I will make it again but with modifications. I too thought the nutmeg amount made it a bit bitter. Maybe just a sprinkle of nutmeg and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. Good but not great, I normally don't like much sweetness in drinks but this needed just a bit more for my taste but I held off.

This pumpkin-spiced latte is is my all-time favorite for fall. It's just sweet enough without being a s total sugar bomb -- quite different from Starbuck's PSL.

I found it to be bitter so tried again without the nutmeg and still didn't like it.
