Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Syrup

It's that fabulous time of year again when iced coffee reigns supreme. In the past, I've been happy to make my own iced coffee concentrate to save some moola. In fact, I usually think it tastes better.

But then I tried the Cinnamon Dolce syrup in my iced coffee at Starbucks and I didn't know how I could ever go back to sweetened condensed milk, sugar, or any of the boring coffee syrups I have on hand.

Have you tried it? It's the perfect balance of caramelly sweetness with just a hint of spicy cinnamon. I found it so delicious that I was ready to spend $4.00 a day on Starbucks just to get my fix.

Thank goodness for copy-cat recipes!

Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Coffee Syrup

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium saucepan, add sugars and water together. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and allow to gently boil for 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in cinnamon and vanilla. 

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

To make an iced coffee:

Fill glass with ice. If using milk, I recommend filling the coffee up halfway, then adding milk and 2 TB of the syrup (or whatever sweetness tastes right, depending on the size of your glass!). If you want to be extra decadent and use 1/2 and 1/2 or heavy cream (my favorite), fill up the glass 3/4 of the way with coffee and add in 2 TB of cream + 2 TB syrup.

Then I enjoy it with my little sister. Yum!
