If you're a coffee lover, like I am, you will love this cocktail. Good anytime of the year. It's not too sweet and not too strong, with just enough punch and a great flavor. I have a tiny stove top espresso maker that one of my cousins in Italy gave me, but you can order one online for $16 on Amazon. You can just use dark roast coffee with less water than usual if you don't have espresso.
