Fake Caramel Macchiato
Another St*rbucks spin-off creation of mine. So called "Caramel Macchiatos", in my view, are really just fancy lattes that are richer and tastier than plain ol' flavored lattes, thanks to the use of caramel sauce instead of a thinner syrup.
My recipe makes a 16 ounce latte.
1/2 oz Vanilla Syrup
Squeeze bottle of Caramel Sauce (such as Torani)
1 C Low Fat Milk
2 shots Espresso
Add 1/2 oz vanilla syrup to 1 cup of milk and steam until 160-180 degrees and foamy (if desired).
Pour milk, holding back foam, into large 16 oz capacity mug.
Pull 2 shots espresso and add to mug.
Top drink with remaining foam. Drizzle with desired amount of caramel sauce. Serve hot.
