When temperatures soar, a cold coffee drink is a refreshing alternative to the usual hot black coffee. “Caffe’ Shakerato” is the most popular Italian coffee shake, a go-to cold coffee which is classically prepared by shaking together a few ice cubes, 3 teaspoons of sugar and one or more cups of espresso (to taste), preferably at room temperature.
Since I stop making myself a moka (British habits are taking over!) and I only own an instant coffee powder, I customized the recipe by adding a bit of milk and used a blender instead of a shaker. Lovely result: this coffee shake is as scrumptious as the one I used to have in the best Italian bars! Refreshing and energizing, with a creamy texture without containing any cream, it is absolutely my favorite non alcoholic summer drink. Make this coffee for your guests. I’m sure they’ll be amazed by it.
