I tried two different ones and one is a keeper! First I tried a Cinnamon Dulce flavor. It had good flavor but the texture was "slimy". Texture really bother me so until I figure out if it was cooked too long or what I'm not sharing that one. The one I will share is Gingerbread. This one was amazing! Everyone except Lexie liked it and she's not a big coffee/latte type person. Logan and Ariel REALLY liked it and just about fought over the 1st mug I made!
Here's my modified recipe. And here's the link to the original.
Gingerbread Spiced Syrup
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 T. honey
2 T. ground ginger
2 broken up cinnamon sticks
1 t. ground cloves
2 t. allspice
1/2 t. pepper
All you do is mix it all in a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Cool the mix and strain out the cinnamon sticks.
For a latte with this we filled a mug about 1/2 with coffee, 1/2 with milk and mixed in about 2 T. of the gingerbread syrup. It was delish!
Besides making lattes, I'm sure it would be good over ice cream, oatmeal, pancakes etc.... We haven't had a chance to try any of these just yet
The original recipe had different amount for ingredients and used all non-ground but I think you can't go wrong with whatever measurements you choose. We left out nutmeg because I don't like it and went way low on cloves because since my daughter and a friend accidentally added a bunch to a recipe a few years ago strong clove brings back bad memories.
We had a few of these bottles I had bought years ago to make fermented fruit syrups and never got around to it so now I can use them! I did pick up a couple more at Christmas tree shop. They have them for $2 a piece. You could also just store it in a canning jar with lid. I'm imagining it won't last long!
