If you have access to a soda siphon, this is a totally cool, great beverage to make for young and old adults alike, though not the best for the kiddies because of the espresso. An alternative method, if you can find it, is to make this with Manhattan Special soda (espresso soda) and stir with chocolate syrup before pouring over ice cream. Either way, it’s a gem!
