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!
- 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.
Any milk you like.
The ice keeps the drink cold and helps to layer the cold foam on top.

Pull 2 shots of espresso and add 3/4 cup cold water to make a cup.
Questions You May Have
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.
Yes, there’s caffeine in cold brew coffee.
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.
A dark roast like French roast is better than a lighter roast for this recipe.
