This cold Italian coffee drink is similar to iced coffee, only better.
A shakerato is an Italian iced coffee, but instead of pouring coffee over ice and drinking straight away like we do in the US, it’s shaken vigorously to create a foam on top‚Äî and the more foam the better! In Italy, it’s not uncommon to get a cup with half foam, half coffee. In fact,t he foam is what makes it so refreshing.
Traditionally, baristas use a metal cocktail shaker to make them extra frothy and cold but really, you can use two cups or containers you have on hand to shake them up. If you need an extra jolt, use espresso instead of cold coffee, and to sweeten it up, I like to add in a little chocolate syrup. Cin cin!
