Enjoy everything that autumn brings: cooler temperatures, colorful leaves, comfy sweaters, and these 10 fall-inspired drinks!

Fall is in full swing here in Colorado. The drop in temperature has many people heading to their favorite coffee shops to warm up. We all know about the Pumpkin Spice Latte that debuted by Starbucks in 2003. Containing spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, the PSL evokes feelings of nostalgia, the holidays, and a sense of coziness. 

Some local Colorado Springs establishments have gotten creative with the seasonal drinks they offer, and you can now find these fall flavors featured in some fun and innovative concoctions. From lemonades and cider to beer and cocktails, there’s a fall drink for everyone. 

So, move over PSL! Here’s a list of some unique seasonal drinks you can try in Colorado Springs, in no particular order:
