Cooler weather is finally here. (Or at least it’s supposed to be).
With the spirit of fall and holidays comes the opportunity to deviate from your typical coffee beverage and enjoy sipping on something a little more seasonal.In an effort to find the best drinks for the occasion, I visited local coffee shops in Auburn and asked them each to whip up their best holiday drink. Here’s what they gave me:
Caramel Apple Pie
A latte style drink with white mocha, caramel apple, hazelnut, cinnamon, and two shots of espresso. As far as flavor goes, this drink was phenomenal; the perfect combination of fruit and spice.
A unique combination of apple cider and chai, dusted with cinnamon. The only drink on the list without a milky base, this drink is served piping hot and will soothe the sorest of throats.
A creamier option, this drink swirls the flavors of honey, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon into a delectable haze.
Think s’mores around a campfire — without the sticky marshmallows, melting chocolate, and crumbly graham crackers. This indulgent drink features vanilla, dark chocolate, and toasted marshmallow with two shots of espresso.
Any of these sound especially good to you? Know of any that I'm missing? Comment below or contact us on social media @AuburnCampusRec. And as always,
Be well, Auburn.
