This Starbucks dupe is definitely one you are going to want to be making weekly! I love going to Starbucks and other coffee shops to get an iced coffee, but they are so expensive that it adds up quickly. To save some money but still conquer that craving, I have been experimenting making my own syrups for my iced coffees! This brown sugar syrup is so delicious for making brown sugar shaken espressos. I just buy the Starbucks espresso from the refrigerated section of my local grocery store, but you can definitely brew your own. Then all you need is some oat milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract!
