fall drinks you should order instead of a pumpkin spice latte

Pumpkin is everywhere during autumn. And you may or may not be obsessed with drinking pumpkin spice lattes.

But as much as you look forward to having a pumpkin spice latte, what about other fall-time drinks?

I bet if you tried other drinks, you might end up with a new favourite or two! There are plenty of drinks to make and get while you’re out, so why not branch out and try a few!

Below are fall drinks that you’ll take one sip of and be hooked! Autumn will never be the same for you after adding these delectable drinks to your fall menu.

1. Asian Pear Sparkler

Take a fall time party or get together up a notch by making Asian pear sparklers. This fruity drink is perfect for fall because it infuses ginger, rosemary, and nutmeg together. Nutmeg is one of fall’s most notable spices, after all.

For this drink, Asian pear juice is the main ingredient, which you can buy or make your own by using a juicer. You’ll also need soda to whip up this drink. With soda, Asian pear juice, and a few other ingredients, you have a drink that’s fitting for any get-together.

It sure is a unique drink you must savour! Even though the soda is sweet, after it hits your taste buds, you’ll get to enjoy the spices and herbs. And they’re wonderful tasting! 

2. Light Roast Coffee

Drink coffee with natural flavours this fall and enjoy a sweeter and less bitter taste. A light roast coffee, also known as a blonde roast, is an excellent way to enjoy coffee packed with tons of flavour.

Light roast beans aren’t processed as long as dark roast beans, so they retain more flavour. So the next time you’re at your favourite coffee shop, try light roast coffee.

After that, you may want to make light roast coffee with your own beans! Fall is a wonderful time to make different drinks, coffee included!

3. Candy Corn Punch

If you can’t get enough candy corn this time of year, then you’ll love making candy corn punch! This drink only has three ingredients, so it’s super easy to make.

To make this Halloween-inspired drink, you’ll need pineapple, pineapple juice, and orange soda. Oh, and you’ll also need clear plastic or glass cups or mugs so you can enjoy this Halloween drink to the fullest!

First, pour in your pineapple juice and add some pineapple (fill 1/3rd of the cup). Then, finish it off with orange soda, whipped cream, and, of course, candy corn!

This is a fun drink that kids will never tire of, and adults will enjoy its taste and appearance too!

4. Apple Cider Floats

You can’t experience fall entirely until you’ve had apple cider. But why not take your apple cider up a notch by making apple cider floats?

To make an apple cider float, you’ll need both traditional apple cider and sparkling apple cider. A rootbeer float has sparkling bubbles from the soda. So for an apple cider float, having sparkling apple cider works well. You still get to experience a float but apple cider style!

After combining your apple cider with sparkling apple cider, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum! Top it off with whipped cream, cinnamon, and caramel sauce, and you’ll have it made!

5. White Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate is yummy, and white-hot chocolate is even better! So if you love white chocolate, then you’ll appreciate drinking a cup of white hot chocolate on a chilly autumn day.

Sure, you can get some at Starbucks or another coffee shop, but why not make your own?

With a bit of milk, vanilla extract, and white chocolate, you can make some delicious hot chocolate.

So, when it’s cold outside, put your kitchen to good use and produce a warm drink. Making white hot chocolate is a fun autumn activity you can’t pass up!


Autumn is full of delicious snacks like pumpkin pie, apple pie, apple fritters, and more. And, of course, let’s not forget about the many drinks like pumpkin spice latte.

But instead of sticking to a pumpkin spice latte, try something new. You won’t regret it!

I hope the above ideas and recipes pique your interest.

These drinks are ideal to pair with an entertaining fall activity, too. For example, white hot chocolate tastes wonderful while watching a favourite movie. And apple cider floats are fantastic to enjoy in your backyard on a beautiful autumn day.

Halloween, Thanksgiving, and other holidays are on their way. So now’s the time to drink something flavorful and enjoy!
