1double espresso shotabout 60 mL (see recipe notes)
150mLoat milkabout 150 mL - 200 mL (I prefer Earth's own barista oat milk)
Ice to top the drink
Brown sugar syrup (makes about[adjustable] ¾[/adjustable] cup - [adjustable]1[/adjustable] cup)
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan, and heat over medium heat while whisking, to combine.
After the sugar is fully dissolved, continue to whisk and bring the water to a boil.
Boil the sugar syrup for a few minutes until the syrup is slightly thickened. This can take anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes, depending on your stove. So keep an eye on the syrup as it cooks, or it might become too thick.

Place the espresso in a jar along with the brown sugar syrup. Add a couple of ice cubes, and close the jar with the lid and shake the mixture to mix and cool down. Alternatively, you can simply stir the mix with some ice to cool it down. This will also reduce dilution of the drink from melted ice.
Add the espresso mix into a glass, and add as much (or as little) ice as you like.
Top it with oat milk. You can choose to shake the oat milk separately before adding it to the drink to create some foam, but this is optional.
Serve with a straw so that the drink can be stirred before drinking.
Notes on the espresso
If you don't have an espresso machine, you can make this drink with strongly brewed coffee.You can either make strong coffee with an aeropress. Or you can use ½ cup of very strongly brewed coffee.If you're using brewed strong coffee, then make sure to allow the coffee to cool down before using. Place it in the freezer so that it can cool down rapidly, or in the fridge overnight.
To prevent dilution of the drink
Don’t shake the espresso mix with ice, since this will melt more of the ice. Instead, stirring the mix with ice will cool it down while keeping more of the ice intact.Since this recipe provides a recommended amount of milk per drink, you can add as little or as much ice as you like, followed by the recommended milk measurement. The more ice you add, the more diluted you drink will be and vice versa.You can also adjust the amount of sugar syrup and the amount of milk that you add.
