Roman Holiday

The great Billy Joel pleaded, don’t go changin’, and we agree! The now-classic signature drink of spring at Peace Coffee is the Roman Holiday. An expertly extracted shot of espresso muddled with candied lemon zest shaken with ice and cream. Served up in a cocktail glass, it drinks like a Sunday drive down the western coast of Italy in full bloom.

What You Will Need

  • 1 strip lemon peel (organic strongly preferred)
  • 1 tbsp raw sugar
  • 1 shot of Black Squirrel Espresso
  • 3 oz half & half
  • ice

How To Make It

  1. Combine espresso, sugar, and lemon peel in the bottom of a shaker. Muddle until the sugar is dissolved and you get a whiff of the lemon oils.
  2. Add the half & half and ice and shake well. Strain into a 6 oz glass.
  3. Garnish with lemon rind for more flare and enjoy this lemony espresso bliss.
