Below is an example of a recipe using Liquore Strega and coffee.
Pour the Strega into an attractive heat-resistant glass with a handle. Add sugar. Fill the glass to about an inch of top with strong, fresh-brewed coffee. Top with whipped cream. Garnish with grated nutmeg.
- 1 oz Strega
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- hot black coffee
- whipped cream for garnish
- nutmeg for garnish
- Irish coffee glass with handle [An Irish coffee glass holds about 8 ounces of liquid and is made of heat-resistant glass.]
Strega is considered a "digestivo" to be imbibed after a meal [A digestivo is served after a meal to aid digestion.] As such, this witchy coffee concoction would best be enjoyed as an after dinner drink--or possibly after a large midday meal.
When I taste-tested this recipe, I didn't have an Irish coffee glass. So I mixed it in a large mug. I later also experimented with adding in about once once Half and Half, which reduced the amount of coffee. I personally found it to be delicious.
