Fall is that weird time where we all collectively change our eating and drinking patterns. There’s pumpkin in literally everything, and suddenly tea and hot chocolate sounds very appealing. This year, I want to try some new typical fall drinks, so I looked up some stuff on Pinterest. Here is a list of the fall drinks I want to try this year!
Are you even a Harry Potter fan if you don’t want to try butterbeer at least once? I’m not about to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, because that’s far, so a homemade recipe will have to do. I found a super simple recipe on Favorite Family Recipes, and apparently it tasted exactly like the butterbeer they sell at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I’m definitely going to try and make this fall drink this season.
Apple Pie Sangria
My birthday is coming up, so I love a good party recipe that’ll serve lots of people. Less simple to make than butterbeer, but definitely doable is this apple pie sangria I found over at Inspired By Charm. It includes all the things I love; apples, cinnamon, and wine!
Hot chocolate with marshmallows
I don’t have a recipe for this, because I usually just wing it. Whenever I make hot chocolate I like using hot milk (or a milk substitute. I might try almond milk one day), and real chocolate to make this drink. I really love those chocolate cubes on a stick that you stir in your milk until it melts. It makes making hot chocolate a lot of fun! I’m not usually a fan of whipped cream from the store, so sometimes when I’m not feeling lazy I’ll make my own and add a ton of vanilla to make it taste good. Top it with marshmallows and cacao powder and you’re done! Please don’t break my heart by trying to use water and cocoa powder, that’s just gross.:(
All the teas!
I’ll admit I’m not a super big tea drinker, but I definitely prefer it over coffee! It’s quick to make, and easy to throw in a tumbler for on the road. I love flavored teas, so this fall I’m going to try and find as many autumnal teas as possible. Anything with apples and cinnamon in it is already going to find its way to my cupboards, and I wouldn’t say no to a good chai or peppermint tea either. I saw caramel apple tea as well and I simply must try that!
I can’t leave out a good old fashioned apple cider. Especially warm apple cider is such a delicious treat when you’re out and about picking pumpkins and need a break! I found a perfectly simple recipe on Recipe Runner and I’m definitely going to make this to drink on a rainy Saturday night.
