Why you should try it

  • It’s a beverage free of dairy or any animal-ingredient;
  • You don’t need any fancy equipment to shake anything: hands only!
  • If you find it Starbucks version too sweet, you can halve the amount of brown sugar syrup or add as much as you’d like;
  • It was agreed that dreams are made of this drink: the combination is beyond delicious.

What's a shaken espresso?

A shaken espresso is a hand-shaken mix of espresso with milk (dairy or plant based), flavorings, and ice. Basically, it’s espresso shaken with syrup and ice cubes until lightly frothed.

This technique is modeled after mixology and cools the beverage quickly, bringing out more the flavors of the drink.

Ingredients

Oat milk. Starbucks is using milk from a Swedish oat milk producer called Oatly. But any good brand of oat milk would do, you can even use it homemade if preferred. I use unsweetened vanilla oat milk.

Espresso. Use Starbucks Blonde Espresso for your espresso shots, so you can get a drink just like the real deal.

Ice. Starbucks uses triple filtered ice cubes. While not everyone has access to a triple filter (or a filter), you can at least get ride of the chlorine in tap water before making ice. Boil it for 10 minutes or leave it in a jar overnight.

Brown sugar syrup. Different from the Blonde Espresso, you can’t buy Starbucks brown sugar syrup. But is is super easy to reproduce: brown sugar, water and a dash of cinnamon, and you get one as good as theirs.

You can also use your favorite store-bought brown sugar syrup.

How to make it

Brown Sugar Syrup

This syrup is super easy to make and keeps for a long time if stored correctly in the fridge. For making it:

  • In a saucepan, add brown sugar, water, vanilla extract and cinnamon.
  • Simmer the mixture, stirring so the brown sugar dissolves completely.
  • Take off the heat. Store it in a jar with a lid after cooled, inside the fridge.

Use a dark brown sugar for this recipe, as it gives a stronger taste because of its higher amount of molasses.

You can also mix brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract directly into hot water. Microwave mixture for 30 seconds if brown sugar doesn't completely dissolves.

I use vanilla extract to enhance the flavors, but if you don’t have it, feel free to leave it out. You’ll still get a delicious drink.

Fill mason jar with more ice. Pour a splash of oat milk, top with ground cinnamon, and serve it right away!

I don’t have an espresso maker. Can I make this drink using instant coffee?

Yes, you can! But I have to warn you: it will taste different from the real thing.

If choosing to do it with instant coffee, use 1 teaspoon of instant coffee for ⅓ cup of water. Also, choose a good quality instant coffee.

You can dissolve instant coffee directly into cold water.
