Ingredients

Apple Spice Syrup

Apple Spice Latte

Optional toppings

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan add the apple juice, water, light brown sugar and apple pie spice. Whisk to combine. Bring mixture to a simmer while stirring occasionally. Allow to simmer about 5-7 minutes until the amount has reduced to about half. The syrup will be thicker and will thicken more as it cools. Once the syrup is cooled slightly you can pour into a jar for storage. Can store in air tight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 weeks. Just shake before use. Can also re-heat before adding to the coffee.
  2. Prepare your coffee.
  3. Pour the 4 tablespoons of apple spice syrup and the milk or cream into the hot coffee. Stir to combine. Serve warm. 

Notes

If you don’t have apple pie spice on hand you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice, and dash ground cloves or ginger.

The apple spice syrup recipe makes about 1-1 and 1/4 cup of syrup. Store in the refrigerator in a jar or other air tight container. I prefer my lattes with 4 tablespoons of the syrup if you want a bolder spice flavor to your coffee you can increase the amount that you use.

You can also sub apple cider in the recipe, but the spice flavor is much more pronounced than when using apple juice.
