How to Make a Homemade Iced Caramel Macchiato

If you're a coffee lover, you know that there's nothing quite like the taste of a delicious caramel macchiato. And while you can always head to your local coffee shop to get your fix, making your own homemade iced caramel macchiato is surprisingly easy and just as tasty. Here's how to do it.


  • 2 shots of espresso
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of caramel syrup
  • Ice cubes


  1. Start by brewing two shots of espresso using your espresso machine or moka pot. If you don't have an espresso machine or moka pot, you can use strong coffee instead.

  2. Pour two tablespoons of caramel syrup into the bottom of a tall glass. You can adjust the amount of syrup to your personal taste.

  3. Fill the glass with ice cubes. Make sure to leave some room at the top for the milk and espresso.

  4. Froth the milk using a milk frother. If you don't have a frother, you can heat up the milk in a small saucepan until it starts to steam, and then whisk it vigorously until it becomes frothy.

  5. Pour the frothed milk over the ice and caramel syrup. Make sure to pour slowly and evenly so that the caramel syrup blends evenly with the milk.

  6. Pour the two shots of espresso on top of the milk. Again, pour slowly and evenly to ensure that the espresso blends well with the milk and caramel syrup.

  7. Use a spoon to gently stir the milk and espresso together.

  8. Drizzle some additional caramel syrup on top of the drink for added sweetness and flavor.

  9. Finally, grab a straw and enjoy your homemade iced caramel macchiato!

Tip: If you prefer a sweeter drink, you can add more caramel syrup to your taste. You can also use flavored syrups like vanilla or hazelnut to add variety to your drink. And if you're feeling adventurous, you can even add a sprinkle of cinnamon or cocoa powder on top for extra flavor.
