Move over Pumpkin Spice Latte, there’s a new autumnal latte in town ready to take over. This sweet, spiced latte is very easy to make daily if you prep your syrup, making this a perfect way to entice you to brew at home and avoid overpriced drinks from coffee shops.
Ginger Spice Syrup Recipe
The key to making this recipe as convenient as possible in the morning is to make this syrup the night before, especially since it needs to sit for about 12 hours in the fridge before you can use it. This is a take on the classic simple syrup, so it’s very easy to whip up once you have the ingredients.
You can also use this syrup in other drink recipes, so if you usually opt for an Americano or cappuccino in the morning, you can still add a splash of this syrup for a little taste of fall.
- A 3-inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced into ¼ inch pieces
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cinnamon stick
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup brown sugar
- Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
- Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the syrup thickens to your ideal texture.
- Remove from heat and let cool before transferring to an airtight container.
- Refrigerate until chilled.
- Add to your favorite coffee drink! This syrup will stay good in your fridge for 2-3 weeks when stored in an airtight container.
Ginger Spice Latte Recipe
Once your syrup is made, whipping up a Ginger Spice Latte is no problem. The only additional step from your usual morning latte will be adding in the syrup, so even if you’re still wiping the sleep out of your eyes on a rainy autumn morning you can make this drink.
- Ginger Spice Syrup (I used about ½ tablespoons, but you can use whatever matches your preferences)
- A double shot of espresso (I brewed with Whole Latte Love’s Crema Wave)
- 6 oz whole milk
- Pull your shot of espresso. If you’re brewing into a separate espresso cup, pour into your drinking mug.
- Add your syrup to the espresso and mix with a spoon or small whisk until combined (about 10-15 seconds).
- Steam your milk and pour into your mug with espresso and syrup.
This recipe is perfect for fall and winter – one taste tester said it would be perfect for around a fall bonfire or on Christmas morning – so you can make up this recipe as soon as the temperatures start to drop.
