Notes & Tips

  • Cinnamon Dolce syrup tastes like sweetened cinnamon with brown sugar so my homemade cinnamon syrup is made with those ingredients. It’s super easy to make at home and costs so much less to make it than buy the Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce syrup.
  • You can buy the Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce syrup at your local Starbucks. Just ask the barista if they have any you can purchase. If they have enough in stock, they’ll sell it to you! See more Starbucks tips.
  • Starbucks makes their Cinnamon Dolce Latte with espresso and steamed milk so to get it to taste as close to the original, use an espresso machine to pull shots and to steam the milk.
