Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso
A Starbucks recreation using their exact recipe.
- There's 3 shots of espresso in this grande sized drink but it's tricky to make 3 since most machines make 2 espresso shots. BUT, 3 shots makes the drink perfect in that it's not too weak and not too strong. Try making it with 2 shots first.
- Blonde espresso can be made in an espresso machine, or a Nespresso. You can also use cold brewed blond roasted coffee if you don't have either. A strong coffee concentrate is what you want.
- Blonde espresso is a lightly roasted coffee that's smoother and less intense than their signature espresso. Blonde espresso contains more caffeine.
- Make cold brew using ground blonde roast and a cold brew maker. See my step-by-step cold brew guide to make it perfect each time.
- If you don't have blonde espresso, use your regular espresso roast. The Starbucks Iced Shaken Espresso drink is made with their signature espresso, not blonde espresso.
- Starbucks uses Oatly brand of oat milk and that's what I used in the drink. I find Oatly to be creamier and tastier than other oat milks.
- I'm using homemade brown sugar since it's so easy to make ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator.
- To customize, substitute the brown sugar syrup with another syrup like cinnamon syrup (take out the ground cinnamon in the recipe) or vanilla syrup (take out the vanilla extract in the recipe).
- For an extra hint of spice, add a pinch of nutmeg.
- Starbucks makes theirs with a splash of oat milk (about 1/4 cup) but feel free to add a little more to your liking.
- Instead of oat milk, top off your drink with cold foam! It's super easy to make at home.
- Any airtight container will work to shake the drink ingredients together. A jar with a tight lid or a wide-mouth water bottle.
