Classic autumn spices, vanilla extract, brown cane sugar and butternut squash liquid are the four simple ingredients needed to make this simple homemade coffee syrup. Created by Marlene of the On a Sweet Sugar Rush blog, this autumnal syrup was inspired by the popular Pumpkin Spice latte. However, since butternut tends to be naturally sweeter than pumpkin, this is a great way to cut down on sugary content, while still getting those satisfying fall flavors in a drink.

As far as the preparation goes, all of the ingredients can be heated in a pot and cooled before being transferred to a jar or glass for storage. The thick syrup keeps best for about a week and is a delightful way to amp up a plain cup of coffee in the morning.
