It’s mid-September, which means that Halloween decorations are filling the aisles of all the stores, scarves and boots are rotating to the front of our closets, and we’re craving drinks that make us feel all warm and cozy … and not necessarily the Pumpkin Spice Latte (no offense, PSL).
Even though it’s still a not-so-autumnal 90 degrees most days in Houston, that’s what air conditioning is for. So pile on your scarves, kick up your booted feet and sip a festive fall beverage — we asked members of our #UHBauer Social Media Team what their favorite fall drinks are, and here’s what they recommend.
Kayla Griffiths, marketing junior
“My drink of choice is a honey blossom iced latte from Southside! It’s something different that you cannot find at Starbucks, yet it gives you all the caffeine you need to get through the day!”
Brianna TenBrink, marketing & management junior
“When I’m not drinking water, I’m drinking the Mighty Mango Naked Smoothie. It is refreshing, and healthier, than your average juice.”
Anna Purcell, marketing & management senior
“On a hot fall day in Texas, nothing beats an Iced Chai Latte with one pump of mocha! This spicy, cool drink has just a hint of chocolate and is perfect for those craving a fall drink in the heat.”
Sophia Nguyen, MIS sophomore
“If the PSL was never your fall go-to, pick up a classic vanilla latte — you can never go wrong! And since we all know that Texas autumns start way later than most, keep ‘em iced and don’t forget an extra shot of espresso!”
Holly Frank, marketing sophomore
“My go-to drink is a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, with a shot or two of espresso!”
