Brown Sugar Oat Milk Espresso Shaker {Starbucks Copycat}

I love Starbucks coffee and all of their choices, but I don’t love the long lines. So, I decided to replicate one of their newer drinks, the Brown Sugar Oat Milk Espresso Shaker iced drink. It has just enough sweetness from the brown sugar simple syrup. And, the drink is topped off with plant-based oat milk.

Brown Sugar Oat Milk Espresso Shaker Ingredients

Brown Sugar Simple Syrup: Use light or dark brown sugar to make the simple syrup that will be added to this espresso shaker drink.

To make the syrup: it’s just brown sugar and water at a 1:1 ratio. (Such as 1/2 cup brown sugar to 1/2 cup water.) Add to pan and heat until it boils, then remove from heat. After the syrup has cooled, store it in an air-tight container, in the refrigerator, for up to 2 weeks.

Cinnamon: Just a half teaspoon of cinnamon is all you need to help flavor this drink. Plus, cinnamon is a spice that is full of health benefits!

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.

Oat Milk: Oat Milk joins other popular plant-based milk like soy, almond, and rice milk. It has a creamy texture and is made by blending water and oats, then straining the liquid. Store-bought oat milk has about the same amounts of vitamins and minerals when compared with cow’s milk.

Before you can mix the drink, make the brown sugar simple syrup. With equal parts brown sugar and water, it’s very simple (hence, the name) to get it made. In a small saucepan, heat up the water to just below boiling. Add the brown sugar and continue to heat until all the sugar crystals have dissolved. Set it aside to cool.

When ready, in a large shaker filled with ice, add the brown sugar simple syrup, cinnamon, and espresso. (I made my drink with 3 shots of espresso, but you can make it with more or less, depending on how much caffeine you need that day.) Shake the ingredients together until well blended. Finally, pour the mixture in a glass over ice. Top it with oat milk and enjoy! 

If you don’t have a shaker, simply use a to-go coffee mug with a solid lid. Fill the mug up with ice, just like in a shaker, add all the ingredients, cover the opening mouth part, and get shakin’! When you are ready to pour the contents into the glass, just open up the mouth opening and pour. The lid should hold the ice back so you just get the chilled beverage.

It’s smooth, creamy, has just the right amount of sweetness, and has the perfect coffee kick. Definitely worth trying!
