The cinnamon dolce latte is a twist on Starbucks’ signature espresso roast. The blend uses freshly steamed milk alongside a cinnamon dolce flavored syrup for a smooth and sweet treat. But the goodness doesn’t stop there. On top of two shots of espresso, this latte finishes the magic by adding whipped cream and a special cinnamon dolce sprinkles topping. I like to customize this drink by switching out the two percent milk for oat milk and asking for it extra hot. 


Chai Crème Frappuccino

The frappuccino is a trademark of the Starbucks name and is a genius combination of a frappe and a cappuccino. If you’re looking for a cold, sweet treat to brighten your day, you can’t go wrong with the chai creme frappuccino. This blended beverage is much simpler than you would imagine. It mixes up Starbucks spicy chai tea with ice and the milk of your choice to create a light and fluffy drink. The whipped cream on top would make the perfect finisher if it wasn’t for that necessary sprinkle of cinnamon. I love this blend when I’m not in the mood for coffee and don’t want to add a ton of caffeine to my hectic day. 


Chai Tea Latte

Have you ever heard of a tea latte? If you’re a fan of chai tea, then this is a different way to serve up the drink that you simply have to try. Starbucks chai tea latte takes the classic tea flavor and turns it into a smooth, creamy drink that’s ideal for any cold, dreary day. It adds steamed milk and foam to the flavors of clove, cinnamon, and spices, balancing the sweet with the spicy. It feels like a hug in a mug if you ask me. It’s one of my favorite things to order when the winter blues are especially hard. 


Pumpkin Spice Latte

The pumpkin spice latte – lovingly called the PSL by its fans – is a famous and somewhat infamous choice at Starbucks. Since this drink is seasonal, we only get to enjoy it at certain times of the year. For many, it’s the fall drink of choice. Get this latte hot or cold, and you can expect four pumps of Starbucks pumpkin sauce, steam milk, milk foam, whipped cream, and pumpkin spice topping. With two shots of espresso, the PSL is the best way to start your day. You can bet that I’ll be the first one in line on the day they bring PSL back to the menu – even if it’s still 90 degrees outside. I’m a sucker for pumpkin flavor, cinnamon, and nutmeg wrapped up in one cup.

Caramel Apple Spice

Some autumn enthusiasts argue that apple is just as crucial a fall flavor as the pumpkin. Pumpkin tends to steal the spotlight, but I love fresh apple-anything during the fall months. And the caramel apple spice is an excellent alternative to coffee. This drink has a tea base. It is brought to life with several pumps of the store’s cinnamon dolce syrup. And what’s a Starbucks drink without a gorgeous topping? The caramel apple spice greets you with whipped cream and a drizzle of delicious caramel. The sweetness of this cinnamon drink can be adjusted, as you can also go for light or extra caramel drizzle. I love opting for the latter when I’m in the mood for something warm and sweet on a cold day. 


Cinnamon Dolce Crème

Let me be honest about this drink. It’s not coffee, and it’s not tea. The cinnamon dolce creme’s sole purpose is to be sweet, tasty, and indulgent. But if there’s no tea or coffee, what’s actually in it? The base of this drink is freshly steamed milk of your choice, whether that’s almond milk or whole milk. Mixed in is Starbucks cinnamon dolce syrup, which gives the hot milk a spicy-sweet flavor. Top it off with whipped cream and a cinnamon dolce topping, and there you have it. Yes, it’s basically heated milk with flavoring, but it’s quite amazing. Don’t knock it ‘til you try it. 


Chai Tea

Sometimes, all you need to satisfy your cinnamon craving is a simple chai tea. At Starbucks, you can get their black tea infused with the classic chai spices: cinnamon, clove, and more – all in perfect proportion. Starbucks adds steamed milk and foam to its chai tea, making it warm, smooth, and cozy. Get it in any size and customize it how you like. Add extra chai tea, change the milk, or get a little crazy by adding some whipped cream. Because what Starbucks drink isn’t good topped with whipped cream?  


Chestnut Praline Crème Frappuccino Blended Beverage

Like our beloved PSL, any chestnut praline drink from Starbucks is a seasonal option. This festive drink comes out with the rest of the store’s holiday line of beverages, meaning we have to wait all year for it to come back. But when it re-enters that menu, it becomes clear that it was worth the wait. The chestnut praline creme frappuccino blended beverage is a mouthful – in more ways than one. This frappuccino is a cold blend of milk and ice sprinkled with hints of cinnamon, caramelized chestnuts, praline, and other holiday spices. And – of course – it wouldn’t be complete with a big dollop of whipped cream and a nice sprinkle of spice pralines to give it that extra holiday touch.

