With the closing of most coffee shops, we’ve missed out on many of our favorite drinks. Although coffee itself is enough to give us the fix we need, there’s a little enjoyment in having those iced and flavored drinks we love to enjoy with the changing of the seasons.
One of the most sought after drinks of Spring/Summer is the Iced Caramel Macchiato. What could taste better than coffee, vanilla, and delicious caramel syrup? Literally nothing. Okay, I am sure there are a few things but this definitely hits the top of the list.
“One of our all-time, most popular beverages is the Iced Caramel Macchiato. We combine our rich, full-bodied espresso with vanilla-flavored syrup, milk and ice, then top it off with caramel drizzle for an oh-so-sweet finish.” – Starbucks
