1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 cinnamon sticks
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
3 tbsp. pumpkin puree
Put water and sugar in a saucepan and heat over medium high heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved completely.
Add cinnamon sticks and whisk in the ginger,nutmeg, and pumpkin puree.
Remove from heat and cool for 10-15 minutes.
Strain the syrup through a cheesecloth, place in a container, and store in the refrigerator.
Now for the final step to make the perfect pumpkin steamer. Depending on how much pumpkin your taste buds can handle, add 1 to 2 tbsp of your pumpkin syrup for every cup of milk. Place milk in microwave and heat for 2 to 3 minutes (depending on how hot you like your milk!) Top with whipped cream and carmel syrup and you now have a perfect fall drink! Enjoy!!!
