Starbucks's Secret Pumpkin Caramel Macchiato Is About to Be Your New Favorite Fall Drink

In case you missed it, Starbucks's pumpkin-spice-flavored syrup is capable of a WHOLE lot more than just your basic PSL. Thanks to a handful of crafty coffee addicts out there, we have a wealth of secret menu drinks revolving around the Fall-approved flavor, and it's time we publicly profess our love for one in particular: the Caramel Pumpkin Macchiato. Just seeing those three words in succession has us drooling with anticipation.

Though this drink, which we'll just go ahead and refer to as the CPM, isn't on the official Starbucks menu, we have the exact directions you need for your barista to make it. When you ask for a caramel macchiato (either hot or iced), simply request that it's made with pumpkin-spice syrup instead of the vanilla syrup it's usually mixed with. And don't forget to ask for the pumpkin-spice topping (which consists of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and clove). Just like that, the coziest flavor combination ever can be yours.

Get a (virtual) taste of this Fall-approved concoction by scoping out the photos ahead. And if this doesn't quite satisfy your desire for pumpkin-filled secret menu items, the Pumpkin Cheesecake Frappuccino is sure to make your taste buds do a happy dance.
