Luscious Drinks and More on Happiness Is Homemade

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party

Welcome to the Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #496

We are still hot here in central Florida although it is cooler than it has been. What has the weather been like where you are?
I am back to painting. My daughter closed on her new house and wants to paint. I thought after all of the painting we did on her old house before she sold it, I was done. Not so!  What can a mother do?

Let's get to this week's party - simply scroll down to see all the posts that have been linked up by our participating bloggers!

This Week's Features

You either love it or you hate it - the pumpkin spice latte!   Starbucks can get expensive quickly so I love to have a little trick for making these at home - check out the Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte from Kristy of Mommy Hates Cooking.

I am no longer a big drinker (a glass of wine once in a while) but it's fun to have the makings for a seasonal cocktail on hand for when others stop by.  This Crownberry Apple Cocktail from Thirsty Priority looks really delicious!

Apples are in season and it's always helpful to have lots of different ways to use them.  This recipe for Fresh Apple Cake from Nora of Treat and Trick looks simple and delicious - I imagine having a slice with a hot cup of tea for breakfast on a cool autumn morning on my front porch.

I love wreaths - I wonder how many I have now?  Anyways, I immediately fell in love with this DIY Fall Rake Wreath creatively designed by Kathy of Petticoat JUNKtion.  What a neat way to upcycle old items into something unique and beautiful!

Bonus Feature

Typically when I go to The Starbucks for my drink, it's something with caffeine (a coffee, chai or a matcha).  However on a warm day, this drink is my go to.  So you know I've got to keep a copycat recipe pinned - you should also save this Copycat Starbucks Easy Paradise Refresher Drink Recipe to your Pinterest board as well :)

Let's Get To The Party!
