How to Make an Iced Caramel Macchiato. Coffee is no longer a drink for the masses. It has reached a point where you almost can't get a regular plain cup of coffee anymore. Espresso is the purest most concentrated form of the bean and the variety of different ways it comes is as varied as a bartender's book of recipes. One that is especially flavorful is an Iced Caramel Macchiato.
- 1/2 cup espresso
- 8 oz. cold milk
- 4 tbsp. caramel sauce
- Vanilla syrup such as Tosani's
- 16 oz. glass
Brew 1/2 cup of fresh espresso. The type of coffee beans that you choose will certainly vary the taste of the drink. Use your favorite.
Add 2 tbsp. of vanilla syrup to a 16 oz. glass. Fill the glass about 3/5 of the way to the top with cold milk. Add ice cubes and stir.
Pour fresh espresso slowly over the ice and try to make the mix only go half way down the glass.
Top with fresh whipped cream and drizzle about 2 to 4 tbsp. of caramel sauce over the top.
Other things may be done to make it a bit special. Top the drink with shaved white chocolate, cinnamon, or powdered sugar.
