As fall approaches, the days get a little shorter and the nights get a little chillier. The trees will soon start to change colors, and before you know it, you'll be absentmindedly crunching leaves on the ground every time you step outside. Even if weather isn't your first indicator of the changing seasons, you'll notice it soon enough.
While pumpkin-scented things and autumn decor have already hit the stores, classic fall-inspired food and drinks have not yet made their annual debut. Starbucks lovers can expect the beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte to make its mark in the fall alongside its partner, the Salted Caramel Mocha. Other coffee chains carry fall beverages as well, but without the grandeur of the Starbucks classic.
Coffee definitely isn't the only option for fall beverages. Brewing companies often sell something seasonal, and you can find a variety of autumn flavors in just about any drink or liquor you can think of. When all else fails, Pinterest will lead you to a new recipe that you may just fall in love with (pun totally intended).
You can tell a lot about a person by what they drink. Especially when it comes to specialty beverages and seasonal flair, there's a giveaway in every drink. If you've ever wondered what your signature fall drink says about you, take a look below.
1. Hot Chocolate
You're an old soul at heart who appreciates the little things in life. While you're sweet and patient, you have some heat when you need it. You're totally lovable, and your family and friends know it.
2. Pumpkin Spice Latte
You make "basic" a compliment. While you love the trends and what's hot, you also have a strong sense of self that makes it impossible to confuse you with anyone else. You have a positive outlook on life, and aren't afraid to do what makes you happy.
3. Salted Caramel Mocha
You like the classics with a little bit of a twist. You can be sweet and salty. In the end, you're doing what you want, and you really don't care about the haters as long as they stay out of your way.
4. Pumpkin Spice Baileys
You're always learning and growing as a person. You long for adventure, but in the past, you may have let some hesitation get in your way. While you're ready for the next chapter of your life, you proceed with caution to avoid any mistakes.
5. Black Coffee
Sometimes you can come off as being a bit intense, but you're just a chick who knows exactly what she wants. Those who appreciate your deep passion about life in general love you with loyalty unlike any other. While your mood can vary, you're normally pretty tough to intimidate.
6. Apple Cider
You're another old soul who loves tradition. You all about puzzles and having deep conversations, but you're just as happy laughing with a friend or a lover. While you may have a guard up at times, your heart is big and welcoming to anyone who needs a friend.
7. Chai Tea Latte
Your connection with the earth and its energies is unlike any other. You strive for greater understanding of the universe and will do whatever it takes to find the answers you seek. When wanderlust hits, you give in without a fear in the world.
8. Pumpkin Spice Bourbon
You're an adventurous soul who brings a feeling of home wherever you go. Friends and new acquaintances instantly feel comfortable around you and love hearing about your spontaneous experiences. You're typically the storyteller of the group and are confident about your decisions.
9. Coffee With Pumpkin Spice Creamer
You do whatever you can to make every day a special one. Whether you switch up your morning routine, or take a different route home from work, you always have a way to give yourself (and others) a pick me up when needed. Life can be stressful, but you won't let anything get in your way.
10. Apple Cider Mimosas
You're a lover of all things luxurious, whether or not you can afford them. You appreciate the hustle, and know that in order to achieve great things in life, you have to give it your all. You're also a complete fall queen, and you totally know it.