Cold brew is always a fantastic choice for someone who loves iced coffee but hates when the ice waters down the drink. And this seasonal favorite gives you all the caffeine with the perfect touch of fall flavor. The pumpkin cream cold brew is an excellent alternative to the PSL. It uses Starbucks’ signature cold brew alongside some sweet vanilla syrup. For that cinnamon and pumpkin taste, enjoy the pumpkin cream cold foam and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice on top. It’s a refreshing cold drink that still gives you plenty of pumpkin and cinnamon for your day.

Are you really surprised to see yet another pumpkin drink on this list? After all, Starbucks is the king of all things pumpkin, and you can’t have pumpkin without some sweet, sweet cinnamon. The pumpkin spice frappuccino offers a cool and refreshing way to enjoy the popular seasonal flavor. This drink takes delicious Starbucks coffee and blends it with milk, ice, and the store’s signature pumpkin sauce. To top it off, I just have to have my swirl of whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. It’s a cold cinnamon treat for those unseasonably warm fall days. 


Apple Crisp Macchiato

I know; I rave a lot about pumpkin spice for the fall, but I’m also a massive fan of all things apple. From apple cider to apple pie, I’m as crazy for this fruit as I am for the orange gourd. And when I’m not in the mood for PSL, my go-to at Starbucks in the fall is their apple crisp macchiato. The apple crisp macchiato features layers of flavor that blend oh so well. It has apple, cinnamon, oats, and brown sugar jammed into one delicious drink. Delicious hot or cold, the base of this drink is Starbucks blonde espresso. The oat milk is smooth and creamy, and the whole thing gets topped with a spiced apple drizzle. It’s fall in a cup, and I couldn’t love it more. 


Spiced Root Beer

Starbucks spiced root beer isn’t necessarily a secret menu item, but it’s one that not a lot of people know about. And it makes sense; after all, the company is known for its coffee drinks, not soda. Their spiced root beer is one of the store’s Fizzio hand-crafted sodas. It’s a bubbly drink with unique flavors – cold and refreshing for all. In addition, it’s more than just your average root beer. It pairs the classic root beer flavor with spices, including nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and star anise. If you’re thirsty but tired of the same old fountain options from fast food restaurants, this is a great cinnamon drink to try.

Starbucks iced cinnamon coffee is a great choice if you’re having a serious cinnamon craving. As the only added flavor to this drink, it takes the stage and owns the spotlight. What makes Starbucks iced cinnamon coffee special is that it uses sweetened condensed milk. When you add this to their signature coffee blend, you already get a thick, creamy, and sweet treat. But for an added boost of flavor, add some cinnamon. When blended up in one cohesive drink, you get a spicy-sweet iced coffee that’s sure to become a new favorite.

Sometimes you have a hankering for pumpkin spice, but you don’t need the extra caffeine, or you’re just not in the mood for coffee. None of us should be surprised to hear that Starbucks has the perfect solution for this craving.  That solution is the pumpkin spice creme. We’ve already talked about what a creme drink is from Starbucks. It’s steamed milk with the flavoring of your choice. The pumpkin spice creme takes steamed milk and adds in pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove for a full fall flavor profile. In addition, the whipped cream on top is always a bonus, and it blends splendidly with other flavors in this drink.                      


Iced Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso

I can’t say this drink five times fast, but I could definitely drink five of them. The iced brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso is just as appealing as it sounds, offering that certain sweetness that only brown sugar can give. This drink starts with Starbucks blonde espresso shaken together with brown sugar and cinnamon. That combination alone is a winner, but then it gets topped off with oat milk and ice to make it creamy and cool. With three shots of espresso, this drink is sure to start your day with a jolt of energy and a smile.

The pumpkin spice creme frappuccino is yet another coffee-free option for anyone who’s looking to celebrate fall without adding any more caffeine to their day. Not to mention, it allows those who don’t like coffee to participate in the fall celebrations. This blended drink combines a creme drink and a frappuccino. It mixes together milk, ice, and a thickening frappuccino syrup for a perfectly cold consistency. For that cinnamon taste you desire, the barista adds the special pumpkin spice sauce. I love this drink because it’s the non-coffee version of Starbucks pumpkin spice frappuccino. It’s a great treat for me – and even my kids. 


Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato

It seems like oat milk has taken over as the superior milk alternative these days, but in my book, almond milk is still the best. And Starbucks cinnamon almond milk macchiato is a great dairy-free option. This drink starts with two shots of rich espresso. It adds almond milk and sweet cinnamon dolce for a sweet yet spicy flavor. The foam on top holds just enough caramel sauce along with that necessary sprinkle of cinnamon dolce topping.
