Affagato is an Italian word that means “drowned” and used in the context of dessert you will frequently see it as Affagato Cafe which translates to “drowned in coffee.” I love this simple recipe that’s so easy to make. It’s like “comfort food” to me. Yum!
2 scoops of cinnamon ice cream (alternatively, you could use vanilla)
1 to 2 shots of espresso (alternatively, 1 cup of plain coffee, decaf is alright)
Optional: Cinnamon powder or shaved chocolate
Put your scoops of ice cream in the drinking glass and pour your coffee on top of that. Decorate with a cinnamon stick, or with shaved chocolate. If you love cinnamon, you can sprinkle some powdered cinnamon on top. Cinnamon is NOT created equal.
