One of my favorite drinks is a mudslide and I have tried to like White Russians, but..they're not my favorite. Enter the Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Milk drink (I mean, is it a milk, is it a cream, is it a beverage. or all of the above. what do I know?) The caramel twist of the popular drink has now become my go to. I have made it a couple of different versions already and decided this is my top pick.
For now at least;)
I chose to make ice cubes from the caramel macchiato so to lessen the taste of it being watered down. It is really tasty and I think it only enhances the flavor.
4 oz SCM milk
1 1/2 oz Kahlua
1/2 oz whipped vodka
crushed oreos (optional)
Dip the rim of the glass in some milk and then rim it in the crushed oreos. Fill with coffee cubes. Pour in the Kahlua and vodka first and then pouring in the SCM milk. I prefer to stir it and sometimes I even add a little cream, this is only bc I prefer a creamier taste. And I'll be honest...I usually double this recipe, but you know, for work nights and all, we'll leave it like it is.
I will also note this is a very sweet drink and so you may want to use regular vodka to cut down on the sweetness a tad.
I will also note that this freezes quite well if you only use 1 oz total of the Kahlua.
Very delicious. I promise!
