Last year when we were in Torino we made a point of taking mom to cafe al bicerin where we enjoyed one of their trademark (yes, it really is trademarked) drinks.
The Bicerin is a traditional hot drink made of espresso, drinking chocolate and whole milk served layered in a small rounded glass. The word bicerin is Piedmontese for “small glass”. The beverage has been known since the 18th-century and was famously praised by Alexandre Dumas in 1852. It is believed to be based on the 17th-century drink "Bavareisa": the key distinction being that in a bicerin the three components are carefully layered in the glass rather than being mixed together.
The Caffè Al Bicerin has been serving the drink in Torino's Piazza della Consolata since the 18th century.
This is their version.
