Caramel Apple Spice

Copycat Starbuck's caramel apple spice tastes just like the original! With a homemade sweet cinnamon syrup mixed in with hot apple juice, topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce this drink is the perfect thing to warm up with!
Servings: 5 servings


For the Cinnamon Syrup:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 TBS ground cinnamon

For the Caramel Apple Spice:

  • 60 oz apple juice or fresh pressed apple cider
  • whipped cream
  • caramel sauce


  • Combine water, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small pot and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  • Lower to a simmer and cook for 6-7 minutes until mixture starts to thicken a little.
  • Mix 1/4 cup of cinnamon syrup into every 12oz of apple juice. Or mix it all with 60oz of juice in a medium to large pot. **
  • Bring mixture to a simmer and stir well.
  • Pour drink into cups.
  • Top each cup with whipped cream and drizzle with caramel sauce over the top.


**If you decide not to make it all, the cinnamon syrup should stay good for a few weeks covered and stored in the fridge.
