Caffè corretto, an Italian beverage, consists of a shot of espresso "corrected" 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," " un caffè corretto alla sambuca," or "un caffè corretto al cognac," depending on the desired liquor.

In Naples, the tradition to correct the caffè with alcohol dates back to 1800s, when caffè became a famous drink.

In Spain, a similar drink is known as carajillo, and in Sweden and Norway as kaffekask and karsk, (although "karsk" generally implies that the liquor in question is moonshine) respectively.
