Coffee shop serving Summitt Spice in honor of late Lady Vols coach

Awaken Coffee in downtown Knoxville is serving up Summitt Spice this fall.

A Knoxville coffee shop is offering up a sweet treat in honor of a Tennessee legend.

Awaken Coffee, located at 125 W. Jackson Ave. in downtown, asked customers for their suggestions in naming a new fall-themed pumpkin drink last month.

The most popular suggestion was Summitt Spice, named for late Lady Vols basketball coach Pat Summitt, who lost her battle with Alzheimer's earlier this year.

The latte is flavored with pumpkin and topped with toasted marshmallows.

The shop is also offering a special deal on Thursday, September 24. For every Summitt Spice sold on that day, they will donate $1 to Alzheimer's research.
