Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso Latte

Iced Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso Latte

Rachel Riesgraf
My absolute favorite latte to make at home! Incredibly delicious and only lightly sweetened. All you need is 5 ingredients and 5 minutes to make an Iced Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso Latte. I also share my secret to making the best latte at home without a fancy espresso machine! You're going to be obsessed with this latte.

Servings 1 drink


  • 1 ½ tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons boiling hot water
  • 1-2 shots espresso
  • ½-3/4 cup milk


  • Brown Sugar Syrup: To a jar with a lid, add the brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla then pour in the hot water. Shake with the lid on until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Pour the espresso into the jar with the syrup. Top with ice and shake until chilled and frothy.
  • Strain the brown sugar syrup and espresso into a tall glass filled with fresh ice.
  • If desired, use a frother to froth the milk, then pour the milk into the glass. Garnish with a sprinkle of brown sugar. Cheers!


Make ahead: Double, triple or quadruple the brown sugar syrup and store covered in the fridge. When you're ready to make a latte, give the syrup a good shake because the brown sugar clumps together as it cools, then continue making the espresso as stated above.
