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”?\r\n - yeah... it was pretty \r\nHere’s a recipe for my favorite late-October pick-me-up.\r\nIngredients:1 cup of milk1 tablespoon pumpkin spice syrup1 teaspoon vanilla simple syrup2 shots of espresso or 1 cup of coffeeTo garnish:Whipped creamPumpkin spice mix: equal parts cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and ground clove\r\nEarlywood Ingredients1 toddler spoon1 coffee scoop\r\nDirections\r\n\r\nIn a saucepan over medium heat, warm the milk. When it’s hot, but before it’s boiling, whisk in the two syrups.\r\nRemove the saucepan from the heat and whisk the milk vigorously until it is foamy, about 30 seconds.\r\nPour the milk mixture into the espresso or coffee.\r\nTop with whipped cream and a generous pinch of pumpkin spice seasoning.\r\n\r\nEnjoy!
