Pumpkin Drinks at Starbucks

For PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) fans, the end of August means pumpkin season time at Starbucks.

Pumpkin spice sauce and pumpkin spice syrup are used to flavor and sweeten everything from cold brews, lattes, and cold foam.

The spices that are in pumpkin spice are cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. These flavors are what’s used in pumpkin pie.

3 Ways to Add Pumpkin Spice to a Drink

  1. Pumpkin spice sauce
    Made of sugar, condensed skim milk, and pumpkin puree, this is the sauce that flavors drinks, and cold foam, with pumpkin. Pumps of pumpkin sauce can be added to any drink.
  2. Pumpkin cream cold foam
    Top any cold drink with this pumpkin flavored cold foam. Cream, milk, pumpkin spice sauce, and vanilla syrup are blended together in a special blender to create fluffy foam.
  3. Pumpkin spice topping
    This is blend of ground spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and clove) that gets sprinkled on top of drinks. You can ask for this topping to be added to any drink.

Tips on Ordering Pumpkin Drinks

  • Chai and pumpkin are a great pairing since the spices in chai are in pumpkin spice and have similar flavor profiles.
  • Pumpkin sauce contains dairy (condensed skim milk) so any drinks with the sauce can’t be made dairy-free.
  • When ordering secret menu pumpkin drinks, be aware that not all ingredients may be available due to ingredient shortages. Have a backup drink in mind or ask for substitutions. 
  • For secret menu drinks, it’s best to order it in person, and during a time when they’re not so busy. Tipping is always appreciated by the baristas.
