    Add remaining ingredients and whisk until well-incorporated.

  • Step 2

    Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for approximately 10 minutes. Stir occasionally as to not let the mixture come to a boil.

    Remove saucepan from heat and let cool for approximately 30 minutes. Strain if desired.

    Pour syrup into an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator.

  • Step 3

    A great way to use this syrup is to make your own copycat Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.
    My tasty recommendation? Make your own Pumpkin Spice Chai! I used Twining’s Chai tea and followed the instructions on the box for steeping. Once the tea was to my liking, I stirred in 2.5 Tbsp. pumpkin spice syrup and a splash of milk. Delicious!
