Homemade DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte
Nothing says the start of fall like the first official day of the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. As the cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove scents blend together, PSL-enthusiasts everywhere preach the gospel of the season’s hottest (literally) hand accessory.
Embrace the obsession this year, and go all DIY with your own handmade PSL. That’s right. You can make it in your own kitchen. With the perfect spice blend, Sarah Carey creates this fall’s favorite at home — or take to work — latte.
The young, up-and-coming FIT designer Gabrielle Ruffino from “Shriek or Chic: Martha’s Haute Halloween Challenge" joins Sarah for a warming Halloween favorite and discusses what it was like competing against New York City’s finest young designers for a chance to create an original Halloween costume for Martha.
So, grab your best sweater dress and scarf, and cozy up with the drink that has its own fan base.
