Illy has a great little recipe out just in time for Valentines day. They passed this along, maybe it's something you should try out tonight, or maybe this weekend. They make the Espresso Amore… from Illy….
2 shots espresso
1 1/2 oz. amaretto
2 oz. heavy cream
2 illy coffee beans
In a small steaming pitcher, add amaretto.
Heat the liqueur for a few seconds using the steam wand on your espresso machine. Pour into a 6-ounce freddo glass.
Prepare espresso and add to the serving glass. Gently stir.
In a small bowl or mixing cup add heavy cream. Lightly whip so that it is still a liquid.
Starting at the edge of the glass, slowly pour/float cream on top of the coffee.
