When the leaves start to change color and the weather begins to cool down, one of the best things that you can do to get into the fall mood is to make yourself a delicious warm drink. These drinks smell and taste like autumn, and best of all, they’ll keep you warm and cozy when things get a little chilly outside. Here are some amazing fall themed drinks that you can make at home.
The maple latte is a simple yet delicious drink that perfectly captures the classic fall flavor that is maple syrup. Simply stir in however much maple syrup you desire into strongly brewed coffee. From there, you can choose to add any type of milk you like, and you can kick things up a notch by adding cinnamon or any other types of spices.
Hot Apple Cider
There’s a reason why hot apple cider is a go-to classic year after year. The best part? It’s actually so simple to make. All you need to do is combine apples with cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice berries, orange peel, and lemon peel in a slow cooker. Let everything cook together for several hours and then strain out the spices and citrus peels.
Gingerbread Pumpkin Latte
The pumpkin spice latte has been inducted into the fall flavor hall of fame by now, but if you want to change things up, you can add a bit of ginger to mix things up. Mix 1 to 2 shots of espresso with a cup of steamed milk and ginger simple syrup and pumpkin pie spice to create this delicious drink.
Peppermint Hot Chocolate
Nothing says that the holidays are around the corner quite like peppermint. So why not take a cold weather classic like hot chocolate and give it a bit of a cusp of winter flavor like peppermint? The two come together and complement each other perfectly to bring you a delicious peppermint hot chocolate drink.
The London Fog is a classic drink that’s perfect for fall. It is made with Early Grey tea, frothed or steamed milk, and a bit of vanilla. You can also add your favorite type of sweetener if you prefer. This is a perfect drink for anyone who wants a bit of caffeine but does not necessarily love the taste of coffee.
