Since it is fall, everything pumpkin spice is in the air! I was determined this year to find a recipe for pumpkin spice coffee syrup so I could have a PSL at home any time I wanted. I found this recipe and knew I had to try it. For the syrup you will need:
- Brown Sugar
- Pumpkin Puree
- Pumpkin pie spice
And for the latte you will need:
- Strong coffee or espresso
- Pumpkin Spice Syrup
You guys, this was a real loser. I was super disappointed with how it turned out. For one thing, my grocery store doesn’t carry pumpkin pie spice, so I had to make some of my own by combining cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice. I don’t know that it was an exact match, but I did the best I could with what was available and what I could find through a Google search. So, perhaps my lack of appropriate seasonings affected the overall outcome, but I don’t think it did too much. My syrup never really came together. It separated and had to mixed every time I tried to use it. That said, I used it three times before I decided it was a waste and threw it out. Because the syrup wasn’t great, neither was the latte. But that’s really all on the syrup. The latte ratios were fine.
Needless to say, I will NOT be making this again. Such a bummer! I will have to continue my search for the perfect pumpkin spice syrup recipe. I assume that by the time I find it, the world will have moved on to peppermint everything. Oh well.
