Caramel macchiato

Although making a caramel macchiato seems more difficult than preparing a cappuccino, or a latte, there is no reason to believe that you won’t be able to do this caffeinated beverage by yourself. Moreover, since it can help you save the $4 dollars that you would have paid on a Starbucks macchiato, making your own cup of steaming hot caffeine can be very practical. Here are the ingredients that you’ll need to prepare yourself a delicious treat: 6 ounces of steamed milk, 6 ounces of brewed coffee, 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of artificial vanilla flavoring, 3 teaspoons of caramel syrup, and whipped cream.

What to do:

  • Brew 3 tablespoons of coffee to 6 cups of water to get a strong coffee, but mix the vanilla with the coffee grinds first, because it will infuse during the brewing process, allowing you to prepare a caramel macchiato with a delicious flavor.
  • Use a glass to combine the coffee, the hot milk, and the caramel syrup, and add sugar considering that the caramel will add sweetness to the drink, too.
  • The last thing that you need to do is top the macchiato with whipped cream and serve warm.
