Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a macchiato, a coffee drink made with espresso and milk. There are two different types of macchiatos: an espresso macchiato or a latte macchiato. An espresso macchiato is espresso with a splash of milk, and a latte macchiato is steamed milk with a splash of espresso. The word macchiato literally means "stained" or "marked," as in the milk is stained by the espresso or vice versa.
