is one of those beverages that make a barista feel like a bartender.
It requires a cocktail shaker to prepare and consists of a double espresso (2 ounces), ice cubes (about 7 of them) and a simple syrup (sugar and water, 1 ounce). The ingredients are shaken together for about 15 seconds. Then strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a few coffee beans. The froth or crema from the espresso will be easily visible on top the coffee. The shakerato makes a great theatrical alternative to the iced coffee or iced latte.
