The Holy Grail of Coffee: Caffe Shakerato
Recipe Type: Drinks
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 1
Freshly ground espresso shaken over ice and poured into a martini glass.
  • 2 tablespoons ground espresso coffee. (I use a coffee brewer called an Aeropress. It’s an amazing little gadget you can get on Amazon for coffee nerds like me. I grind fresh beans into espresso fineness, and steep them into this brewer. It’s a good weekend “meditative” thing to do when you’re not rushing out the door to work.).
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 ice cubes
  1. Brew espresso. Combine into a salsa jar or martini shaker with 2 teaspoons sugar and 2 cubes of ice. Shake vigorously while doing a little dance. Pour drink into martini or champagne glass. It should have a thick foam on top of the glass (which is the best part!). Enjoy cold.
