    iced caramel macchiato

    First, let’s break down what a Caramel Macchiato actually is, other than a fun word to keep saying over and over.

    It is a layered espresso drink of vanilla syrup, cold milk, espresso (or strong brewed coffee) and caramel sauce. The traditional Macchiato does not have whipped cream, but I advise bucking the trend on that one.

    You’ll need…


    Prep: Brew coffee, let cool, and fill each cup up with ice.

    caramel macchiato ingredients

    Add 1oz of vanilla syrup to each cup.

    add vanilla

    Then, carefully pour 4oz of milk into each.

    add milk

    Pour the coffee/espresso through the center of the milk.

    add coffee

    Top with whipped cream and a generous drizzle of caramel sauce.
