Pumpkin Spice Syrup

Obviously Fall is the best time of the year for me, I look forward to it every year. There are multiple reasons for it, and one of the many perks of this season are all the specialty drinks, such as apple cider, hot cocoa, and so on. More specifically, I get so excited to order all the new Starbucks drinks that are featured. My favorites are the Pumpkin Spice Latte & the new Salted Caramel Mocha. However, an obsession with Starbucks can start to add up after a while and get pretty expensive. So, I decided to make my own Pumpkin Spice Syrup to add to my favorite drinks at home. The syrup is easy to make and it also makes a lot (it made roughly two mason jars worth). One of my favorite drinks that I have made with the syrup is a pumpkin hot white chocolate. Whip up a big batch of this and make your favorite specialty drinks all season long!! Enjoy :)

For the Pumpkin Spice Syrup:
1C Pumpkin Puree
3C Granulated Sugar
2t Vanilla
3 ¾C Water
1T Cinnamon
1 ½t Ground Nutmeg
¾t Ground Cloves
¾t Ground Ginger

1. To Make the Pumpkin Spice Syrup: Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat, stirring to keep the syrup from burning. Let the mixture cook together until it starts to coat the spoon, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and strain the mixture using a cheesecloth or tea towel into a jar for storage. Keep the syrup in the refrigerator until ready to use. 


  1. Looks so yummy! I saw your post on Sweet as Sugar Cookies. I posted a tutorial on making Italian meringue buttercream if you'd like to check it out!

  2. I bet this would be really good on pancakes too.
