How to make carajillo coffee

To make this coffee cocktail you can take a tumbler glass. Fill half the glass with ice and let the glass go cold.

Take 50 ml of Licor 43 and either pour it on top of the ice cubes. Make a very strong cup of hot café solo. Serve the glass of Licor 43 alongside the espresso and pour it in the tumbler glass. 

At first you will see a separation between the Licor 43 and the coffee. Stir the café solo through the Licor 43. The coffee will go cold almost instantly.

Enjoy this semi sweet cocktail. If you love sweet coffee first add some sugar to the café solo so it can resolve and then add it to the tumbler glass.
