Courtesy of a Starbucks Barista, we bring you The Undertow!

Here’s the recipe:

  • Have 3 pumps of your favorite syrup (vanilla suggested) in a tall cup
  • Add a splash of milk
  • Add two shots of espresso floating on top

The idea is to drink it quickly so you get the kick of espresso first, then the cool milk and syrup through the middle.
