Day 210


Inside a cafe corretto.

If you haven't had this espresso concoction, you've been missing out. In Italy, I believe the default is typically grappa, but I always prefer sambuca, the tasty anise liquor.

I remember one particularly harrowing drive through the mountains outside of Florence, where we had to bypass a closed tunnel to get home. It was late and there were definitely no guardrails on the mostly one-way mountain road. I immediately ordered a cafe corretto as soon as we made it down the mountain.
