cold creamy italian coffee what is shakerato

It's time for SHAKERATO

Shakerato is the very Italian word that comes from thr English word shake ...

It is a cold coffee shake. Some Italian bars pour it into a chilled martini glass or champagne glass. It is so very refreshing as the summer heat begins and intensifies through September here in Italy. I prefer mine "senza zucchero,"  without sugar, which will make a little less creamy drink but just as good. If you have a martini shaker you can make it at home as well.

Brew your espresso and let it cool for a couple minutes then add a lot of ice to your shaker, pour in the coffee and sugar syrup as desired, then cover and shake vigorously for  2 to 3 minutes. Pour into a chilled glass and enjoy the creamy smooth ice cold coffee. Your can add flavoured sugar syrups as well. . . .  caramel, chocolate, hazelnut.

Elegant, cool and uplifting in the summer heat.

Try this classic Italian premium coffee from  Lavazza or Illy
