Previously, I showed you how easy it is to make an iced cafe au lait in a mason jar. If you haven’t read that post, you’re missing out! To see it, click here. This stuff is awesome!

It’s really hot here in Houston so this is the perfect time for iced coffee. I’m going to share how I prepare my favorite iced coffee drink, iced macchiato. I always try to keep a bottle of this coffee concentrate in the refrigerator so that I can prepare macchiatos any time I want. For cafe au laits, I used, French Market or Cafe Du Monde coffee because they have chicory in the grounds. However, for macchiatos I use an Italian roast or espresso roast coffee. Feel free to experiment with your favorite coffee and see what you like the best.

Okay, let me get right to it. You will need ice, chilled coffee concentrate, cold milk, and caramel sauce. This is how you prepare it:

Put some ice in cup.

Pour some milk (about two-thirds of the glass).

Slowly pour the coffee, gently over the ice (about one-third of the glass).

Isn’t it a beautiful thing? I love how the coffee swirls barely staining the milk with caramel hues honoring its name, “macchiato”, which means, “marked” or “stained” in Italian. Now all that you have to do is drizzle some of your favorite caramel sauce on top.

Stir…

and enjoy.

Easy isn’t it? Please…I insist, try this at home.

Well, I’m off to some new adventures and to sip on this refreshing coffee. Drop a line with any comments or feedback. It’s much appreciated! Enjoy your week!
