Making your own Starbucks-style shaken espresso at home is an easy and affordable way to enjoy a delicious and energizing treat. With just a few simple ingredients and a few minutes of your time, you can make a delicious shaken espresso drink without ever having to leave your home.
To begin, you will need to gather the following ingredients: 2 shots of espresso, 1/4 cup simple syrup, 2 tablespoons of any flavored syrup (optional), and 1/4 cup of cold milk. Once you have all of the ingredients together, you’re ready to begin.
Start by pouring the espresso, simple syrup, and flavored syrup (if using) into a cocktail shaker. Give the mixture a good shake for about 30 seconds, until everything is well combined. This step is important because it helps to create a frothy and smooth consistency.
Next, add the cold milk and shake vigorously for another 30 seconds. This will help to create a creamy texture and will help to bring out the flavor of the espresso.
Once the mixture is finished, pour it over ice in a glass of your choice. You can also add a few drops of chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, or even a sprinkle of cinnamon to give it an extra kick.
Now you’re ready to enjoy your homemade Starbucks-style shaken espresso. Not only is it delicious, but it’s much more affordable than buying it at the coffee shop. Enjoy!
