Fall brings sweater weather, beautiful foliage, and most importantly, our favorite drink to Starbucks. Every year, tons of people anticipate the arrival of the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte. Yes, we love it, but we all know it's #basic.
Check out a few of our favorites from the secret menu and who knows, one of them might end up being your new go-to fall choice!
