Tutorial: How to make an Iced Caramel Macchiato

I love Caramel Macchiatos. I mean, looovvve them. However, these sweet little milky treats tend to get pricey, especially if you have been craving at least once a day. That’s almost 35-40 dollars a week. That’s too much for just a drink. So with a little kitchen ingenuity I bring you “How to make a Caramel Macchiato.”

Step 1

Gather your ingredients
-Caramel Syrup (I use Hershey’s)
-Brewed Espresso (I use the cheaper stuff in a big can. It runs about 5 dollars.
-Ice
-Milk

-You will also need a glass and a straw (The straw is necessary if you like the layer of flavors)

Step 2

-Fill the bottom of the glass with a bit of caramel. It’s really up to you how much you like. I put enough to cover up the bottom and a little more. Then turn the glass on its side and rotate the glass. You want that caramel to get on the sides of the glass.

Step 3

-Fill with your preferred amount of ice

Step 4

-Hold the glass tilted slightly to the side. You are going to pour in milk half way up the cup (or more if you prefer). Holding the glass slightly towards you prevents the ingredients from mixing and promotes layering.

Step 5

-Holding your glass tilted pour in the espresso. (I choose to make the glass 1/3-1/4 espresso.) Remember that tilting will keep the espresso from immediately mixing with the milk.

Step 6

Drizzle with more caramel. Insert straw and Enjoy!
