusion was also a fan favorite on the menu many years ago. This beverage contains no dairy product and can add a sour but scrumptious spin on your typical chai tea latte!

What to order: A Chai Tea Latte with steamed apple juice instead of water!

5. Pumpkin Spice Latte with Almond Milk

Starbucks has almond milk! Customer have been waiting years for almond milk that can be substituted into any beverage. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are not only the #1 most ordered beverage in the Fall time, they are also the most fun to substitute and put your own spin on.

What to order: A Pumpkin Spice Latte with almond milk instead of two percent milk (whipped cream optional)!

Happy Sippin’!
