Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The Espresso Galliano melds the sweet, herbal notes of Galliano with the robust, dark flavors of coffee, creating a rich tapestry of warmth perfect for morning sipping. The intriguing twist of lemon juice cuts through the sweetness and enhances the coffee's bitterness, bringing a unique brightness to this otherwise dense concoction.
