Caffé Sciaccherato

Caffé Sciaccherato means “shaken coffee” and is the Italian equivalent of an iced coffee or “blended latte.” Even when it gets hot outside, Italians still have their espresso – but they simply cool it down with some ice! Like many espresso drinks you can have this with or without milk, and sweetened, or not.

Prepare one or two shots of espresso either in an espresso maker or with a “mocha pot.”

Sweeten the coffee as you like it.

Add milk (optional) – not too much, as this is considered a small drink

Combine the coffee mixture with 3 or 4 large cubes of ice. Shake well (a true Italian will use a cocktail shaker, but a jar
with a lid works too) pour into a glass, keeping the ice in the drink shaker. It should be foaming on top.
