What I like most about hot apple drinks is that everyone loves them. Even if you’re not a coffee drinker or a tea enthusiast you will probably still enjoy sipping on a cup of this Caramel Apple Spice. I would say that this drink is a pretty close copycat to the famous Starbucks indulgence too! Make it for yourself or imress your friends with your barista skills.

    this is my FAVORITE fall/winter drink at starbucks. it doesn’t have the caffeine I need but as a mid-day pick-me-up, it’s the best thing, ever. It’s got the most amazing taste!! I’m so happy you can make it at home now!

    OMG that sounds so good! Even though it’s like 80F and still on the hotter side, I want to guzzle one of these. Pinned!

    I haven’t had the Starbucks version, but I’m pretty sure I won’t even need it if I make this version! This looks delicious!

    Oh yes, this would have been the perfect remedy to this morning’s 30 degree weather. I’ve never had the Starbucks version but this homemade take is definitely happening this winter!
