Literally “corrected coffee” in Italian, the drink is a potent pair of a fresh espresso shot and a hit of something boozy—often sweet grappa, smoky brandy, or spicy sambuca.

The two complementary little cups often arrive separately, allowing the drinker to upend the alcohol into their steaming coffee with a “Salute!,” and slug it in one or two sips. Ideally, the coffee should be the predominant flavor in the cup, simply kissed by the harder stuff for a little kick.
