Hello Everyone! Today is a good day! Let’s make Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup for a DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte!
This morning I woke to my husband dancing around singing a made-up song about the Pumpkin Spice Latte to the tune of Luke Bryan’s, “Huntin’, Fishing’, Lovin’ Every Day.” It went something like this…
A huntin’, fishin’, and drinkin’ Pumpkin Spice Latte
That’s the prayer that a soldier prays
Thank God He made me this way
Huntin’ and fishin’ and drinkin’ pumpkin spice latte
Early in the morning and late in the evening
I’m getting ready to drink a pumpkin spice latte
Huntin’ and fishin’ and drinking’ pumpkin spice latte
Bless his heart! The man loves anything pumpkin and this famous fall drink makes the top of his list. He is sure Jesus will serve these in heaven. (If you have never heard this song, click here: Huntin’, Fishing’, Lovin’ Every Day.)
My sweet husband inspired me to create a version of my own for Autumn Saturday Mornings! If you are a fan of the PSL or have a loved one who is, give this EASY recipe a try.
Sparkle! Sparkle! XX-gwyn
PS …Have a co-worker who loveS PSL’s, take a bottle into work and set it by the coffee pot. It is great in coffee with creamer. You will inspire a little Luke Bryan Lyrics in your co-workers. SMILE!
Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup
2 1/2 cups water
1 3/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 whole cloves (Easy on the cloves!!!!!…just two!!!)
5 heaping tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium pot, add all the ingredients. Stir together over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved completely. Continue cooking over low heat for an additional 5-6 minutes. AVOID bringing the mixture to a boil.
Over a bowl, strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer. To store, carefully pour the mixture into an an air tight container. (I picked the bottle in the photo up at a local craft store.) Unused syrup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Note: If you are storing your syrup for future use, it will separate. It will require a good shake.
Let’s make a PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE!
If you have a home expresso maker. Simply make your latte the way you like it and add your desired amount of the Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup. Top with Sparkling Charm PSL Sprinkles.
If you don’t have a home espresso maker brew a cup of SUPER strong coffee. Heat the milk in a pot over medium/high heat. Avoid reaching a boil. Once it’s hot use a whisk to incorporate air, creating foam. Combine the coffee, syrup and hot milk. Top with whipped cream and Sparkling Charm PSL Sprinkles.
OR…just make a cup of coffee, add a dash of creamer, and pour in some Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup! … and top with Sparkling Charm PSL Sprinkles.
