The Recipe How-To

The key to making a perfect Caramel-Cinnamon Latte is the balance between the flavors of caramel and cinnamon. This recipe is easy to follow and requires simple ingredients that you can find easily in your pantry.

Ingredient List

To make this flavorful latte, you will need:

  • 1 cup hot espresso
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon syrup
  • Optional: Whipped cream and a Cinnamon stick for garnish

The Recipe How-To

  1. In a small saucepan, heat up 3/4 cups of half-and-half on medium heat while stirring occasionally.
  2. While the half-and-half is heating, mix the 2 tablespoons of caramel sauce and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon syrup together in a separate bowl.
  3. Froth the heated half-and-half with a frother or by shaking it vigorously in a jar until the cream doubles in volume.
  4. Pour your cup of hot espresso into your mug.

  6. Pour the frothed half-and-half over the top of the espresso in the mug.
  7. Add whipped cream over the top of frothed milk.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Instead of Half-and-Half, try using oat milk or almond milk to create a vegan-friendly version of Caramel-Cinnamon Latte.
  • If you prefer a stronger coffee flavor, add more shots of espresso to your drink.

Serving and Pairing

After creating this delicious warm drink, I would recommend enjoying it on its own or pairing it with some light snacks such as biscuits or muffins.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

This recipe can be stored in an airtight container for two days in the refrigerator. To warm it up, simply pour it into a microwave-friendly mug and heat it up for about 30 seconds.

Tips for Perfect Results

For the best results:

  • Make sure you heat your half-and-half on medium-low heat so that it doesn’t burn.
  • Use freshly brewed espresso to achieve a more authentic flavor.
  • When frothing your half-and-half, be careful not to over-froth as it can create a dry texture from the milk.


Q: Can I use regular milk?
A: Yes, but make sure to use whole milk or cream for a richer texture.

Q: Can I use cinnamon powder instead of cinnamon syrup?
A: Yes, you can add 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon to the half-and-half to create a similar flavor profile.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Caramel-Cinnamon Latte is best served hot and fresh. However, for those busy days, you can make the latte ahead of time and store it in an airtight container for later consumption. To reheat, simply transfer the latte into a microwave-safe mug and warm it up for about 1-2 minutes.

If you prefer to make a large batch of Caramel-Cinnamon Latte ahead of time, you can mix all the ingredients except the espresso shots and half-and-half in a 4-cup container or pitcher. You can then store this mixture in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

When ready to serve, heat the mixture in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Add strong brewed coffee or espresso shots and frothed milk or half-and-half until heated through. Serve immediately with drizzles of caramel sauce and whipped cream as desired.

Keep in mind that reheated latte may not have the same bold taste and texture as freshly made ones. Also, do not add whipped cream or toppings until just before serving as they may deflate or melt when stored in the fridge.

Want to make sure your caramel-cinnamon latte turns out perfectly every time? Here are my top tips for a flawless brew.

Firstly, ensure that your espresso shots are strong and hot. Weak or lukewarm espresso will result in a lackluster latte.

Secondly, froth the half-and-half until it is silky and smooth, as this will form the rich and creamy base of your latte.

For an extra indulgent twist, you can substitute the half-and-half with whipped cream or even make your own oat milk at home.

When preparing the caramel sauce, mix cinnamon and brown sugar into the syrup for added flavor depth. And if you’re in a pinch for time, an easy caramel-flavored syrup can be bought at most grocery stores.

For those who prefer a stronger cinnamon taste, add extra teaspoons of cinnamon syrup to heighten the spicy flavors in the drink. Additionally, garnishing with a cinnamon stick or dusting with optional cinnamon powder will add to its aroma and aesthetic.

Finally, it’s important to note that caramel lattes tend to be on the sweeter side. A good way to balance out its sugary tones is by pairing it with salty snacks like popcorn or pretzels.
