It might still be freezing cold in most of the country (Melbourne), but we’re starting summer anyway, Italian style. When the weather heats up, Caffe Shakerato is the drink of the season. It’s a cinch to make – all you need is ice cubes, cold espresso coffee and sugar syrup (2:1 sugar water ratio)
Since its invention in the 1960s, Caffe Shakerato has been a bar favourite in Italy, where 40°C heat is no excuse to skip your daily caffeine fix.
So grab a mason jar, call over some friends, add a shot of Baileys or vanilla liquor and get those summer parties started.
We’re using Gimoka’s Deciso blend for this one. Its dark roast and bitter cacao notes provide the perfect balance to the sweet sugar syrup.
