This clones Starbucks "Low-fat Creamy Blend of Coffee and Milk" that you find in the 9 1/2-ounce bottles in most stores. Those little suckers will set you back at least a buck, but this Top Secret Recipes version costs a mere fraction of that. The recipe requires espresso, but don't worry if you don't have an espresso machine. Check out the Tidbits below for a way to clone espresso with a standard drip machine and ground coffee. 

1/2 cup fresh espresso, chilled
2 1/2 cups low-fat milk (2 percent)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon dry pectin (see Tidbits)

Combine all of the ingredients in a pitcher or covered container. Stir or shake until the sugar is dissolved. Chill and serve cold.

Makes 24 ounces (2 1/2 servings).

Tidbits: To fake espresso with a drip coffee maker and standard grind of coffee: Use 1/3 cup ground coffee and 1 cup of water. Brew once, then run coffee through the machine again, with the same grounds. Makes about 1/2 cup fresh espresso to use in the above recipe. Run a pot of water through machine, without grounds, to clean. Pectin is a natural thickener found in fruits that is used for canning. You can find it in the supermarket near the canning supplies. It is used in this recipe to make the drink thicker and creamier, and can be found in the original recipe. It does not add to the flavor and can be excluded if you don't care so much about duplicating the texture of the original. To make the "Mocha" variety: Add a pinch (1/16 teaspoon) of cocoa powder to the mixture before combining.

Wow exactly the same

I've made this half a dozen times when I just want a fix but don't want to run to the local "Bucks." The tidbit on faking expresso does do the trick but isn't quite as good as real espresso. None the less, this recipe is worth giving a try.
Exactly Perfect - With A Modification.

Change the TABLEspoon of pectin to TEAspoon and you've got the perfect recipe to fill bottles and give to friends for pennies on the dollar. A tablespoon is far too acidic and ruins the entire batch. To undo this messup if you've done it already, make another batch the same size WITHOUT pectin at all and simply mix them together, creating the proper ratio. For vanilla, add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract. For caramel, add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon of Torani caramel
