Fall Drinks

I came across these recipes for some of my favorite Starbuck's lattes and rather than leave them on the scraps of paper that I'll just lose, I figured I could write them down here where I can refer back to them. Sorry, Starbuck's!

Pumpkin Spice Latte
1/4 -1/2 cup espresso
1 tsp Torani Pumpkin Spice syrup
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tbsp vanilla
8 oz steamed milk

Gingerbread Latte
8 oz steamed milk
1/4 cup gingerbread syrup (recipe below)
1/4-1/2 cup espresso

Gingerbread syrup:
makes enough for 6-7 drinks, refrigerate between uses
2 cups water
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
bring to a boil and simmer uncovered for 15"

Peppermint Mocha Latte
3tbsp baking cocoa
3tbsp water
1 1/2 tbsp Torani peppermint syrup
1/4-1/2 cup espresso
8-12 oz steamed milk

Yum, yum, enjoy!

Damn they sound yummy but I was thinking there was going to be booze involved

Yum! I never order these because of the sugar. But they sound (and smell) so good.
