Anyone who knows me well knows I love Starbucks. I especially love Starbucks in the fall and winter, when the weather is chilly and the coffee is hot and seasonal. In California, I grew very accustomed to a Starbucks drive thru on every corner and being able to zip through with all three of my kids in the car.
Now that we live in Alaska, there are only a couple of Starbucks on the entire Kenai Peninsula. The nearest one is approximately 30 minutes away. As soon as school started and the trees began to turn, I was craving a Pumpkin Spice Latte. I was thrilled when I found this syrup recipe that I could make and store at home. And every afternoon, I switch on my espresso machine and enjoy one delicious, steaming, homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte.
As a bonus, you can also use this syrup to make fabulous homemade Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer, too!
