|I have been tweaking my recipe for homemade vanilla syrup and I am finally satisfied with my most recent result. That means I have been on a caramel macchiato kick since I figured out the basics of how they are made.|
|Pour 2 Tablespoons of vanilla syrup into the bottom of a coffee mug and add 10oz. of 2% milk.|
Microwave for 45-60 seconds.
Remove from the microwave and using an Aerolatte wand, froth the milk created microbubbles as seen in the photo above.
|Prepare 3oz. of espresso and pour over frothed milk.|
|Almost there.....it will look like this. Notice if you properly froth the milk the foam does not dissipate. This is a good sign. 2% milk froths the best.|
|If you are a lover of whipped cream like myself and are unable to drink a latte without it, this would be the time to add it.|
|I add *cinnamon to all of my coffee drinks, totally optional of course.|
Now you know how to make a great tasting caramel macchiato at home. Now if I could snag a package of robbins egg blue coffee cups from Party City I will be on my way...
