Mix 3/4 cups water & 3/4 cups sugar together over medium heat; cooking until the sugar has completely dissolved.
Then add in 1/2 tbs cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground cloves, 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and 1.5 tbs pure pumpkin puree. Whisk together all of ingredients frequently for about 5 minutes, making sure not to let the syrup come to a boil.
At this point you could strain the syrup into your glass jars with a cheesecloth. I don't do this because I like to see the spices. Somehow it makes it feel more festive to me.
You can either serve some coffee right away with the pumpkin spice syrup or store it in the refrigerator for later (making sure to shake before using). This is what my guests will be receiving this year at Thanksgiving :-)
I tried to wait until Thanksgiving to dive into my personal stash, but I failed, miserably, and actually had some with my coffee yesterday morning. It was so delicious that I don’t even feel guilty about not waiting lol
So in case you need some favor ideas, or you just want to add this as a treat with your coffee and pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, I highly recommend this recipe!
