15 Starbucks Drinks You Have to Try This Season


The weather is getting colder and leaves are starting crisp, which can only mean one thing: seasonal Starbucks drinks.

Within this list, I went over 15 of the best Starbucks drinks for the autumn season. All of these drinks are delicious, and a few of them happen to be on the secret menu. I went into detail on what to order to ensure that you receive a tasty drink!

Apple Crisp Macchiato

Nutrition Information

The Apple Crisp Macchiato is one of the newest additions to the Starbucks fall menu. This drink is described as "a nostalgic autumn pick-me-up," which is precisely what it is. The drink's flavor is not too robust and tastes exactly like the filling of an apple pie.

Caramel Apple Spice

Nutrition Information

Caramel Apple Spice is one of the most unique drinks on this list. Rather than being a coffee or tea, this drink is steamed apple juice with whipped cream, cinnamon syrup, and caramel drizzle on top. This drink is delicious and incredibly flavorful!

If you love cheesecake as much as I do, you must try this drink ASAP! The rich flavor of this drink is incredible, and it is genuinely a cheesecake in a cup.

If you would like to order this drink, you must start with a creme-based Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino. You will then ask for a pump of Cinnamon Dolce syrup, a scoop of vanilla bean powder, and a pump of white mocha syrup. When ordering a grande, you will need two pumps, and for a venti, you'll need three.

Smoked Butterscotch Frappuccino

Nutrition Information

The Smoked Butterscotch Frappuccino is another delicious drink on this list. It is coffee-based and mixed with a smoked butterscotch sauce. On top, the drink has whipped cream as well as more butterscotch sauce. This frappe is quite sweet but has a slight hint of spice.

Caramel Pumpkin Macchiato (Secret Menu)

The Caramel Pumpkin Macchiato is one of the best seasonal secret menu drinks ever to exist. Although it is simple, it is absolutely delicious and said to be better than the iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte. You will genuinely be upset if you do not try this drink before the season is over. If you would like to order this, order a Caramel Macchiato but ask for pumpkin sauce rather than vanilla. Also, ask for pumpkin spice on top to add extra flavor.

Cinnamon Dolce Latte

Nutrition Information

The Cinnamon Dolce Latte is steamed milk mixed with a cinnamon-dolce syrup, topped with sweetened whip cream, and the same cinnamon syrup. These flavors contribute to the latte's rich and sweet taste.

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

Nutrition Information

The Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew is such a tasty drink! This drink is a regular cold brew topped with cold pumpkin foam and pumpkin spice topping. Also, it is vital to ensure you drink some of the toppings with each sip as it is the most flavorful part of the drink!

Chai Tea Latte

Nutrition Information

The Chai Tea Latte is one of the most flavorful drinks on the list! This latte is made up of black tea infused with various spices, including cinnamon. It is then topped with foam, which allows the mix of a sweet and spicy taste.

The Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino is one of the most delicious drinks on this list as it genuinely tastes like pumpkin pie. This drink is full of unique flavors that everyone must try!

To order this drink, start with a Pumpkin Spice Frappucino. Then, you must ask for cinnamon dolce syrup (one pump for tall, two for grande, and three for venti). Next, a dollop of whipped cream needs to be added as well as cinnamon dolce sprinkles. Finally, the drink is topped with cinnamon dolce and a little more whipped cream.

Fall in a Cup Frappucino (Secret Menu)


The Fall in a Cup drink tastes exactly like its name. This drink is very flavorful and sweet but spicy all at once!

To order this drink in a grande size, you must begin with a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino base. Next, ask for two pumps of caramel syrup and one and a half pumps of chai syrup. Then, it needs to be topped with whipped cream, pumpkin powder, and caramel drizzle. The amount of syrup will differentiate depending on the size of the drink. These measurements can be found online!

Fall Mashup (Secret Menu)


Although similar to the Fall in a Cup, the Fall Mashup is full of unique fall flavors. The combinations of flavors within this drink create an incredibly unique and tasty drink.

To order this, you first ask for a Vanilla Bean Frappucino. Then, ask for pumpkin sauce (one pump for tall & grande and two for venti). Then, add toffee nut syrup (1/2 for tall, 1 for grande, and 1 1/2 for venti). This drink is finally topped off with whipped cream, caramel and chocolate drizzle, and Starbucks seasonal salt.
