SPOKANE, Wash.– Stop us if you’ve heard this already, but Starbucks just released its pumpkin spice latte– signaling the start of fall for some.

While August seems a little early for some, others rushed to order the seasonal specialty or its companion, the pumpkin cold brew.

Pumpkin spice is typically a sign of the seasons changing but what exactly is it? If you’re looking to try your hand at making a pumpkin spice cup of joe at home, you’re probably in luck! It’s made from a lot of spices you might already have on hand.

Here’s a breakdown of ingredients that make up the flavor:

  • Cinnamon
  • Ginger
  • Nutmeg
  • Cloves
  • Allspice

For all of you who want to put off the start of fall for just a little bit longer, we have good news: autumn officially begins on Sept. 22.
