Starbucks' new drink might replace your Pumpkin Spice Latte

Make way for the Chile Mocha.

When Pumpkin Spice Lattes show up, summer is truly over (sigh). And this year Starbucks Canada is doubling up on their warm-weather buzzkills by debuting a brand-new fall drink on September 6 — weeks before fall officially begins.

The Chile Mocha is a blend of espresso, cocoa and spice-infused steamed milk topped with whipped cream and dusted with ancho and cayenne pepper. Despite the chili powder, the drink isn’t too spicy, but it is a total sugar-bomb. It’s pretty, which means it’ll be blowing up your Instagram feed in no time flat. But is it enough to dethrone the beloved PSL? Starbucks has sold more than 200 million cups of the famed beverage since debuting it in 2003. Plus, the PSL has its own sassy Twitter account. That’s some spicy competition.
