There are things that everyone loves about fall: leaves changing, oversized sweaters and curling up to a warm cup of apple cider. There is something about fall drinks that work to get people in the seasonal spirit and it all gets kicked off with Starbucks’ release of its Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Here are a few more places to get your fall drink fix.
General Manager Mark Johnson has a fall lineup with something for everyone. The bar is picking up on a new drink trend and putting Angry Orchard’s Crisp Apple Cider on tap along with Sam Adam’s hearty Octoberfest beer and cans of Yuengling’s Oktoberfest.
Drinks that will pack a little more punch include Spooky Juice, a sort of blue screwdriver with vodka, orange juice and grenadine, and pumpkin pie and caramel apple flavored shots.
All of the Oktoberfest beers this basement bier hall is offering up are all imported from Germany. Waitress senior Chelsea Naughton recommends ordering Hofbrau, Erdinger or Paulner Wiesnfestbier for a lighter Oktoberfest beer. Steinkeller also features Spaten’s red version and Ayner, a wheat brew.
The dining halls on campus will be serving up pumpkin flavored smoothies. You can get yours at Bell Tower, Grey Stone and Ovations. Senior Lindsay Suprenant, brand ambassador for Miami Housing and Dining Services, is thrilled that Miami dining halls are embracing fall trends.
“My favorite time of year is when Starbucks comes out with Pumpkin Spice lattes,” Suprenant said. “It’s awesome that we can get pumpkin flavored drinks with our meal plan too.”
