Karamel Mochiatto

June 6, 2011 (Day 70) — Karamel Mochiatto

The comedian Hal Sparks once made the point that anyone drinking anything other than black coffee at Starbucks wasn’t actually drinking coffee. They were drinking a milk shake. I’d say that’s pretty accurate. But they’re damn tasty milkshakes that give you lots of energy to do stupid things in fast-forward.

This evening’s drink is a takeoff on the coffee shop staple, only with booze. Which makes it like 20,000 times better than the one you get from your local barista.

Karamel Mochiatto

  • 2 oz Sobieski Karamel
  • 1 oz heavy cream
  • 2 oz espresso coffee

Combine the ingredients in a rocks glass filled with crushed ice and stir well.

Very well balanced with a proper bit of sweet and bite from the coffee on the end. Tastes similar to a White Russian, only different.

  1. I have made my own Kahlua in the past which was very interesting but haven’t mixed espresso into a drink yet. That looks like regular coffee in the background, though.

    A macchiato is actually a 3 ounce drink made from espresso with either bubbly foamed milk on top, or poured in with smooth steamed milk like a latte, in recent trend anyway. Starbucks just stole the term rewrote the dictionary. Thanks, Starbucks!
