CopyCat Recipe

Recipe Introduction

Taste almost like the real thing!

List of Ingredients

Whole Milk

Brewed Espresso

Vanilla syrup

Your favorite caramel sauce (Smucker’s)

Whipped Cream opt


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. Drizzle

the top with caramel and enjoy.
