Here's how I made it: 

½ cups Pumpkin Puree
1/4 cup Sugar or honey
½ teaspoons Vanilla
1-¼ cup Water
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoons All Spice
½ teaspoons Ginger

1 gallon of Apple Cider

Directions for the syrup:
1. Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and simmer. 
2. Lower temperature and cook for about 15 minutes, you'll want to stir every few minutes so that it doesn't become clumpy. 
3.You want the mix to be thick, the color may become slighter browner as it simmers. 
4. Store in airtight container in the fridge until you're ready to make the cider!

To make the cider:
1. Mix about 2-3 Tablespoons of the syrup into your mug of warmed apple cider. 
2. Fill about 3/4 of the way up 
3. Top off with whip cream and pumpkin spice! 

Stay hungry my friends...
