Try this DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte and Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini Mocktail

The calendar has clicked over to fall, which means football, sweaters, and all the cozy things — including warm fall bevvies.

I have two incredible ones for you that you can easily make right at home — and they both come with a bonus secret ingredient that makes them that much better.

It’s Pumpkin Spice Latte season. Every coffee shop has them now, but you can make one that’s just as good, ACTUALLY BETTER and healthier, at home. Save a bunch of money. And feel better, too.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

  • Around a cup of your favorite brewed coffee
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin puree
  • 2 droppers of FOCL Pumpkin Spice Drops
  • Milk (of your choice)
  • Maple Syrup (desired amount of sweetness)
  • Cinnamon (desired amount of spice)
  • Mix all ingredients except coffee into your favorite large coffee mug.
  • Whisk with a hand blender.
  • Add the desired amount of your favorite coffee or espresso.
  • Sprinkle a dash more cinnamon on top and enjoy! 

Word to the wise: Also try it iced by using a shaker with ice, poured over ice, and topped with your favorite whipped cream topping! 

The FOCL Pumpkin Spice Drops not only make this coffee DELICIOUS, they are just the thing you need to feel centered, calm, and focused for the day — without the artificial sugar-high from those “other” coffee-shop drinks.


We need a good seasonal mocktail, right? This one is literally everything you could ever want in one autumnal drink.

Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini Mocktail

  • 2 shots of espresso (or coffee of your choice — or use caffeine-free, if you’re sensitive to caffeine]
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin puree
  • 2 droppers of FOCL Pumpkin Spice Drops
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 1 oz whole milk (or any milk/cream of your preference)
  • Mix ingredients in a shaker with desired amount of ice. Shake thoroughly. 
  • Pour into a glass of your choice. Martini glasses are a plus. 
  • Top with 3 coffee beans and cinnamon, if you really want to get fancy.

The FOCL Pumpkin Spice Drops spice up this drink in all the right ways and they are an all-natural, healthy way to help you relax, calm your mind, ease everyday stress — without any of the alcohol side effects.

Cheers to these mocktail recipes that come with a secret kick

img_8616-2I did dry-ish January and I felt so good doing it. But you know I love a good cocktail, so I put some mocktails in high rotation and I didn’t miss a thing.

But, I have been packing my mocktails with a punch — a teeny secret ingredient that is literally good for your body. FOCL CBD drops.

They are a zen-creating calming thing that’s good for anything: stress, anxiety, insomnia, inflammation, the list goes on.

CBD calms the nervous system, so it’s a healthy way to take the edge off without turning to alcohol. So all four of these drinks feature the highest quality MCT oil, mixed with premium hemp CBD, which may help you to:

  • Relax and recover
  • Calm your mind
  • Ease everyday stressors
  • Fall asleep quicker
  • FEEL AMAZING
