Say good-bye to watermelon juices and unicorn frappuccinos and hello to all things pumpkin spice. The temperatures have officially dipped and what better way to celebrate the leaves changing colours than sipping a cup of seasonal classics. A PSL is no doubt the must-have for the season, but if you’re looking for more, we have a lineup of fall-inspired beverages to satisfy your taste buds. From your morning pick-me-up to after-hours celebration, here are five drinks to add to your must-try list. 

The OG pumpkin spice latte is back for a limited time only. Luckily this year, Starbucks is expanding its once coffee-only member club to tea lovers now with its new tea latte version. Cue the angel music.

With the cold chill in the air, Earl’s house special, Charred Jalapeño Margarita, is the perfect way to bring a little heat to your palette. Note: Take advantage of the restaurant’s Margarita Mondays for ah-mazing promos.

​David’s Tea
Walking into David’s Tea is like walking into a candy shop: the choices are endless, especially for fall. And better yet, they're sans the extra calories. This season, we suggest grabbing a pack of Wild Strawberry herbal tea or Honeycrisp Apple green tea, because nothing says fall classic like filling the house with the fruity aromas of strawberries and apples.

Thanks to Chatime, we can now have our fave seasonal sweets in drinkable form. Warm the heart (and soul) with the Taiwanese tea company’s three new fall-inspired teas: MMMaple Milk Tea, Salted Caramel Yum Milk Tea, and Oh (Ginger) Snap! Milk Tea. Available in hot or cold, pair it with your favourite topping such as: pearl, coconut jelly, or aloe jelly. Yum!

Long day at the office and looking for a way to unwind? Pay homage to Mad Men’s Don Draper and ask for Moxie’s twist on the classic Old Fashioned. #HappyHour
