Default Starbucks white chocolate mocha.. how do you make it?

Does anybody know how to make a white chocolate mocha from Starbucks? I love them, but they are SO expensive. I'm not really sure how they make them. Thanks!

Default Gingerbread Latte

Gingerbread syrup
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup fresh espresso
8 ounces milk, steamed (with a little foam)

Garnish
whipped cream
ground nutmeg

1. Make the gingerbread syrup by combining water, sugar, ginger, cinnamon and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Be sure the pan is not too small or the mixture could easily bubble over.
2. Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat and simmer syrup, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Remove the syrup from the heat when it's done and put a lid on it.
3. Make a double shot of espresso (1/2 cup). Using an espresso machine steam 8 ounces of milk, or heat up the milk in the microwave if your machine does not foam and steam milk.
4. Make your latte by first adding 1/2 cup espresso to a 16 ounce cup. Add 1/4 cup gingerbread syrup, followed by the steamed milk, stir.
5 Top off the drink with a dollop of whipped cream, and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

Makes 1 grande latte (16 ounces)

I think making these drinks yourself is so much better than drinking the syrupy, pricey Starbucks version because you can control the sugar amount. DD has worked there and told me the Gingerbread drink has 18 or 25 "pumps" of syrup. I about puked thinking about that even though I liked it before I knew what was in it. They use a white choc syrup too.

I know they have SO much sugar in them. I guess that's why they are so good and I can only have them once in a while.. LOL
