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?).


Wide Awake Coffee Co. Cold Brew Espresso Blend

Light Brown Sugar



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. 🙂


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.
