Fall is coming and while we love the sweater weather, fashion week lewks, and some leaf peeping, the one thing we’re not about to do is go straight pumpkin spice everything. NOPE!

If you want to be seasonal AF without being the most basic, check our PSL alternatives for fall.


Matcha Latte

Go Green for the SZN. Trade in your PSL for a Matcha Latte. Not only is it one of our fave 305 junkies Hannah Bronfman’s fave go-to morning drink, it’s chock full of health benefits as the matcha powder is made from whole green tea leaves. Matcha is naturally high in antioxidants, which helps with burning calories and builds up your immune system. It also has a similar amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee.

Also if you got to be #basic, a matcha latte is perf for getting the likes on the ‘gram.

 

Yerba Mate

With the “strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate”, yerba mate is your next bestie beverage. Yerba mate tea is a traditional South African drink made from the dried leaves of a native evergreen holly. Similar to matcha, mate is naturally high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to help build up your immune system and burns calories quicker. It also helps release a steady stream of energy, so you will not get any sugar or caffeine crash.

 

Chai Hot Cider

Why choose between chai tea and hot cider when you can get both? Get all the warm and cozy vibes with a tasty Chai Hot Cider. Also bonus - this drink goes well with a touch of booze, so go on and top yourself with some bourbon as the colder winter months roll in.

 

Champurrado

AKA Mexican hot chocolate, Champurrado is the tastiest upgrade to your basic powder hot cocoa. It’s a chocolate-based warm drink, made with either corn dough or corn flour, panela, water or milk, and can be seasoned with cinnamon, anise seed or vanilla. You can also enjoy with churros as a simple morning breakfast or sweet snack.

 

Glögg

Glögg is a Scandinavian fortified warm wine beverage that is served during the holidays. Port wine serves as the base for this drink and you can add whiskey, brandy or vodka for an extra kick. The alcohol is sweetened with sugar, heated, then cinnamon sticks, orange zests, and other spices and fruits are added for extra unique flavors.
