As soon as even the idea of fall hits, even before a chill is in the air, we (and by we, I mean me) start moving away from hot babe summer and begin dreaming of the true star of the autumn season: pumpkin spice.

So like any sane person, by the time it's actually pumpkin spice season, I need some space from this flavor. Dare I say that out loud! So here I am, moving into cozy babe autumn and pumpkin and I are on a break.
So to combat my very short [beverage] attention span, I have developed the bestie to the Pumpkin Spice Latte: the Sweet Potato Latte. I know what you are thinking
"wow...big leap there..." and you are correct, both these drinks are very similar. HOWEVER, after weeks of the sweetness of pumpkin, the sweet potato bring it down a notch. It feels like some kind of mixture of thanksgiving sweet potato casserole and it's best friend pumpkin.
