The BEST ever Pumpkin Simple Syrup

Your starting point for all drinks Fall, this super easy and time-saving Pumpkin Simple Syrup is a keeper! 



It is Fall and time to make ALL things Pumpkin. I started off this season with this Eggless Quick Pumpkin Bread. Then I had a Fall favorite dessert; Mini Pumpkin Bundts and now we head to pumpkin drinks. When you are thinking of making any drink or otherwise, you need a simple syrup. Most people make it from scratch, some even buy it off the shelf.

The standard ingredients to make a  simple syrup---> Sugar + Water. That is ALL you need to simplify making all your drinks. While that works well, I like to make a PUMPKIN Simple syrup and use it through Fall. It has the essentials of a simple syrup, plus pumpkin purèe and pumpkin spice. Once the syrup is ready, it makes a great way to flavor all drinks and even as a simple topping on pancakes and waffles.

This year I barely waited for Fall to begin before I brought my pumpkins home! The local stores started stocking pumpkin since June and they were in my kitchen come July! It was hard to walk past them every time I shopped for veggies and leave them out. So I started Fall baking really early. Good thing, I got to make so many yummy dishes using the orange squashes and now I am going to concentrate on other winter squashes.


This recipe is super simple to make, yet comes in super handy when you are making drinks at a party. It reduces any pumpkin drink to just THREE steps: Add ice and this syrup, top with your favorite cider/soda/water, mix and serve! 

I used this syrup in many drink recipes this season, plus; I also used it to top my slice of Eggless Quick Pumpkin Bread. The combination was PERFECT and we enjoyed a Fall special breakfast. Alcohol lovers?? I have a special recipe for you all. Just head straight to this recipe--> Sparkling Pumpkin Pie Mocktail and add in some Vodka. I promise you this will be the BEST Fall cocktail you have had in awhile! 

The syrup is good for atleast a couple of weeks in the refrigerator. Though it is difficult to let the syrup stay for SO long without using it, you can definitely try! It gives about a cup of syrup and should be perfect for a party over the weekend. So look no further, up your Fall game NOW with this syrup and beyond!
