The Pumpkin Spice Latte is one of the perks of having seasons; a coffee that you can enjoy on special occasions and that feels truly special. That’s what Starbucks says anyways.
While these drinks are mostly limited to the Fall season, people are super obsessed with them, to a point where it’s become a meme. The official Pumpkin Spice Latte has an Instagram, called @therealpsl, where the coffee cup wears glasses, watches Stranger Things, skates around and hangs out with cats.

The point? People really love their PSLs. Which is why Popsugar decided it would be a great idea to hack Starbucks’ recipe and make one of their own. Because that’s what the people want. Check it out:
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin spice syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla simple syrup
- 2 shots espresso or 1 cup coffee
- Whipped cream, to garnish
- Pumpkin spice (equal parts cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and ground clove), to garnish
Add milk, pumpkin spice syrup and vanilla syrup into a mason jar. Seal it and shake it, until the milk is frothy and has more volume. Remove the lid and microwave for 1 or 2 minutes until the milk is steamed. Pour the hot contents onto a cup of coffee or espresso, topping it with whipped cream and a pinch of pumpkin spice seasoning.
