How to make Starbucks Iced Caramel Macchiato at Home

Learning how to replicate Starbucks’ Iced Caramel Macchiato drink is not too difficult. Starbucks has actually posted this recipe on its website. However, we suggest following the below iced coffee recipe since the instructions that Starbucks’ provides are not detailed enough (probably because they want you to stop by one of their stores).

Note: While having an espresso machine is a nice to have, you do not need one for this recipe. Feel free to leverage a French Press, a Moka Pot, or an Aero Press. If you don’t have any of these, you can use Medium ground coffee with hot water (brew your coffee for about 5 mins then use a mesh strainer to remove the sludge).

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place vanilla in glass
  • Add cold milk (or your preferred non-dairy milk)
  • Fill glass with ice to one-inch just below the rim
  • Slowly pour the espresso shots over the ice (Starbucks obviously is recommending their own signature espresso coffee, but any quality espresso shot will do).
  • Top with caramel syrup
