Green Tea Latte

Green tea lattes aren't made with green tea. Instead they are made with matcha, a fine green tea powder made from shade grown tealeaves.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

This is one of the 'bucks' most popular drink offerings. Recent "there's no pumpkin in my latte" controversy was short lived, and fans flocked for a gulp of the fall-friendly PSL as early as August. Make your own at home with some pumpkin pie spice and fortified pumpkin simple syrup that will last in the fridge for three weeks.

DIY Mocha Frappuccino

A blender, milk, coffee, and ice are all you need to create the perfect frothy Frappuccino at home. The key here is making sure all the elements — including the coffee — are cold, or at least room temperature. Otherwise, the ice will melt and you will just have watered-down lukewarm coffee.

Peppermint Mocha Latte

A peppermint mocha latte is just minty hot chocolate with the addition of espresso. You can get fancy and garnish yours with candy canes and the like, but this tastes just fine without all that fuss. Make it even easier on yourself by using mint-flavored hot chocolate instead of trying to get the peppermint extract/cocoa ratio right.
