I have been tweaking my recipe for homemade vanilla syrup and I am finally satisfied with my most recent result. That means I have been on a caramel macchiato kick since I figured out the basics of how they are made. 
Vanilla Syrup
Whipped Cream
Caramel Sauce
Pour 2 Tablespoons of vanilla syrup into the bottom of a coffee mug and add 10oz. of 2% milk.
Microwave for 45-60 seconds.
Remove from the microwave and using an Aerolatte wand, froth the milk created microbubbles.
Prepare 3oz. of espresso and pour over frothed milk.
Almost there.....notice if you properly froth the milk the foam does not dissipate. This is a good sign. 2% milk froths the best.
If you are a lover of whipped cream like myself and are unable to drink a latte without it, this would be the time to add it.
Add 1 Tablespoon of caramel over the whipped cream. I found it tastes best with homemade caramel sauce in place of a store bought caramel sauce topping. Don't worry, there are several ways to make it, one being baking a can of sweet condensed milk with vanilla.
Now you know how to make a great tasting caramel macchiato at home. Now if I could snag a package of robbins egg blue coffee cups from Party City I will be on my way...

Have you ever tried to make it using real vanilla beans and not vanilla extract? It may send you into nirvana.

KingSparta-not yet, going to try the vanila beans this summer when I get some from my hometown local store I visit each year.
