Ingredient Notes

Starbucks Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew Copycat ingredients.

  • Cold brew
    Use store-bought or homemade cold brew coffee for this recipe. Use my foolproof cold brew recipe which makes 4-5 cups of cold brew at a time. You can also make cold brew using Starbucks Cold Brew Pitcher Packs.
  • Vanilla syrup
    I’m using my homemade vanilla syrup which is super easy to make at home with just 3 ingredients, but you can always use Starbucks vanilla syrup by purchasing it directly at a Starbucks location. (If they have enough in stock, they can sell it to you for about $14.) You can also buy it online but it’s double the cost. The vanilla syrup is used in the cold brew and the Sweet Cream.
  • Half & half
    Starbucks uses heavy cream and 2% milk to make their Sweet Cream but I’m using a shortcut by using half & half.

Expert Tips

  • The vanilla syrup and the cold brew can be made ahead of time but keep them separate until the drink is ready to be assembled.
  • Add as much Sweet Cream you like to make it creamy and sweet.
  • Cold brew can be made using any kind of coffee you like from light to dark roast, but stick with Starbucks Cold Brew if you want the flavor as close to the original.
  • To make homemade Sweet Cream using the recipe Starbucks uses, make it with 6 ounces of heavy cream, 3 ounces of 2% milk, and 1 ounce of vanilla syrup. I use a shortcut of using half & half (equal parts heavy cream and milk) instead of heavy cream and milk.
  • At Starbucks, it’s common to order this drink with extra sweet cream, extra vanilla syrup, or both.
