Ingredients for making an iced Honey latte - Honey, Coffee, Milk, and ice cubes

Whole Milk – Whole milk has a nice thick and creamy texture and is always the first choice for classic lattes. However, if you need lactose-free or plant-based milk, those also work wonderfully in this recipe. If opting for non-dairy, oat milk is especially nice with the flavors of espresso and honey.

Honey – Honey is an awesome coffee sweetener because it adds extra complexity compared to sugar or other powdered sweeteners. Use your favorite brand of local or commercial honey. You can even use raw honey to add sweetness and subtle floral flavors to this amazing iced latte.

Espresso – You really cannot make a great latte without great espresso and that starts with the beans. Try to select an espresso blend with well-rounded tasting notes that include flavors like cherry, chocolate, wood, and nuts. T

ry ordering a doppio or Americo from your favorite cafe to get a feel for the flavor of straight espresso and to help you find a roast you might like. Once you have your favorite blend, grind it on the extra-fine or espresso setting.

Cubed Ice – You cannot have an iced latte with the ice! To save your latte from becoming too watery as you sip, choose large cubes of ice because larger cubes melt more slowly.

How To Make Iced Honey Latte From Scratch

Prepare to Serve – Get your glasses ready with ice. Remember a gorgeous clear glass really makes this drink look its best!

Brew the Coffee – Use your favorite method to make the espresso.

Bring it Together – Pour the coffee and then milk over ice. Be sure to pour the espresso right after brewing, this ensures you get all the yummy fresh espresso flavor in every sip.

Top it Off – Finish them with a loving drizzle of honey to add some extra sweetness and then serve the iced lattes with a straw or spoon to stir up the settled honey.

Important Barista Tips

  • Ending with the honey drizzle helps to infuse this delicious drink wonderfully with sweet honey!
  • If you mix this drink with non-dairy milk, try to find a barista-style product. This type of non-dairy milk is enriched with vegetable fats, like sunflower oil, which makes it thicker and richer in iced lattes.
  • Honey milk is said to be a great stress reducer so mix this latte up after a busy day to help you relax and unwind!
  • Filtered water does not calcify the coffee equipment, giving the coffee a much better taste.

Products You’ll Need

  • Measuring Tools – Grab some measuring spoons or a measuring shot glass to nail the ratios for this sip!
  • Espresso Maker – If you are a serious coffee lover it may be time to invest in a reliable way to brew espresso at home. While a countertop espresso machine is every home barista’s dream, there are several great less expensive options out there. Try an Aeropress, Moka Pot, French Press, or even a drip coffee brewer to make cafe-quality espresso at home.
  • Serving Glasses and Straw – One delicious thing about this iced latte is how great it looks in a glass. You can serve this simple coffee in any tumbler, cup, or glass you like, but in a clear glass, you are able to see the layers of coffee and honey. That’s sure to make your mouth water! Just be sure to have a reusable straw or spoon on hand for stirring up the delicious honey after it settles.
