Obviously good taste! I want to say it’s Bianco Ice quartz or something like that... all I know is that it’s what the better half wanted!

I thought it was going well... until I spilt steamed milk all over my hand, resulting in a not so symmetrical rosetta.

They look delish, we're just at the start of  a heat wave here so might have to look up the recipe....

It’s not much of a recipe.

One shot in a cold cup. Let the cup take the heat out.

Pour into a cold glass

Add a large ice cube, (You can get large ice cube trays) so the ice melts slower and does dilute the drink too much.

I add the ice into the shot carefully to try not to crack it.

Pour milk onto the ice cube really slowly so it doesn’t mix with the coffee straight away.

Mix and drink!

Get yourself some whiskey stones if you don't want to water down your drink.

or get yourself some whisky. After a while you start caring less and less about water in your milk drink

I have whiskey stones, but they don’t really cut it. They warm up surprisingly quick. I’d have to fill the glass with them.

I do use them for bourbon though. Less liquid so it’s okay. I don’t like ice in my liquor.

Thats not a wing mirror it is "Gimbaling oleophobic mirror for examining your shots."

I presume it allows you to talk ti the mad hatter as well...

Wing mirrors are alot cheaper - this is what I have i think
