Espresso and Cappuccino


Brandied Cappuccino 5 (1)

Cappuccino goes well with liqueurs. Here’s a very powerful combination. If you want to reduce the alcohol and calorie content, simply boil liqueurs for about ten minutes. Add to espresso, pour into heat-proof glasses and top with whipped cream.


Authentic Espresso or Cappuccino 5 (2)

for this recipe, you’ll need an electric or top-of-the-stove espresso maker. Later in the book, you’ll see a photo of the authentic espresso maker given to me by son, Bob, during his year-long art history study in Florence, Italy. His Italian family used one like this on a daily basis.
