This drink is an absolute must try for the colder seasons ahead. Our butterscotch syrup can also be used for other drink or baking recipes! The options are endless with this incredible recipe. 
  • Shot of espresso
  • Milk of your choice (whole milk, almond milk, etc.)
  • Butterscotch syrup
  • Whipped cream (optional)

Products Used: 

Instructions:To make the Butterscotch Syrup :
You need :
  • 170g butterscotch chips (about 1 cup) (If you want to make a non-dairy version, use vegan butterscotch chips)
  • 240g cup water (about 1 cup)
  • 105g brown sugar (about ½ cup)
  • A pinch of salt
Butterscotch syrup Instructions:
  • Combine Ingredients: In a saucepan/pot, put together the butterscotch chips, water, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt.
  • Heat and Stir: Place the saucepan over medium heat and stir continuously. Keep stirring until the butterscotch chips melt completely, and the mixture turns smooth. This should take a few minutes.
  • Simmer: Once the chips are fully melted, reduce the heat to a simmer. Let it simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes while stirring constantly.
  • Cool and Store: Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the butterscotch syrup cool down to room temperature.
  • Strain (Optional): If you prefer a smoother syrup, strain it through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any remaining bits of butterscotch chips.
  • Transfer to a Container: Pour the butterscotch syrup into an airtight container or a glass jar. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
To assemble the cappuccino you need :
  • 1 x shot of espresso
  • About 6oz of the milk of your choice
  • 25g of Butterscotch syrup (you can adjust to your own taste)
  • Whipped cream (optional)
  • For a latte version you could use : 10oz of milk and 40g of syrup.
To Assemble the drink:

  1. Pull a shot of espresso
  2. Combine the Milk and the Butterscotch syrup and heat up the mixture by easier steaming it using a steam wand or in a saucepan. If you heat up the mixture over a stove top, it is better to froth the milk if you have a milk frother for a better cappuccino texture.
  3. Combine milk and shot of espresso! 
  4. If desired, top your Butterscotch cappuccino with a dollop of whipped cream and an additional drizzle of butterscotch syrup for extra sweetness.
  5. Serve and Enjoy!
