1/4cupdark brown sugar
ice cubes to fill 3/4 glass
1cupmilk(regular, skim, almond or coconut milk)
In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add sugars and water, stir until sugar is melted. Add cinnamon sticks and allow syrup to simmer for 10 minutes over low heat. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla extract. Pour into an air-tight jar or bottle and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months. I leave the cinnamon sticks in the syrup when stored but you can remove them if you like.
Fill glass with ice almost to the top.
Pour cinnamon syrup into the bottom of your glass.
Pour milk over the ice.
Pull espresso shots and pour slowly over the milk.
Prep time includes making the homemade cinnamon syrup.
