Pumpkin Spice Latte

My friend Mr. M came over to take down the tent I had set up in the backyard. I gave him a few of the Snickerdoodle Cupcakes I made, plus a mug of this latte. The measurements looked off so I cut everything but the espresso in half. He says it tastes like Second Cup Pumpkin Spice Latte, but not as sweet. Good enough for me. And if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice on hand I’ve included an easy recipe for that as well.

Note: I made the espresso using Nescafe instant espresso powder.
