Top five drinks for fall

30 09 2012

Autumn officially arrived on the 22nd of this month but it is only just starting to really feel like it’s here. Along with the clouds, changing colours, and cooler temperatures fall re-ignites a craving for hot drinks! Whether you frequent the local Starbucks, a quaint quiet cafe, or you prefer a homemade beverage, with the change of season comes a change in drink preferences.

As the colours change and temperatures drop, everyone is eager for a warm cup of their favourite beverage

I have my own list of the best hot beverages for fall and where I like to get them; perhaps you have similar favourites or maybe my list will inspire you to try something new.

1. Chai Tea Latte. Where to get it: City Blends, Mission. This is by far my favourite drink right now. City Blends makes this classic drink something special that will keep you coming back. This exciting blend of sweet spices tickles your noise and dances across your tongue. Each taste is a delight.

2. London Fog. Where to get it: House of James Coffeeshop, Abbotsford. London fog equals comfort in my mind. I personally enjoy House of James because they don’t water down the beverage to much and its always thick and creamy with a perfect hint of vanilla.

Starbucks is a common place for people to warm up during the fall season

3. Double Caramel Macchiato. Where to get it: Starbucks. Whenever I need a good caffeine fix with a shot of sweetness swirled in, this drink is my pick. And of course you never have to go far to find a convenient Starbucks location.

4. Hazelnut Mocha. I don’t have a preference on where to get this drink. I like mixing it up on my own and adding sprinkles to spice it up. You can never go wrong with a perfect blending of hazelnut, chocolate and coffee!

5. Pumpkin Spice Latte. Where to get it: Starbucks. Now, the pumpkin spice latte isn’t actually one of my favourite drinks but I have to put it on the list because it is definitely a crowd favourite. Just a quick search on Twitter will reveal how much of following this drink has. For many, fall = pumpkin spice.

Twitter proves that people love the pumpkin spice latte in the fall.

What are your favourite drinks for the season?

How about… hot apple cider? Anyone else care for that?

Hot apple cider conjures memories of going apple picking this time of year in New York, and then having a cup of cider with the amazingly delicious apple cider doughnuts that I have yet to find a replacement for here. Mmm, now that tastes like fall! 😉
