Sugar Cookie Latte Recipe

When Starbucks comes out with new holiday drinks in their seasonal menu, I am always the first person in line. Celebrating the holiday season with a festive Starbucks cup and hot coffee to start the day is my favorite!

Everyone knows that I am a Starbucks addict; I love the coffee, the baristas, the swag and the entire coffee experience. But when I can’t make it to my favorite cafe, creating a Starbucks copycat drink at home is the next best thing!

Too busy to make this right away? Pin it for later! Pin this easy recipe to your favorite board on Pinterest and it will be waiting there when you’re ready.

My good friend Rachael has been a barista at Starbucks for years and is great about giving me tips to make the perfect drink! Any Starbucks copycat recipe should always start with this Starbucks ground coffee available on Amazon.

Sugar Cookie Latte Recipe

The main ingredients in this latte recipe are espresso, milk, simple syrup and vanilla extract. You can find everything you need at the grocery store at a fraction of the cost of daily drive through.

If you don’t have an espresso maker, that’s okay! Simply use Starbucks dark roast to make a rich, strong brewed coffee instead.

How to make steamed milk at home:

One of my favorite parts of any latte, is the frothy milk. It’s easy to make steamed milk at home by simply heating the milk in the microwave and then whipping it with a milk frother or immersion blender.

I love, love, love my Keurig single serve coffee maker that comes with a built in frother. I’ve also used one of these all in one, milk frother and steamers which are a great option to have at home if you are making a lot of lattes.

How to make simple syrup:

Combine hot water and sugar in a small bowl and stir until the sugar dissolves.

  • Brewed strong coffee – I love this ground Espresso from Starbucks.

This seasonal drink would be amazing served on a lazy Sunday morning with this delicious french casserole or cinnamon bun casserole. Together they would make a lovely Christmas breakfast or brunch!

Or add a splash of homemade baileys or rum to make a hot toddy, the perfect night cap for those chilly winter evenings.

I could honestly have this Starbucks copycat latte everyday! Especially if I were to make it sugar free with a bit of homemade sugar cookie syrup.
