Starbuck serves this drink in a layered fashion and it looks pretty cool. You have to stir it before sipping to blend in all the flavors.
Pour vanilla syrup into a tall serving glass.
Fill the glass ¾th with ice.
Pour chilled milk and top it with espresso (or strongly brewed coffee).
There is no need to cool down the espresso (or the coffee). Add it to the glass soon after brewing for best-tasting coffee.
Add some more ice cubes to fill the glass. Now drizzle caramel sauce on top and serve the coffee immediately with a stirrer. Stir well before drinking.
You can also top the glass with whipped cream and drizzle with more caramel sauce before serving.
If kept for a longer time, this drink gets washed out as the ice cubes start to melt. To retain the coffee flavor for a longer time, freeze some brewed coffee in ice cube trays. Use these coffee cubes in place of regular ice.To make vanilla sugar syrup, you just need three ingredients, 1 cup water 1 cup sugar ½ tablespoon vanilla extractIn a medium saucepan, add water and sugar. Boil on medium-high heat until the mixture thickens. This will take about 8 to 10 minutes. Once done, remove the pan from the heat. Add in vanilla extract and cool it down to room temperature. Store it in a clean glass jar for 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
