It’s hard for me to face Monday miffed when I have a Caramel Latte in front of me.
Make that a Salted Caramel Latte and I’m entering the realm of total bliss – on a Monday!
Seriously, my hat’s off to French chocolatier, Henri Le Roux, for his creation of caramel au beurre salé (salted butter caramel). There’s something so tantalizingly about the combo of sweet and salty – especially when we are talking about salted caramel – right?! Throw in some bourbon and WOWZERS!!!Now, we might not be able to start Monday off in HotLanta with an Iced Bourbon Salted Caramel Latte, but we sure can end it with one – right?!
Unlike chocolate, that I’ve had a serious love affair with before I could even pronounce it correctly, my love for caramel started later on.
You see, caramels were one of my dad’s favorite sweets. When he passed in the summer of 2014, I was helping my mom with the painful process of going through his stuff when I came across a bag of caramels. My mom would lovingly pack a plastic bag with caramels and take it with her everytime she visited my dad in the nursing home across the street, during the days before his passing. Even during his tough days, he would manage to enjoy one or two of those caramels.
That day I decided to taste one of those caramels after many years of avoiding them due to a childhood of braces and other dental shenanigans. And, well… once I tasted that caramel it was hard for me to keep ignoring it’s deliciousness.
In fact, recently, I picked up some Torani® Salted Caramel Syrup from Publix and decided to use it instead of chocolate syrup in a nightcap I like to whip up from time to time.

Getting back to this Iced Bourbon Salted Caramel Latte, instead of coffee, milk, chocolate syrup and bourbon, I subbed in a bit of the Torani® Salted Caramel Syrup and came up with the Iced Bourbon Salted Caramel Latte you see here today. Of course, I had to top mine with some whipped topping and Torani® Caramel Sauce. I’m not sure if calling it a “latte” is justifiable, but “latte” was all that came to me…
You can customize this Iced Bourbon Salted Caramel Latte, anyway you like. You can throw all the ingredients into a blender with 5-6 ice cubes and whip up a frozen Iced Bourbon Salted Caramel Latte. You could leave out the bourbon and whip up a delicious Iced Salted Caramel Latte you CAN enjoy this Monday morning. You can omit the whipped topping. You can use heavy cream for a truly luscious Iced Bourbon Salted Caramel Latte. Just don’t leave out the Torani® Salted Caramel Syrup or Torani® Caramel Sauce.
