I just got a Nespresso Coffee Maker that makes wonderful, idiot proof cups of espresso. It uses little pods that are pre-measured and unfortunately only available from Nestle. I made a cup of Ristretto (the strongest blend) and couldn't resist supplementing with a half shot of BT. Strong coffee and bourbon. It was amazingly good. The aromas of the bourbon jumped from the cup with warm coffee. I've had espresso with liquers such as Sambuca and didn't care for the overpowering flavor and sweetness. I've also had Irish Coffee with sugar and whipped cream. Not appealing. Is there a name for espresso with fortification??? I though it was a great "pick me up" on a frigid evening. Anybody else have experience with bourbon and coffee??? Recipes, suggestions??
