This Week’s Featured Cocktail: the Grappacino
Forrest Miller – Muze Staff Writer
There are those of us who really appreciate a good cocktail and there are those of us who appreciate a good coffee. Then there are those of us who like to combine the two for the ultimate fusion. If you like coffee, this week’s featured drink, the Grappacino, is definitely for you. Coffee-based cocktails are a mouthwatering choice at a bar or at home. Since they combine depressants with stimulants like caffeine, coffee-based cocktails are also a great way to confuse your system, relaxing the body while simultaneously giving the drinker a little power up.
- 1 ½ oz. grappa (Italian brandy made from the pressed leftover grapes from winemaking.)
- 2 teaspoons amaretto
- 2 teaspoons simple syrup
- 1 oz. strong espresso
- 3 coffee beans (garnish)
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the coffee beans
