The Caramel Creme Brulee Latte is only available at Starbucks for a few months out of the year -- November through January, typically. However, rumor has it that there are other ways you can order your latte to get a very similar flavor.

Torani, the company that makes flavored syrups, says combining the French vanilla and caramel syrups will recreate the flavor, but some suggest combinations like the white mocha and toffee nut syrups can get the flavor even closer. But the best part? These syrups are available year round! That means, once you've tried these combos out, you can order this fan favorite latte any day of the year.

I love caramel drinks, and I love Starbucks. I am going to have to try this recipe soon. I love that the recipe for vanilla syrup is included. Thank you for that. I wonder is Torani caramel flavouring would work the same way the ice cream topping would. It might give a richer flavour.

Oooooh, I've always wanted to try this! I'm glad to know that I can make one whenever I want

Ooh this looks tasty! Fancy coffee drinks can get expensive, so it's nice to make these drinks at home.

Love this drink recipe! I used to work at a coffee shop, and making fancy drinks isn't as hard as it looks. I'm glad this recipe shows that!
