Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup

Pumpkin Spice Syrup Made With Actual Pumpkin

You'd think it'd be a given that pumpkin spice lattes (and many other seasonal treats) are made with actual pumpkin, but alas, that's not always the case. That syrup being pumped into a mug of steaming milk and espresso? Sure, it brings the sugar and spice, but not an ounce of pumpkin.

Remedy the situation with this smooth, spiced, pumpkin-puree-based syrup that's simple to make. Add a glug or two to your coffee, shake it up into a margarita, or drizzle it over pancakes (or even ice cream!) — the options for pumpkin spicing up your life are nearly endless.
