by Daniel Feller

It's Fall! Time to spend too much at Starbucks on pumpkin spice latés, right? WRONG! Make your own pumpkin spice syrup! Pretty wonderful. Recipe borrowed from


  • 1 ½ Cups Water
  • 1 ½ Cups Sugar
  • 4 Cinnamon sticks
  • ½ Teaspoons Ground cloves
  • ½ Teaspoons Ground ginger
  • ½ Teaspoons Ground nutmeg
  • 3 Tablespoons Pumpkin purée
  • Funnel
  • Cheesecloth
  • Whisk
  • Medium sauce pan

  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather the ingredients!

    Step 2

    Step 3

    Put your stove in medium-high heat and slowly dissolve sugar sugar in water. Don't let it boil.

    Step 4

    Step 5

    Add cinnamon sticks!

    Add pumpkin

    Step 7

    Add all the other spices and stir often. Remember to not let the syrup boil.

    Step 8

    Wait around 5 minutes and stir often. Remember not the boil to mixture.

    Step 9

    After heating mixture for 5 mins, remove from heat and let it cool for about 10 mins.

    Step 10

    This is my set up for filtering the spices from the syrup. The cheesecloth is put into the filter and strains the spices into the bottle. The bowl catches any drips.

    Step 11

    There it is! Now add a couple tablespoons to coffee along with some creamer/milk/ heavy whipping cream and enjoy saving tons of money.

    Step 12

    I added syrup to my Boston cold brew coffee and it made a very tasty pumpkin spiced iced laté! Enjoy!

    Step 13

    P. S. This syrup is also great on ice cream, or anything else that might benefit from some extra pumpkiny wonderful-ness
