What is a shaken espresso?

A shaken espresso is simply a drink made with espresso, sweetener, and ice tossed into a shaker or mason jar and shaken until it foams. It’s pretty fun and super easy to make!

How to make Brown Simple Syrup?

Starbucks Brown Sugar Syrup Recipe

The brown simple syrup takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and is made with 3 simple ingredients: Brown Sugar, Water, and Vanilla Extract. You simply add the ingredients to a small saucepan, stir, bring it to a simmer, then remove it from the heat and let it cool before using.

You can even make a large batch so that you can use it whenever you like! Just be sure to store it in an airtight container and keep it in the fridge.  

Ingredients needed to make starbucks copycat brown sugar oat milk shaken espresso: oat mik, brown simple syrup, cinnamon, ice, espresso, shaker.

Here’s what you need to make this Brown Sugar Oat Milk Shaken Espresso

Brown Simple Syrup: Made with brown sugar, water, and vanilla extract. You can easily double or triple the recipe to make more and leave it in the fridge so you can use it whenever you need it! If you want to make this refined sugar-free, you can try coconut sugar. I haven’t tried that yet but I’m sure it’d be delicious!

Espresso: You can use 2-3 shots of espresso OR very strong coffee. Starbucks Blonde Espresso is typically used to make this drink.

Oat Milk: Unsweetened oat milk works best. Starbucks uses Oatly Brand Oat Milk, but you can use whichever oat milk you prefer. If you want to go the extra mile, you can even make your own oat milk from scratch using my 5-minute Homemade Oat Milk Recipe!

Ice: You’ll need to fill a mason jar or shaker with ice to mix the drink. You’ll also need a bit more ice to pour the shaken drink over.

Cocktail Shaker or Mason Jar: If you do not have a cocktail shaker at home, you can use a jar with a lid or wide-mouth bottle.

This was SO good! I’ve been craving these and all the Starbucks around here are sold out of oat milk. Perfect copycat. I’d actually say it’s better than the original!
