About This Salted Caramel Cold Brew

An iced version of a salted caramel latte, this refreshing drink is made with cold brew coffee (although you can use any strong coffee) and store-bought caramel sauce.

  • Cold brew coffee is combined with salt and caramel sauce (it’s too involved to make at home so it’s much easier to just buy it). The drink is then topped off with fluffy cold foam.
  • The recipe uses cold brew coffee but it can be made with strong coffee from a coffee machine, Nespresso, or Keurig.
  • What makes this drink a latte is the addition of cold foam which is just cold milk made into foam using a French press. See how quick and easy it is to make at home!

Ingredient Notes

  • Cold brew coffee
    Super easy to make at home and all you need is a few hours to get smooth, delicious coffee made in the refrigerator as you sleep. See how to make it foolproof with my cold brew guide.
  • Caramel sauce
    It’s way too much work to make caramel sauce at home from scratch so a tasty store-bought version is a huge timesaver. Use higher quality caramel sauce for a better, richer tasting drink.
  • Sea salt
    This salt is a MUST to elevate this drink to another level. I use this salt on everything and I cannot go back to regular table salt after tasting this one and I don’t think you’ll be able to either. Yes, it’s that good.
  • Milk
    Any milk you like.
  • Ice
    The ice keeps the drink cold and helps to layer the cold foam on top.

Coffee Options

  • Cold brew coffee
    The easiest and best way to make this drink at home. Use my method to make it perfect.
  • Strong coffee from coffee machine
    Make slightly strong coffee than you usually make by adding 1/2 -1 tablespoon more ground coffee to make a cup. Cool it down in the refrigerator (at least one hour) or in the freezer (15 minutes).
  • Nespresso or Keurig
    Use a pod or capsule to make a cup of coffee then cool it down in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • Espresso
    Pull 2 shots of espresso and add 3/4 cup cold water to make a cup.

Questions You May Have

What airtight containers can I use to shake the ingredients together?

A cocktail shaker is what I used to make this drink but a jar with a tight lid or a water bottle will work too.

Is there caffeine in this drink?

Yes, there’s caffeine in cold brew coffee.

I don’t have a French press. How else can I make cold foam.

A handheld milk frother will also work to make cold foam by adding air to the milk but it won’t be as frothy as making it in a French press.

What kind of coffee should I use?

A dark roast like French roast is better than a lighter roast for this recipe.
