Fall, that lovely time of the year when the leaves turn red, the weather becomes cool, and everything is suddenly pumpkin-flavored. In school terms, this also means midterms creep up on you and that money you used to have for that Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte has suddenly disappeared. If you're like me and need a hard ass drink after a midterms, look no further. This spiked Pumpkin Spice Latte will satisfy your fall thirst. As an added bonus, it's vegan.
