This is the quintessential summer beverage in Italy. I enjoyed this the first time I went to visit my famiglia in Lazio when I was 12 and I have enjoyed them every summer here at home ever since as well as on every summer return trip to lovely Italy. —cucina di mammina

In This Recipe
Place about 3 to four cubes of ice in the shaker. Add the espresso and milk and seal tightly.
Vigorously shake this mixture until the shaker begins to ice over and the liquids thicken.
Pour the contents into a large glass (strain out the ice cubes.)
With a spoon, top the caffe and milk mixture with all the foam from the shaker and serve immediately.
