It’s Sweater Weather outside and we’ve all suddenly remembered our undying affection for all things Pumpkin.
The popular spice blend sends so many of us hunting down a bright orange drink every single year, and it’s no surprise that it has a tendency to run out somewhat quickly.
So what do we do when Pumpkin Spice runs out, because it always does.
Well, an ex-Starbucks employee let me in on a ‘secret drink hack’ for when customers had to face the reality that there was no more orange syrup.
This is a drink that you can actually get at any time of year, that’s right, even in spring.
It’s really quite simple, although getting this drink does feel more rewarding if you’re a Starbucks Gold member as you can get it for much cheaper.
To get the ‘Pumpkin Spice Hack’, you need to order a latte with a few additions.
Add in Cinnamon Dolce syrup (which tastes a lot like the classic Pumpkin Spice, except a little less sweet), whipped cream (there are vegan options if you’re dairy free) and ask your barista for a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
I think this drink is actually nicer than the classic, it doesn’t have the quite frankly startling orange shade that leaves me concerned for my insides.
It has the warm spiced flavour that instantly reminds me of the colder weather and it is sweet but not overpoweringly so.
I’d honestly opt for this dupe over the classic, and with Cinnamon Dolce being one of the classic syrups available all year you don’t even have to wait for autumn to fix your craving.
