Fall Refreshments

Imagine taking a walk outside on a nice cool fall day. You sit down at a bench in your local park and watch as red and orange leaves blow in the breeze and gracefully fall over your boots. You think to yourself, “wow, if I just had some type of fall flavored drink right now, I could take the best fall Instagram picture the world has ever seen.”

Whether you’re looking for a refreshing beverage to accompany you on a morning walk, compliment one of our fall desserts like our Chesapeake Crab Cakes & More Smith Island Spice Cake, or feature in your next Fall themed Instagram post, there’s a fall beverage to go with every Autumn occasion.

And we know; we’ve made a whole Pinterest board full of them. But among all our pins, we found a few drink recipes that we just needed to share with you now because they’re too perfect!

For the Morning Commuter – Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Latte

pslFor those who have a pretty rough commute in the morning, here’s a drink that will make that traffic jam a little bit more bearable.

Nothing tops a nice warm cup of pumpkin spiced coffee; it’s just a flavor that you can never go wrong with.

But instead of ordering your pumpkin spice latte, have you ever tried making it?

If you’re up for a new challenge, try your hand at making a crock pot Pumpkin Spice Latte. You can even make it the night before so you’ll be ready to go in the morning. Here’s the recipe if you want to try it out!

For the Avid Morning or Afternoon Jogger – Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake

P5OBD0SSG6So maybe you like to take a quick jog before your morning commute. Or, you like to take a run after you get home from work. Either way, here’s a drink that will give you the energy you need to get through your work out.

However, there’s a small fall twist to it. Instead of the typical strawberry or vanilla protein shake, this one offers 100% pumpkiny fall flavor! It’s also pretty easy to make; all you have to do is blend the ingredients together in a blender and voilà!

If you want to give this Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake a try, here’s the recipe!

For the #FridayFunDay Friends – Honey Crisp Apple Sangria 

Michelada

So now it’s Friday and you want something to celebrate the upcoming weekend. You’re out of Pumpkin Puree (because you tried both of those delicious pumpkin flavored drinks above) and all you have on hand is some freshly picked honey crisp apples and a bottle of red wine.

Okay, so maybe that’s not all you have. But if you do have these two ingredients, you’re on your way to making the best fall flavored Sangria you could possibly make!

This drink combines the  seasoned taste of red wine with the crisp taste of honey crisp apples to make a Sangria so refreshing it’ll taste like you just took a bite out of an orchard apple!

If you want to give it a try, here’s the recipe.

For the Weekend Walkers – Apple Cider Floats

EA8E936C36Or maybe you’re someone who plans on spending their entire weekend outdoors taking a walk or hike in the crisp Autumn breeze. Well how about taking a little something to quench your thirst on the way?

Ever heard of a root beer float? Well there’s a seasonal variation of that called an ‘Apple Cider Float’ that’s just grand. It tastes like an apple pie, only it’s cool and refreshing!

If you want to try it out, here’s the recipe!

Now of course, everyone has their own fall pallet to satisfy and you may not want to try any of these. If that’s the case, no worries, we’ve pinned a bunch of fall flavored drinks you could try.
