One More Thing


I discovered an amazing coffee drink that has instantly become a new favorite of mine. It's called a "shakerato" and apparently it's a big hit in Italy where (naturally) it was invented. You take a freshly pulled shot of espresso, pour it into a metal cocktail shaker over a few ice cubes and add some sugar syrup or fine sugar crystals, and shake until the ice is melted. Then you pour it into a glass and enjoy. The coffee develops a great 'crema' from the shaking and the whole concoction is very refreshing. Try it, you'll like it!
