cappuccino shakerato, gluten free

Summer has officially been over for a few days and the temperature is slowly dropping here in Chicago.  Until the hot lattes are a must i like to hold on to my favorite Italian summer iced coffee drink- shakerato.

Shakerato is basically a sexy way of saying coffee over ice, shaken.

This Italian spin on iced coffee is basic and fun to make- go ahead and impress your friends- remember shaken not stirred!IMG 2375IMG 2371IMG 2376IMG 2382
