If you’re in need of a pick-me-up and want to try something stronger than your regular coffee based Frappuccino, try it with espresso shots instead!

Most people will argue that espresso shots taste stronger than the Frappuccino roast that is used in all of Starbucks coffee based frappuccinos.

However, keep in mind that adding hot espresso to a cold drink changes the consistency of the Frappuccino quite a bit. It’s all about personal preference but we love trying new things!

The sweet caramel flavor and walls in this caramel pick-me-up offset the bitterness of the ristretto shots wonderfully.

Here’s the recipe:

  • Vanilla Bean Frapuccino
  • Add caramel syrup (1 pump tall, 2 grande, 3 venti)
  • Caramel walls
  • Add ristretto shots (1 tall, 2 grande and 3 venti)
  • Top with whipped cream and caramel drizzle
