Meaning “drowned” in Italian, the Affogato is served in cafes and gelato shops all over Italy. When the hot espresso gets poured over and "drowns" the cold gelato, it is absolutely pure bliss.

One of the MANY reasons we love Affogatos is because there are endless flavor combinations! Vanilla bean ice cream topped with Chocolate liqueur and macadamia nuts. Coffee ice cream topped with Coffee liqueur and chocolate covered espresso beans. Chocolate Bourbon ice cream and Mocha liqueur topped with hazelnuts. The list goes on!
Conniptions 3 helpful facts when preparing to make an Affogato:
1. Make sure the ice cream you are using is top notch. Durhamites, we recommend Parlour and Raleigh folks, we recommend Two Roosters.
2. Have all three Damn Fine liqueurs on hand because you never know what mood you'll be in.
