How to Make a Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino

A pumpkin spice cappuccino is a delicious hot coffee beverage that tends to be popular during fall months. By using pumpkin pie syrup, available at many grocery stores or coffee shops, you too can make a pumpkin spice cappuccino. The key to remember when making a cappuccino is to make plenty of foam. A cappuccino always uses a significant amount of foam to create a lighter beverage. Whisking well keeps the pumpkin pie flavor mixed into the foam and the milk.
