      Affogato is an Italian drink or dessert that is great for after dinner in place of a piece of cake or pie. I know in my family's house coffee itself is usually offered to guests following dinner along with the dessert for the evening. However, why not combine those two into a simple, yet delicious drink; Affogato. The name simply means "drowned" in Italian. Affogato.
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream or gelato
  • 1 shot hot espresso
  • Sprinkle sugar or chopped chocolate covered coffee beans
1. Brew espresso
2. Scoop ice cream into cup
3. Pour shot of espresso
4. Sprinkle chopped coffee beans.
5. Drink and enjoy
     Simple, delicious, and the perfect accompaniment to any great dinner. A great idea to add that little something different to this could be the addition of amaretto and make it just for adults. ;)
