In order to make a caramel latte, you will need:
- Espresso or strongly brewed coffee
- Caramel sauce or syrup
- Milk (whole, 2%, or skim)
- Foam (optional)
To make the espresso or coffee, you can use a stovetop espresso maker, an automatic drip maker, a French press, or even instant espresso.
If you are using store-bought caramel sauce or syrup, simply follow the directions on the packaging.
To make foam, pour milk into a stainless steel pitcher and microwave on high for about 1 minute, until it is hot but not boiling.
Froth the milk by shaking the pitcher vigorously or using an immersion blender.
Pour the coffee or espresso into a mug, add the caramel sauce or syrup to taste, and top with the milk foam.
If you want to make your own caramel sauce or syrup, here is a recipe:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar and water.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves. Raise the heat to high and bring it to a boil.
Boil without stirring for about 5 minutes, or until the syrup turns a deep amber color.
Remove from the heat and carefully stir in the cream and vanilla extract (the mixture will bubble up).
Let cool before using.
