Overall, the iced caramel macchiato is known as a refreshing and tasty coffee drink and it can completely quench your thirst, particularly in hot weather.
Fortunately, it is very easy and simple for you to make iced caramel macchiato at home. Therefore, if you want to know how, just follow my directions below.
How to make iced caramel macchiato
- 2. shots of Espresso Roast Coffee
- 1- 1.5 T Vanilla Coffee Syrup
- 1 cup Milk or almond Milk or soy milk ( depends on you but I suggest the falvor of vanilla soy)
- Squeezable caramel sauce (Coffee aisle or ice cream topping isle)
- 1/2 Cup of Ice
Step 1: Brew the espresso shots and set them aside. Even you drink this is with ice, I still suggest you use hot espresso. Because the taste of espresso which is freshly brewed is much better than a cup of espresso which was already brewed days ago.
Step 2: Make ice with a portable ice maker and fill it in your cup
Step 3: Add the vanilla syrup. You’d better add the syrup with 2 tablespoons and if you want your drink to be sweeter, just move up.
Step 4: Pour some milk on top of the syrup you’ve just added. Remember to stir the syrup together with the milk. But if you want to see some colorful visual layers, just leave them separated.
Step 5: Pour the espresso shots which are freshly brewed on the top of the milk.
Step 6: Add the caramel sauce on the top of your iced drink. In case you want to be fancy, just drizzle the caramel sauce on the sides of the cup before you add the coffee.
Finally, you can completely drink your coffee. But first, just take a moment to enjoy the colorful layers on the top the coffee and then you can take a sip. Remember that you shouldn’t wait for anything to drink it if you don’t want the espresso to fall before your first sip. After the first sip, you can totally add sugar milk if you still want it to be sweeter.

- 1 cup of water

When you have all the necessary ingredients, start with bringing the mixture of water and sugar to a boil and then stir them frequently.
