Iced coffee in the summertime – it just can’t be beat. But do you know what really makes an iced coffee drink recipe stand out? A unique coffee syrup like Amoretti Premium Cajeta Syrup. If you’ve never experienced cajeta before, then you need to stop what you’re doing and make it happen. Seriously. Cajeta is one of our favorite desserts from south of the border.
Cajeta, a sweetened caramelized milk, hails from Celaya, Mexico. In Celaya, cajeta is traditionally made from goat’s milk and brown sugar. It’s stirred with wooden spoons in huge, heavy copper pots until it reaches a thick, caramel-like consistency.
Check out how we’ve turned this traditional Mexican dessert into a delicious Southern California iced coffee beverage.
Amoretti Cajeta Coffee
- 1 shot espresso
- 1 ½ pump Amoretti Premium Cajeta Syrup
- whole milk
This isn’t your ordinary cup of iced coffee. Here’s how it works: fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Squirt your one and a half pumps of Amoretti Premium Cajeta Syrup over the ice and pull a shot of espresso. Pour the hot espresso over the coffee syrup and ice, cap the shaker, and shake vigorously. Strain the contents into a tall Collins glass and add ice until there is about a half-inch to an inch of room at the top. Gently “float” whole milk on top of the drink, to taste. Serve with a straw.
