Brown Sugar Oat Milk Espresso Shaker is a Starbucks copycat iced drink made with brown sugar simple syrup, cinnamon, espresso, and oat milk.
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.
