Caramel Macchiato

The average coffee mug is probably equivalent to a Tall (12-oz/355 ml). I am not following precise Starbucks standards, though if you must know it’s properly one shot of espresso, about .75 oz syrup (25 oz per 4 oz liquid capacity).

milk

espresso

vanilla syrup

your favorite caramel sauce

In a regular-sized coffee mug, add vanilla syrup and steamed milk. Top with

milk foam and add freshly brewed espresso through the foam. Drizzle with

caramel sauce.

Iced Caramel Macchiato

Same ingredients, plus some small ice cubes and (optional) whipped cream

In a pint glass or iced tea glass (we’re assuming 16 oz), add vanilla syrup

and fill about 3/5 of the way with cold milk. Add ice almost to the top and

pour espresso (2 shots would be typical) over the top. If you’ve done it right,

the espresso will mix in only about halfway down without stirring. If adding

whipped cream, add it here.
