Now here’s a Starbucks seasonal beverage that I can get behind: the Pumpkin Spice latte! It smells great, it tastes great! What can possibly make it better? Until this fall I would have said “Nothing!” I would have been wrong.
If there was a flaw in the Pumpkin Spice Latte, it was that it wasn’t smooth. It’s very good and I like it, but could it be better? Think of the difference between an orange Popsicle and an orange Dreamsicle. The Popsicle is very good. The Dreamsicle is better.
Here’s now to turn your Pumpkin Spice Latte into something a little smoother, a little creamier: White Mocha. Order your Pumpkin Spice Latte with half Pumpkin Spice and half White Mocha. It’s smoother and creamier and, surprisingly, loses none of the taste. The White Mocha just mellows it a little.
I wish I could take credit for this on my own, but I was introduced to it by a former Starbucks employee that I met while painting pottery at Busch Gardens over the summer. I don’t know his name, but I love his drink. I’m betting anyone else who likes Pumpkin Spice will too. Go ahead. Try it. I’ll wait. Better yet, I’ll go get one too.
