Der Shakerato


Italy's response to the iced coffee is the Shakerato. A popular drink for refreshment in many places! If you order a Shakerato at the bar in Italy, pay attention to the pronunciation: the first A is not used as in English "a" but is actually pronounced "a"!

Preparation of the Shakerato

The preparation is very simple, all you need is:

A shaker, ice cubes, fine sugar or syrup and a double espresso

  1. | Cool the shaker in the freezer compartment
  2. | Fill the Shaker with ice cubes
  3. | Prepare a double espresso (50-60ml)
  4. | Fill the espresso in the Shaker
  5. | Add 1-2 teaspoons of sugar or syrup
  6. | Close the shaker, shake vigorously (15-30sek. to get the crema)
  7. | Open the Shaker and pour the espresso into a cocktail glass. Use a sieve to hold the ice cubes back.

Enjoy your Shakerato!
