We're ramping up for a gorgeous weekend and it's times like these that inspire us to break out the cocktail shaker and amp up our booze. Check out this delicious recipe -- a twist on the classic caffe corretto.
- 1 1/2 ounces grappa
- 3/4 ounce coffee liqueur, such as Patron XO or Tia Maria
- 1 ounce chilled espresso coffee
- Whipped cream, for garnish (optional)
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add the grappa, coffee liqueur and chilled espresso. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds, then strain into a cocktail (martini) glass. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
