Islay Corretto

This drink combines the Italian tradition of adding few drops of grappa to an espresso (Caffè Corretto) with the peated and earthy flavours of Islay Scotch. The flavours are rounded and blended by the honey syrup whereas the lemon oil expressed on the drink contribute to make it lighter and brighter.

The resulting drink is perfect as after dinner to aid digestion, or as a nightcap to call it a day.
