Spiced Latte Season:
5 Frothy Drinks to Complement Your Cocktail Toppers
It’s time to slip into some cosy coats and warm up with a frothy drink or two – yes it’s officially spiced latte season!
If you’re looking for some scrumptious suggestions of what drinks to make this Autumn then you’re in luck.
Here are some of our favourites…
Pumpkin Spiced Latte
Can you even talk about spiced latte season without discussing the drink that started off the whole hype?!
Those warming notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg set our tastebuds tingling every time.
Originally created by Starbucks, the drink was rolled out to all of their stores in 2004 and has grown in popularity every year. Now our local independents have been creating their own yummy spin on the popular drink, and we’re not complaining!
You’ll be spoilt for choice on where to pick up your pumpkin spiced latte!
We love the calming qualities of peppermint and the hearty taste of mocha. Put them together and what do you get?
A little taste of heaven.
As the days draw in and the temperature drops, you need something indulgent to warm you back up –and a peppermint mocha does the job perfectly.
This recipe is a winner for us. If you’re not as crazy about a minty taste, just have a play around with some different flavoured syrups instead!
Salted Caramel Latte
When we fancy a change from the pumpkin classic, we like to mix up our latte routine with salted caramel.
For us, caramel is synonymous with autumn. Don’t get us wrong, we could definitely fill our boots with the sugary taste all year round, but it hits different this time of year.
Its golden, indulgent texture, elevates any coffee induced drink. Add a little salted element to offset the sweet and you’ll reach hot drink paradise.
Caramel hazelnut hot chocolate
Need we say more?
Caramel, hazelnut and chocolate – we can already feel our sweet tooth twitching.
Hot chocolates were designed to warm us up in the chillier months, and this is perhaps one of the most comforting drinks to hit our lips.
And whilst a hot chocolate might not produce much froff, an extra swirl of some whipped cream is a must.
Go on, treat yourself!
Are you a little bit Biscoff crazy too?
We certainly are, we’d happily add it to anything sweet!
But have you tried a Biscoff latte yet?
If not – you’re welcome in advance.
Coffee and biscuits are the ultimate match made in heaven – so combine them into one drink and you’ve got a winner.
This is the recipe that we are hooked on at the moment…
Oh, and of course you’ll need to put a complementary Biscoff biscuit on the side – after all it would be rude not to.

‘Tis the season to party.
If you’re ready to host a top event at home this year and want to pull out all of the stops – then you’re in luck, we’re here to help!
Here are our top tips to creating a party to remember.
Of course you want your party to look the part.
Therefore it’s time to get decorative.
Whether it’s Christmas, New Year or a big birthday, a good place to start is by establishing a theme.
This could be a colour, a location or a decade – just make sure it’s something that you can channel your creative spirits into.
Then you’ll want to base all of the little extras around this theme – the balloons, the plates, the glasses, the cocktail toppers, the paper chains, anything you fancy.
Make sure to go that little bit extra for a real party pay-off.
No party is ever complete without some very tasty drinks.
If you’re feeling flashy, you should definitely get the cocktail shaker out and mix up some tasty tipples.
A cool, fun idea is to create a party menu if you find the time. You can name your drinks based on the theme and let your guests experience the bar-treatment whilst at yours.
This also allows you to design and order a variety of different cocktail toppers, to make each style of drink stand out. Whether you decide to pick and print the names of each cocktail or keep it classic with some familiar faces – your guests will love that you’ve gone the extra mile!
Something to bear in mind over the party season is that you will be entertaining plenty of designated drivers, so make sure to stock up on the soft drinks and add a couple of mocktails to the menu.
Every great party needs a playlist that sets the tone for the night.
You want a mix of songs that gets the vibe just right.
If you want a sophisticated evening select some chilled out tunes, but if you want people dancing definitely slip in some big anthems.
A nice idea is to add a ‘request bucket’ with some pens and paper next to it.
You can get your friends to write their song suggestions and pop them in. As the night goes on you can select a few at random and add them to the Spotify queue.
Everyone’s a winner!
Let’s talk food!
Every good party host knows that there’s a point in the night where some guests need feeding.
It doesn’t need to be anything major but a variety of picky bits never go a miss.
If you’re looking to add a little sparkle to your snacks then you’re in luck, as we have a very quick hack…
Our toppers don’t have to just be for cocktails, so getsome cool designs stocked up and add them to your online order. You can then use these to decorate your cupcakes and sweet treats to show your guests you’ve gone the extra mile (without actually having to do very much!)
Who’s ready to party?
We hope you’re feeling inspired and go big with your celebrations!
Providing you’ve got the right people round and some delicious drinks on standby you can’t go too wrong.
All that’s left is to get your dancing shoes on.
