5 Fall Drinks to Try at Starbucks


I post different outfits every day, so I thought it would be fun to do something really different today! The fall is my favorite time to drink hot drinks... coffee, cider, hot chocolate, you name it. There's something so comforting about curling up with a warm cup when it's cold outside. Today I thought I'd share five different fall drinks to try at Starbucks. I've taste-tested all of these and they are tried-and-true favorites!

1. Marble Mocha Macchiato 
This is hands-down my favorite coffee drink at Starbucks, and if you've been following my blog for long, you've probably heard me talk about it. It's a twist on the Caramel Macchiato (but WAY better, in my opinion!). This drink has white mocha on the bottom of the cup, steamed milk and a shot of espresso and then is drizzled with mocha on top. Although it's not on the "official" menu at Starbucks, most baristas know how to make it. Try it with skim milk to save some calories! 

2. Caramel Apple Spice
The Caramel Apple Spice is my go-to drink in the fall when I want something warm but don't want any caffeine. This isn't your regular apple cider - it has steamed, freshly pressed apple juice and cinnamon syrup and is topped with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle. You don't even know how good this is until you taste it - it's fall in a cup!

3. Caramel Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino
Sometimes in the fall, you still get the craving for a cold drink. This drink tastes EXACTLY like pumpkin pie to me and it's sooo good! Ask for a Caramel Frappuccino with a pump of pumpkin (1 pump for tall, 2-3 for venti). And make sure you get whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices on top! I actually don't love the PSL, but I do love this one.

4. Zebra Hot Chocolate
Sometimes you just can't beat hot chocolate. The Zebra Hot Chocolate is a really fun take on the regular version - order a hot chocolate with half white chocolate and half regular chocolate. It's yummier than hot chocolate and not as sweet as a white mocha. This one is also great for kids!

5. Pumpkin Chai Latte 
For chai tea lovers, this one is for you! Ask for a Chai Latte with 2-3 pumps of pumpkin and topped with whipped cream and sea salt topping. For a little extra flavor try adding a pump of mocha syrup or caramel syrup - both go amazing with the pumpkin chai flavor!

  9. Hi Caitlin!

    I am really loving the new Chile Mocha with a pump of hazelnut and skim milk! It's a bit sweet, spicy, and chocolately - SO good! I do have a question - what is the base drink for the Caramel Apple Spice? I would love to try it, but I'm not sure exactly how to order it, so I would love a little more info on that!

  16. I don't drink dairy milk, so I'm so glad that Starbucks has many vegan drink options! I've been loving a Soy Mocha Latte and want to try a hazelnut latte next. x

  17. The caramel apple spice is one of my favorites! Also, I thought I would let you know your blog is opening weird for me through bloglovin and if I go directly to it. Instead of opening as a full web page, it seems like it is opening with a mobile design. It only fills half of the width of the window. What is normally over on the right hand side (like your Instagrams and Archives) are all under the comment section and I see the wrenches up by the header which show up where you can edit it if it is your blog. Just thought I would let you know in case you needed to reach out to your designer or something!

  22. My go-to is an iced black coffee or cold brew, so I typically avoid sugary drinks (unless they're milkshakes... duh), but I'll admit that the marble mocha macchiato and the caramel apple spice sound really good. Might have to try....

  28. To save on the calories, I usually get a latte with a coconut milk and a pump of pumpkin spice and sprinkle of cinnamon! It's just enough flavor without all of the additional sugar!
