I found this recipe online several different places, and it IS a very good recipe. If you don't want to use the syrups called for in other recipes, make your own! When the syrup is done, brew the espresso, steam some hot milk, and continue with your latte. It's simple, it's delicious, and inexpensive. No hard to find syrups. Preparation time is a guess and probably takes less time then stated.
Note: Please note! The recipe makes more syrup then called for. Please use only the amount called for. Put the rest in the refrig and use it later.Also, the stuff starbucks uses is obviously different from homemade, so use the amount called for. From www.TopSecretRecipes.com
