For a coffee lover like me, the day never really begins until the first cup of coffee, often followed by another mid-morning espresso and perhaps coffee after lunch. That’s why I love Sorrento Cafe’, which combines two of my favorite beverages, coffee and limoncello!
Sorrento Cafe’ is more of a sweet treat than a drink itself, thus perfect for Happy Hour. The strength of the coffee is slightly offset by the fruity, zesty aromas of the Rometti limoncello and the orange-flavored-Grand Marnier. To top it off, the airy sweetness of the whipped cream elevates the drink by giving it richness, both in flavor and consistency.
This drink is perfect while reading a book, catching up with a friend, watching tv, as a mid-afternoon break or after dinner, and if accompanied by chocolate pastries (chocolate pairs very well with both coffee and citruses) it will taste even better!
