DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Lattes around Whitewater

Autumn has arrived and the famous pumpkin spice latte (PSL) has made an appearance in Whitewater.

Three local businesses are serving the seasonal drink: Willie’s 360, McDonald’s and The SweetSpot Café. Each business makes their latte with similar ingredients and in similar ways.

The scent of Willie’s 360’s PSL reminds me of the upcoming holiday season.

McDonald’s PSL incorporated the coffee just enough to wake me up in the morning and keep me going.

The initial scent given off from the SweetSpot’s PSL is pumpkin and cinnamon with a hint of coffee. It was creamy and flavorful. The cinnamon sprinkled on top was a pleasant surprise.

After tasting the different lattes at these three locations, I decided to take a chance and make my own.
