DIY Pumpkin Spice Syrup

October 14, 2011

Pumpkin spice syrup is a great condiment to have around the holidays.  Essentially, you will infuse a simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar) with aromatic spices like cinnamon and cloves. You can add the syrup to whipped cream or frosting for a kick of flavor.  Or use it to make your own pumpkin spice lattes at home.  For a Halloween, add the syrup to cocktails for a festive touch.
