Make Your Own Starbucks Inspired Iced Caramel Macchiato


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
