PSL is Here: Fall Drinks You Must Try at Starbucks

As autumn rolls around again this year, we are all dusting off our sweaters and scarves, craving the gloomy weather that keeps us inside. Unfortunately, the only thing taking a hiatus this season is our motivation. Responsibilities like school and work will not allow us to curl up under a blanket in this cold weather, so we need to find something to keep us focused and warm; something that still feels like fall. Luckily, Starbucks offers an array of warm, tasty, and sweet beverages that hit the spot.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

The Pumpkin Spice Latte is a classic. PSL only comes around once a year; it’s like Christmas! But seriously, this is the ultimate “Fall” drink. If you’re looking to taste sugar, spice, and all things nice, be sure to get your fix before the season ends.  

Snickerdoodle Latte

This mixture of Cinnamon Dolce and White Mocha flavorings creates a sweet, chocolaty flavor, with just a hint of spice. Just ask your barista to top it off with some whipped cream and cinnamon dolce sprinkles, and you’ll get that rainy day off to a good start.

The Cinderella Latte

This Starbucks secret menu drink was created by a passionate Disney fan who worked as a Starbucks Barista and wanted to incorporate some of that magic into her drinks. This mix of White Mocha and Pumpkin Spice represents the Princess’ enchanted horse-drawn carriage. Be sure to give it a try to taste some of that delicious magic!

Pumpkin Spice Chai

Do you love your chai tea lattes? Add a pinch of pumpkin in there for an extra spicy taste. There is no coffee in this drink, but there will be plenty of flavor to keep you interested.

Pumpkin Cream Cold Foam Cold Brew

This drink is quite the mouthful, and it isn’t warm. But it will definitely give you a kick with the amount of caffeine it contains. The sweet-subtle pumpkin flavor in the foam is the perfect preface to the smooth cold brew underneath. Be sure to stop in and order this when you’re in need of a fall-pick-me-up.

MSO Brewfest
If you live in Missoula, and enjoy drinking beer, then I am sure that you are fully aware of what has happened in the last 10 years, but first, go back in time to 1986. At this time, Missoula Brewing had been out of business for over 20 years, and Americanized pilsners like Ranier dominated the market. In 1987, German brewmaster Jürgen Knö¨ller opened up Bayern Brewing, and the local craft beer industry had once again been established in Missoula. Five years after Bayern’s opening, Jürgen and a few other local business owners started an annual tradition that still holds today. The annual Garden City Brewfest had begun, and craft brew lovers have flocked to Caras Park in downtown Missoula for the event ever since.

Now, look back to just ten years ago. Believe it or not, there were only three breweries in Missoula. In the past 10 years, the love for craft beer has blown up to ridiculous proportions, and the greater Missoula area is soon to be home to over 10 breweries!

When you live in a city like Missoula, which is in a state that takes 2nd in the nation for breweries per capita, one brewfest is simply not enough. The first brewfest of 2016 was the Winter Brewfest, which was on February, 19th but there are still five more to come!

Remember, drink responsibly!
