Add ice to a tall glass. Pour 2 shots of hot espresso over the ice cubes. The ice cubes will melt a little. Its good! You want the strong espresso to be slightly diluted.

Can you brew espresso in a Keurig?

Yes! You don’t have to have a espresso machine to prepare an espresso. If you have a coffee maker that uses K cups or pods (like a Keurig), you can use espresso pods instead of coffee pods. We have the Keurig Coffee, Latte & Cappuccino Maker home, and we love it. And in a pinch, you can just brew coffee and make this recipe with coffee instead of espresso.
