First shakerato of the season: brew how ever many shots of espresso you need, pour into a jar and sweeten to your liking; add a pile of ice cubes, screw on the lid tightly and shake it like a mad woman (or man) – the coffee should become completely cold and look rather light in colour, until you put the jar down for a moment, take a breath and see that a good portion of it turned into creamy froth now settling in a delightful layer on top.

Decant through a sieve into a proper glass to get rid of any remaining splinters of ice – a martini one would be a traditional and classy choice; or be lazy like me, run back out on the balcony with your shakerato still in the jar, fretting to be fast enough to drink up before it gets too diluted, but only until you take a first sip and with it start taking in this first warm spring sun, the scent of the last lemon blossoms and all that feels good in the world for the moment.

this one used to be a yoghurt jar – which I should return, but kinda find too cute to let go off :) but I believe Weck makes very beautiful mold jars quite like it, am just not sure if they also come with screw tops …
