With the last days of Summer officially over, we’re now experiencing the just-as-hot days of early Fall, wondering why exactly weather people drew the line here. Sure, school is in full swing, and we suppose living in LA is contributing to this lack of temperature change, but still, it just doesn’t feel like Fall yet. You know what might help with all of this? PUMPKIN SPICE!
We’ve noticed that Pumpkin Spice as a flavor has become a popular thing to rag on this year. This probably means that it’s hit the peak of its popularity. Everyone drinks it because it’s delicious and reminds people of Fall, but since EVERYONE drinks it, the too-cool-for-school crowd has decided it’s no longer cool. They’re the ones who constantly complain about Starbucks, as if conveniently located coffee is somehow beneath them. It’s the crowd that has to constantly belittle other peoples’ choices to feel better about themselves – so the more popular the thing that they make fun of, the better they feel. Don’t worry Pumpkin Spice. All this hate means that you’ve finally made it!
We’ve decided to provide a safe haven for Pumpkin Spice and all those who enjoy it. Sauza Tequila agrees with us, which is why they sent along this cocktail recipe. It takes a little while to make, but you can use that preparation time to feel bad for the army of contrarians who won’t be able to enjoy this delicious fall drink lest they relinquish their imaginary coolness!
