Made of only three simple ingredients—espresso, sugar and ice—the shakerato is the perfect coffee drink for a warm (summer) afternoon. With a quick shake, the coffee gets foamy and sweet…and, of course, ice cold. The measurements here are starting points. Adjust the sugar-espresso ratio to your liking and add a shot of sambuca, if you please!
