Shakerato — shaken not stirred

Place a double shot of espresso into a cocktail shaker with ice.
Shake until frothy and rich, then serve in a cocktail glass and sprinkle shaved chocolate on top.

(this can also be served with a dash of your favourite liquor for a more M-rated coffee experience!).

Bianco Nero — sooo cool

Pull a traditional long black (ie: double shot of espresso) then freeze as ice cubes.

Place 2 espresso cubes into a glass and pour chilled milk over the top.

As the cubes melt, the full-bodied flavour is released into the milk.

Iced Cappuccino ­—the ultimate evening cocktail

Place a double shot of espresso, a teaspoon of sugar, a teaspoon of fresh cream, a shot of Kalhùa, and 5 or 6 ice cubes into a blender. Blend for 10 – 15 seconds or until the ingredients are combined.

Pour into a cocktail glass and garnish with chocolate shavings for the ultimate evening cocktail.
