Ever have the thought: "man i want a Starbucks Iced Caramel Macchiato, but its like $5 for a venti?" Well, with this guide, I will show you how to make a Caramel Macchiato at home in 3 steps. This is a tasty treat to relax with on a warm day.
2 Shots of Espresso
8-9 Oz of Whole Milk (or Lowfat or Skim)
I like Caramel Macchitos from Sbux. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I dedicate this guide to my corporate overlords for creating a tasty (and no so authentic) coffee drink. If you hate Starbucks, then read up on the last page of this guide: Final Thoughts.
Step 1: Drizzle Caramel the Caramel
Drizzle the caramel onto the sides of your glass.
Step 2: Drop in a few pieces of Ice and Pour in the Milk
Carefully drop in the ice. Pour in the milk SLOWLY. This will prevent the milk from flushing the caramel off the sides of the glass.
Step 3: Slowly pour in the Espresso
Slowly pour in the espresso. This will prevent the espresso and milk from mixing, providing a nice separation effect of liquids. Top off the drink with some more caramel sauce.
Step 4: Final Thoughts
Thanks for reading.
Adjust the quantities of the ingredients to your liking. More caramel for sweetness. More espresso if you like a stronger drink.
