Spiked Iced Caramel Vanilla Latte

If you like this recipe, please share!

Spiked iced vanilla caramel lattes are the perfect after dinner drink for a hot summer evening.

Next up in the summer cocktail series is a coffee drink, that’s perfect for after dinner. When we think of cocktails we usually think something fruity like my spiced piña coladas or my sparkling bay breeze. This week I decided to go for an after dinner cocktail with a spiked iced caramel vanilla latte.

Often when I host a dinner party, I offer coffee with dessert. It wasn’t long ago I thought why not offer coffee AS dessert. Dessert isn’t always necessary. There I said it! I know, many “leave room for dessert”, but sometimes it’s just too much. A coffee drink, such as this spiked iced caramel vanilla latte, with just a hint of sweetness and a touch of vodka does the trick.

Finish off your evening with an iced vanilla caramel latte. Perfect for a hot night.

If you prefer your coffee sweeter, you can start with my caramel coffee and make the drink from there. This recipe is easy to adjust the number of servings, you can make more coffee or use smaller mugs. You can also omit the vanilla vodka for the designated driver. Substitute ½ to 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract in place of the vanilla vodka. Start with a little and add more if necessary.

Yes-- coffee as the dessert is perfect! Especially after a big meal, there is really no need for a heavy dessert. Love this idea!
