Boozy Affogato


Boozy Affogato

I have been enjoying, slurping, and inhaling Affogatos for a long time, but I hadn’t ever tried a boozy version, what’s wrong with me?   

Affogato is Italian for “drowned”

A classic Italian dessert that consist of ice cream or gelato floating in a sea of espresso or strong coffee. My little brother loves them and we plan on enjoying them his entire visit. Think of them as an adult milkshake with a kick, a boozy kick!

These Boozy Affogatos are made with one of my favorite ice cream Tillamook’s Espresso Mocha.      

Quick Tip: Chill your glasses – it makes all the difference.
