Resentin....drink up!

During my past week in Urbino, Italy, every supper typically began around nine and finished around midnight.  Each meal ends with grappa and lemoncello, the traditional after-dinner drinks of Italy.  An espresso is also de rigueur and a true Italian will pour a small amount of grappa into his almost empty espresso cup, swirl it around, then down it in one swig.  This espresso-infused grappa called resentin or "little rinser".
