Starbucks created this festive drink in 2003 and started a phenomenon that has continued every autumn since.  You can find ‘PSL’, as it’s become known as,  in almost every coffee shop once September rolls around. But instead of leaving your house for this iconic hot beverage, make your own with all natural ingredients!
