Everywhere you go during the fall season, you’ll find almost everything in the form of pumpkin spice… Pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cocktails, pumpkin ravioli, etc. Now if you’re not a fan of pumpkin drinks or food, then fall probably isn’t the right season for you. But how can you not like it? If you’re looking for something new to refresh yourself from your typical pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, you’ve come to the right place!
I had the opportunity to try pumpkin flavored cocktails and foods at four amazing places!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did 🙂
From the moment I walked in, I was welcomed with warm smiles! They had laid out a variety of beautiful pastries for me to try as well as a pumpkin spice tea and a pumpkin spice latte. Personally, I love PAUL Bakery. I sometimes go there to do work because it’s so relaxing in there. The ambiance in the bakery made me feel like I was in a little town in France. Their pastries were too delicious to even find the right word to describe them. It was my first time trying a pumpkin spice tea and it was surprisingly refreshing and not too overpowering. I’m glad I found a new spot to buy a PSL!

Where do I even begin…We were given a dozen of their pumpkin spice cupcakes as well as a dozen of their pumpkin cheesecake cupcakes. It was hard to decide which one was my favorite, but I think the pumpkin cheesecake cupcake may have won me over. It was so fresh and moist! I’m a big cheesecake girl so when I had my first bite of that cheesecake, a little piece of me died and went to heaven. It was my first time ever at Georgetown Cupcake and it was everything I had imagined. The sweet aroma that fills the air made me not want to leave.
Thanks to: Jessica Pierson & Jami Kandel for 2 dozen cupcakes!

I’ve always loved David’s Tea. What attracts me the most about this place is their variety. The best part is that with any of their teas, you can get it as a hot/iced tea or latte. When I went in this past week, I was helped right away. I went with the pumpkin cheesecake hot latte with soy milk. Its ingredients include a little bit of pumpkin, carrot, white chocolate, maple sugar, nutmeg, and much more! It was like fall in the form of a latte.
Alibi Bar and Lounge
This was my first time at Alibi and the experience is one of a kind. It used to be the old Charles Street jail so the ambiance is what makes this place unique. Their pumpkin spice martini is a must have. It’s made with pumpkin spice Baileys and sprinkled with cinnamon to give it that extra spicy kick. I was surprised at how spicy it was, but I think that’s what made it so incredibly delicious. I thought it was going to be too sweet because of the pumpkin spice Baileys, but I was wrong. This cocktail really puts the “spice” in pumpkin spice!
