Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Even though the first day of fall doesn't start till later this month, I have already gotten into the fall spirit, because it is by far my favorite season. There is nothing about it that I dislike. The colder weather, the changing and falling of the leaves, and the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks!

If crunching on fallen leaves or wearing layers puts a smile on your face, I am guessing you also enjoy this magnificent creation! There isn't anything complicated about the drink and I believe the simplicity of the flavors of fall make it something to look forward to all summer. Milk or soy (for me it's soy), plus espresso and pumpkin spice flavoring syrup. Ya, it isn't real pumpkins they use, or even condensed pumpkin, but it still makes my taste buds ignite. 

The pumpkin flavors remind me of fall days preparing for Halloween by going pumpkin picking with the family. The pumpkin pie spices give the latte that freshly baked taste. I love topping mine with some cinnamon to add sweetness.
