It was one of THOSE days. The twins wouldn’t sleep at all much less at the same time. Lorelai was teething and Lydia didn’t want to be put down. Ryker was home from school sick with a tummy bug, and Luke was away at a band event (LUCKY).
My husband wasn’t due back for hours and I was too tired, worn out, and if Ryker would have asked me one more time to play Fornite I don’t think I would have had it in me to say NO!
I was done, exhausted and in desperate need of caffeine.
COPIOUS amounts of CAFFEINE!
No way could I load up all the kids and drive them a half hour to the nearest Starbucks, but boy did I think hard about it.
So I became determined to make my own and it totally worked! It was heaven in a cup and since has become my go-to drink when I need a break.
What you will need
- Starbucks Double Shot Expresso (linked)
- Caramel Sauce (linked)
- Starbucks Carmel Syrup (linked)
- Starbucks Vanilla Syrup (linked)
- Milk Frother (the best ever -Link)
- Milk of choice (for best froth use no fat or 1%)

Start by filling your frother (I LOVE THIS ONE -it’s the BEST) to the line with your milk of choice then press go. If you’re using dairy, No Fat or 1% is best for the highest foam and froth.
While that’s going we’re going to get the drink ready.
Fill your cup with ice and top with Starbucks Double Shot Expresso.
Next, add in a few tsp of Starbucks Carmel Syrup. I used about 3 tsp.
Then, add in a few pumps of Starbucks Vanilla Syrup. I used 4 pumps in my glass. Really the whole thing is super sweet so use the amount you choose. Let’s not be ridiculous about it though. Although… right now that sounds pretty good.
Your milk should be done frothing, so scoop out what you want into your glass. Mix it if you want but isn’t the froth pretty. Seriously, this is the best frother and I bought it, they aren’t paying me to say it.
I wonder though why it took me so long to use it, that thing sat on my shelf almost a full year before I opened it. Insert head smack here!
Lastly, top with this Caramel Sauce, and you’re done.
See, wasn’t that the easiest drink. Now go hide from your kids (in a place you can see them or at least their hand under the bathroom door) and drink your Macchiato in peace.
I live on Grace and Copious amounts of Caffeine, as I’m sure you do too!
