Italian Salento Style Refreshing Espresso Coffee with Almond Milk Syrup
The espresso coffee with almond milk syrup is a refreshing iced coffee native to Salento, the most Southern area of the Apulia region. The main city of this peninsula is Lecce, a fascinating and elegant city full of historic palaces and churches in Barocco Leccese style.
Many of the city’s buildings are decorated with friezes, capitals, pinnacles and rosettes, and are made of pietra Leccese. It’s a light brown limestone rock typical in these areas, known for its hardness and its ease of processing.
If you happen to be there, after a walk around the streets of the historical center, take a stop in a Bar in one of the plazas (Piazza Sant’ Oronzo or Piazza Duomo) and taste an iced coffee. We suggest also trying out Il Pasticiotto, a small pasta frolla cake filled with custard cream, as it’s one of the culinarie excellences of Lecce.
