Cocktail of the Week: Caffè Borghese by Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese

No one does coffee quite like the Italians ”” this cocktail from Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese combines coffee liqueur, vodka and espresso.

By Samantha Coles

You’ll find Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese on a remarkably quiet street in Rome, and the charming hotel is housed is a former 19th century Roman palazzo that lies within walking distance of some of the city’s best-known cultural landmarks and parks, including the Trevi Fountain, Villa Medici and Spanish Steps.

Franco Bongiovanni, bar manager of the hotel, has created a cocktail using a staple of the Italian lifestyle — coffee. The typical Italian day is defined by coffee rituals: a cappuccino with breakfast, a caffè macchiato as an afternoon pick-me-up, and espresso after dinner. If you’re after something with a little more kick, Caffè Borghese is made with Borghetti coffee liqueur, vodka, and espresso.

—2 tbsp. Espresso
—2 tsp. Caffè Borghetti
