Copycat Brown Sugar Oatmilk Espresso from Starbucks

A few months ago I was in Minnesota, living a short distance from Starbucks. I’m now an hour away from my favorite beverage company and I’m forced to make due. I was in Sioux City, Iowa the other day when I tried an iced coffee that had me at the first sip: Brown Sugar Oatmilk Espresso. I’d never had oatmilk before, but I’m absolutely HOOKED now. The flavor is fantastic. Almost filling.

I went straight to the store and bought what I needed to make this new drink.

It took me a few tries, but this is what I came up with. And I think it’s dead-on. Thanks to the cinnamon/brown sugar taste, this is going to make you feel like you’ve bypassed summer and went straight to autumn (and what basic bitch doesn’t want that?).

Ingredients:

Wide Awake Coffee Co. Cold Brew Espresso Blend

Light Brown Sugar

Ice

Cinnamon

Torani Vanilla Syrup

Simply Oatmilk (It’s a brand)

Whipped Cream

Listen… I didn’t say this was a HEALTHY drink, but if you like sweet like me, it’s damn good. 🙂

Directions:

Heat half a cup of Wide Awake Coffee Co. Cold Brew Espresso Blend in the microwave – 30 seconds.

Add a heaping teaspoon of light brown sugar to espresso blend.

In a glass, add desired amount of ice. (I bought some Starbucks cups for the whole experience lol)

Add a quick shot of vanilla syrup.

Sprinkle ground cinnamon over the ice.

Pour the espresso/brown sugar blend over the ice.

Pour oatmilk into glass (Eyeball it. If you like your drink strong, use less oatmilk.).

Add whipped cream and sprinkle a little more cinnamon on top.

Enjoy!
