Klaxon: it’s October, which means we all get to be unapologetically basic about Autumn now and not be judged for it. Praise be.
We will quote F. Scott Fitzgerald like he’s a fond uncle of ours and clog our camera roll up with leaves glorious leaves
We will wear the coats and the knitwear and happily get claggy armpits in the process because it’s still slightly too sunny. We will quote F. Scott Fitzgerald like he’s a fond uncle of ours and clog our camera roll up with leaves glorious leaves because we are walking talking October clichés and ain’t nothing 2020 can do about it.
We’ve already drunk enough pumpkin spice latte to sink a battleship and yet we still want more because it warms our soul in a way that only a spicy caffeinated winter squash can.
There’s something extra cosy about shuffling into the kitchen and brewing your own signature fall cuppa
As much as we enjoy the seasonal ritual of wandering down to our local coffee house and queuing for a PSL, there’s something extra cosy about shuffling into the kitchen and brewing your own signature fall cuppa from the comfort of your own home, swaddled in a dressing gown. Not to mention the coin you’ll save on that daily Starbucks habit.
Here’s how to make our budget-friendly homemade PSL!
- Start by heating your milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spices on the hob
- To make pumpkin pie spice add 4 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of ground ginger, 1 teaspoon of ground cloves, and 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg and give them a mix. Store them in an airtight container.
- When hot combine the pumpkin spice milk with your coffee
- Divide the mixture between two mugs and decorate however you wish, we went for whipped cream a sprinkling of chocolate powder and a cinnamon stick!
