  2. Three Hot Fall Drinks Recipe

Sometimes seeing the steam wafting up from a hot beverage is almost as satisfying as the drink itself! The warmth a drink offers is like wrapping yourself in a fleece blanket and leaves you always wanting more. These are three of my favorite fall go-to drinks that I always have the ingredients for. Whenever I’m in the mood for something hot or if good friends stop over, I whip up one of these drinks!

Steamers are so easy, and many times I forget to make them. But once I do, I can’t get enough!

Make sure to grab my recipe for pumpkin butter recipe to make with the pumpkin latte.

Having drinks at a coffee shop never gets old, but sometimes preparing them at home is rewarding and even more delicious! Try these, make your own versions, and impress your guests with your barista talents!

No ratings yet
Cool fall weather means unleashing warm cozy drinks to celebrate the season. This recipe features a latte, a cider, and a tea, giving a wide variety of toasty options. Each one brings an element of autumn that coordinates with the harvest season.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 3 servings


For the spiced apple cider

  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 3 whole allspice berries
  • 1 2-inch piece cinnamon (broken in two)
  • 1 tsp sugar

For the Earl Grey steamer

  • 1 cup scalded milk
  • 1 Earl Grey teabag
  • 2 oz English toffee syrup flavoring (or vanilla flavor)

For the pumpkin latte

  • 1 cup heated and frothed milk
  • 1 shot espresso
  • 2-3 tbsp pumpkin butter


For the spiced apple cider

  • Place all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer on the stove. Let simmer for five minutes to release the spice flavors. Strain into cup and garnish with an apple crisp!
  • To make the apple crisps, slice one apple thinly (a mandolin works best for really thin slices). Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle both sides with a little sugar and cinnamon and place in a 225°F oven for 45-60 minutes. Turn slices over and continue baking for an additional 45-60 minutes.
  • Let cool and you will have perfect apple chips to garnish this drink or enjoy as a snack!

For the Earl Grey steamer

  • Scald milk and add the teabag. Let steep for five minutes.
  • Remove teabag, squeezing out any excess tea into the milk.
  • Add flavored syrup for sweetness and flavor.

For the pumpkin latte

  • Heat and froth milk. Using a small at-home frother work great.
  • Add espresso and pumpkin butter to mug and stir.
  • Pour on frothed milk, finishing with a layer of foam.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon to garnish!
