Caffè corretto, an Italian beverage, consists of a shot of espresso with a shot of liquor, usually grappa, and sometimes sambuca or brandy. It is also known (outside of Italy) as an "espresso corretto". It is ordered as "un caffè corretto alla grappa," "[…] corretto alla sambuca," or "[…] corretto al cognac," depending on the desired liquor.
In Spain, a similar drink is known as carajillo, and in Sweden and Norway as kaffekask and karsk, (although "karsk" is in fact coffee added to moonshine to make the moonshine palatable, rather than liquor added to coffee for flavor) respectively.
