Gingerbread spice is the 1st cousin to pumpkin pie spice. It is a spice mixture used to provide a "gingerbread" like flavor to coffee drinks, like mochas and lattes, cookies and even pancakes and other baked goods. The typical spice combination includes ginger, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. So it's very similar to pumpkin pie spice but the ratios are changed up so the primary flavor is ginger.
