Brown Sugar Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup (237 g) water
  • 1 cup (200 g) brown sugar, packed


  • 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar simple syrup, depending on how sweet you like it
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 shots blonde espresso *see notes
  • ¼ cup (60 g) oat milk


Brown Sugar Simple Syrup

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat water to just below boiling.
  • Add brown sugar. Whisk together, continuing to heat, until all sugar crystals have dissolved. Remove from heat to cool.


  • In a large shaker filled with ice, add brown sugar simple syrup, cinnamon, and blonde espresso. Shake until well mixed.
  • Pour over ice. Top with oat milk. Serve cold.


Blond Espresso: To truly copy the Starbucks recipe, I used blonde espresso, which is less bitter than regular espresso. Espresso is a concentrated form of coffee. It’s made with finely-ground coffee beans and an espresso machine that blasts boiling water through the ground coffee. It is served in shots (about 1 ounce per shot).
Espresso can be made with any kind of coffee, from light roast to dark roast. You can also buy espresso ground coffee and even espresso K-cups you can make in a Keurig coffee maker. If using regular coffee, the coffee flavor will be less intense.
