Ways to customize Starbucks Raspberry Caramel Macchiato at Starbucks

Typically, 2% whole milk is used in this macchiato. However, you can ask the barista to use any other milk you prefer. We recommend asking for dairy milk instead of plant-based milk for a richer and creamier macchiato.

Depending on how rich you want the raspberry flavors, ask for how many raspberry syrup pumps you’d like.

Also, depending on how caffeinated you want your macchiato, ask the barista for more or fewer espresso shots in the drink.

You can also customize the amount of caramel drizzled on top of your macchiato.
