Oh Boy! It’s finally fall. Beautiful leaves changing colors and the weather finally getting mild. A certain sleepiness falls over the earth.
All the yummy fall food and treats are coming out at all the restaurants and stores. Pumpkin pancakes, popcorn balls, apple pie alamode, candy corn, Oh my goodness all the tempting diet killers. (Who wants to diet at this time of year anyway?)
Every Friday is coffee day in my house for the girls and me. There is one thing as a coffee lover that I wait all year for and mourn the loss of when they run out in the spring. One marvelously sweet heavenly hot yummy beverage I cannot wait to taste.
Come August I become giddy with anticipation awaiting my most favorite fall coffee drink ever. I dream of it like Ralphie dreamt of his Red Ryder carbine action 200 shot range model air rifle. My favorite Barista knows the question is coming.”Where is the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte?”
The Pumpkin Spice Latte is like drinking pure liquid pumpkin pie goodness. The first sip of the season, I stand there in the store holding my cup like a child with a caramel apple. I close my eyes smell the hot aromatic libation and smile. Then the taste hits my tongue and like a fine wine, I gently swish it around my mouth.
This has to be the best coffee ever and it only comes once a year. It makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. Just the thought of it makes me smile. If I had to suggest one drink to try this fall it would definitely be the Pumpkin Spice latte at Starbucks.
While you’re at it add a pumpkin scone to go with it. Your taste buds will thank you!
