Pumpkin Spice Syrup is a fall favorite blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves in a robust pumpkin-flavored syrup, perfect for adding a burst of flavor to coffee, tea, smoothies, lattes and more.
There are several different ways to prepare this syrup. If you don’t want to measure out all of the spices individually you can use 1 1/2 teaspoons of Pumpkin pie spice instead.
1½ cups water
1½ cups sugar
4 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
½ tsp. ground ginger
½ tsp. ground cloves
3 tbsp. pumpkin puree
In a medium saucepan combine sugar and spices, whisking together to incorporate, add water and turn the heat on to medium, stirring occasionally until sugar is completely dissolved. Add cinnamon sticks and the pumpkin puree.
Cook about 5 minutes, stirring often, but do not let the mixture boil. Turn down the heat if necessary. Remove from heat and cool 10 minutes, then strain the syrup through a fine sieve or mesh strainer. If you do not have either, a funnel lined with a coffee filter works well.
Store in Fridge up to 30 days.
To make a delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte, mix a shot of hot espresso with 2 TBS of Pumpkin Spice Syrup and 4-6 oz of hot steamed milk. Top with whipped cream, a dash of pumpkin spice seasoning and a drizzle of caramel.
