Last week, we took the kids to our favorite pumpkin patch. The day was classic autumn with crisp cool air and the leaves on the trees fluttering like little golden flags against a blue Montana sky. Our kids had the time of their lives feeding the goats, running through the corn maze and picking pumpkins. It was the best kind of day to usher in autumn…Just like a pumpkin spice latte is the best kind of drink to do the same! What is it about pumpkin spice that says, “cozy” and “fall”?
- yeah... it was pretty
Here’s a recipe for my favorite late-October pick-me-up.
1 cup of milk
1 tablespoon pumpkin spice syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla simple syrup
2 shots of espresso or 1 cup of coffee
Pumpkin spice mix: equal parts cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and ground clove
