{Affogato} Classic Italian Ice Cream And Espresso Recipe

Over and over again we tip our hats to the Italians for all their delicious espresso creations. And though we love a good latte and swoon for an icy cold shakerato, one we’re partial toward is the classic coffee and ice cream float known as an affogato!

Affogato actually means ‘drowned’, because the gelato gets drowned by the espresso. Are you interested now? Try this {Affogato} Classic Italian Ice Cream And Espresso recipe, have fun with your coffee.

Now go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
