Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Copycat Recipe



There are a few ways to get the peppermint syrup: buy a bottle directly from Starbucks, use 1 1/2 tablespoons crème de menthe, or make your own peppermint syrup using peppermint extract, water, and sugar.

Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Copycat Recipe


  1. 3 tablespoons baking cocoa powder
    3 tablespoons hot water
    1 1/2 tablespoons peppermint syrup
    4 ounces espresso
    12 ounces milk
  1. Optional:
    Whipped cream
    Red sugar crystals


  1. Combine cocoa powder and water until a smooth, thick syrup forms. Put syrup in your favorite mug.
  2. Add espresso to the mug, making sure it mixes evenly with the mocha syrup.
  3. Pour peppermint syrup into the mug and mix evenly.
  4. Steam milk (using a steamer or stovetop). Add milk and stir. If you want an iced peppermint mocha, simply skip heating the milk and pour cold milk directly into your mug and add ice.
  5. Add your whipped cream, sugar crystals, or a peppermint candy — whatever garnish you like. Enjoy!
