On the days that coffee, tea and hot chocolate just won’t do – I make my own version of Starbucks’ Caramel Apple Spice drink. It’s easy, and the only special ingredient is the Cinnamon Dolce Syrup. You can buy it online for 10.95 plus 2.99 shipping and whatever else in taxes, but here’s a helpful little tip – if you go into any Starbucks and ask for it, if they have it they’ll sell it to you for 7.99 plus tax. Granted, you won’t get the pump, but I have successfully lived without it.
1 c apple juice (preferably not cider)
1-1.5 Tbsp Cinnamon Dolce Syrup (more or less depending on personal tastes)
Caramel ice cream topping (not the stuff that hardens up)
Heat apple juice either in microwave or over low heat on your stovetop until steaming, but not boiling. Pour into mug, add cinnamon dolce syrup and stir.
