caffè in ghiaccio

Recipe by
Marion Wilting

This is a recipe from the Italian region Salento, which is the heel of the Italian boot. You have to use ice cubes fresh from the freezer, i.e. "dry" cubes, or the coffee will water down too much. Make sure you add the sugar to the boiling hot coffee in the cup, stir well and then pour it over the dry ice cubes.
