Can You Buy Pumpkin Spice Syrup?

Can You Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Syrup?
Of course, if you’d rather make Starbucks pumpkin Frappuccino with homemade syrup, that’s fine too.
Making your own syrup also gives you the option to adjust the quantities slightly to get the perfect flavor to suit your tastes.
For a simple homemade syrup for this pumpkin spice Frappuccino recipe use 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of water, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon of ground cloves, ½ teaspoon of ground ginger, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg, and ¼ cup of pumpkin puree (canned or fresh is fine).
Start by simmering the water and sugar on the hob for a few minutes until the sugar has dissolved.
Then add the other ingredients and simmer for around 15 minutes, until it has started to thicken.
Strain the mix through a cheesecloth to get rid of any lumps of pumpkin.
Leave to cool before pouring into an airtight bottle and storing in the refrigerator. Take out to use in your pumpkin spice Starbucks Frappuccino, and other pumpkin recipes as needed.

Store this in an airtight tub or jar and use it as needed.

Marketing as job, barista as passion. An authentic coffee lover, looking for the next fantastic cup of coffee that I will fall in love with. Coffee, for me, is more than a beverage. It's about community and connection - how can all the world consume the same fruit? And differently? How can we have so many different tastes? I also don't know. And because of this, I feel in love each day more for this world. Happy to share and make a change in the coffee community.
