Recipe: Cafe Sheccerato
This entry was posted on May 22, 2009.
It's true, the thermometer hits about 65F in Seattle and everyone starts to strip. We also start sipping on the frozen drinks as if we're swimming up to the side of a Acapulcan pool bar. One of our favorites in the coffee realm is the Cafe Sheccerato, which is a pretty simple drink that has the potential to be basically whatever your tastes desire.
We pull a couple of long espresso shots (run it for about 45 seconds) and then poor it over a full glass of ice. We love throwing in a little mint sometimes to add to the refreshment, but if you pull the shots just right and they're nice and sweet, adding anything isn't necessary at all. The shots will melt the ice a bit and it's quite delicious. You can also combine the two in a martini shaker and shake them up to put a frothy spin on it if you'd like. Whichever way you do it, we think the Cafe Sheccerato tastes like summer.
