  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 3 small pieces of crystallized ginger (or 1″ fresh ginger, sliced)
  • 1 cinnamon stick (broken in half)
  • 1/2 tsp. whole peppercorns
  • 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

3 Easy Steps to Make Gingerbread Coffee Syrup

1. Gather the ingredients and a medium saucepan.  You’ll also need a clean container to store the syrup.

By the way, if you don’t have one or two ingredients, add them to your grocery pickup or home delivery order. (Best holiday stress buster yet!)

2. Combine the ingredients and allow your Gingerbread Coffee Syrup mixture to simmer on the stovetop for about a half-hour.

Be sure to allow your homemade coffee syrup to cool completely before straining and bottling.

Strain the liquid through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth to remove the grains of spices from the syrup.  The grains won’t hurt the syrup, but less grit makes a smoother, more enjoyable cup of coffee.

3. Package your homemade Gingerbread Coffee Syrup

Transfer the syrup into clean, airtight containers. The syrup will store well in something as simple as a small mason jar.   

You may want to double the recipe and make some to save for yourself.  Heck, make a bigger batch to gift some to friends and family.

Add a mason jar soap pump lid to convert it into a handy coffee station dispenser.
