Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup
With pumpkin spice season being not long enough in my opinion I need to make sure I can make all of my pumpkin spice favorites at home. Everything from Pumpkin Spice coffee, Pumpkin Spice Latte and Salted Caramel Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I make all of them mall the time in the fall. Ok, all year round I make all of them but they are my favorite to drink in the fall.

Tips for Making this Recipe
Canned or homemade pumpkin puree. You can use either homemade pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin puree. If you are using canned make sure that it is pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.
Strain Syrup completely. I prefer to use a cheese cloth when I am straining the syrup, however you can also use a mesh strainer. It is important to strain all of the spices and cinnamon sticks or you will have a grainy syrup.
Allow to cool completely before putting in the fridge. It is important that the syrup is completely cooled before being placed into the fridge.
How to Store
Allow the syrup to cool completely. Once cool store in an air tight container in the fridge. If you plan on using it a lot, I suggest making a double batch as this syrup will keep in the fridge for up to one month.
