Cafe Romano

As far as dessert drinks go, the Cafe Romano is one of those excellent mixes of liqueurs and cream that have been around a long time but are often overlooked.

Part of the reason this drink doesn't fly in the U.S. is the use of sambuca and our hesitance to mix with it, particularly with Kahlua. But the Cafe Romano is evidence that this works. Even people who hate the taste of anise (which is most Americans) have to admit that this drink mellows and improves the bitterness of sambuca.
  • 1 oz. white sambuca
  • 1 oz. coffee liqueur
  • 1 oz. half and half
Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
