What’s with the latte obsession, anyway?

Break out your scarves and say goodbye to swimsuit season, fall is finally here. Who’s ready to sip on some mulled cider and hot chocolate?

Though warm drinks are delicious and perfect to enjoy while snuggling by a fire, sometimes the transition from hot to cold weather can leave you in a post-summer slump.

Luckily, there’s one drink flavor that has the ability to get everyone excited for the fall: pumpkin spice.

Over time, pumpkin spice has become a definitive (and delicious) marker of fall. Not everyone knows this, but we have Starbucks to thank for that. Starbucks was the first company to release a pumpkin spice flavored drink that is available exclusively throughout the fall, therefore, the pumpkin spice latte gets all of the credit.

Everyone loves a good PSL every once and a while, but this isn’t the only way you can drink down the goodness that is pumpkin spice. In fact, there are tons of ways to get in your daily dosage!

Here are three other ways to enjoy pumpkin spice as a drink:
