Mexican Coffee Affogato Recipe | https://saltandwind.com

Why should the Italians have all the fun with affogato? I mean, I get that they came up with pouring coffee over ice cream and, in true Italian form, it's pretty perfect in its simplicity. But, I've been making Cafe de Olla or cinnamon-spiced coffee and let me tell you: it's pretty magical over ice cream!

Okay, now it's time to stock up on these Mexican pantry ingredients, then try your hand at making this. Share your creation with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 (3 inch) cinnamon sticks
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1/2 cup espresso ground coffee grounds
  • Ice cream

    for serving

  • 2 3-inch strips of orange peel

Instructions

Make The Spiced Simple Syrup: Combine water, sugar, and spices in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer then cook, uncovered, until mixture is well spiced, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Steep The Coffee: Remove from heat, add espresso grounds, and let steep to desired strength, about 3 to 5 minutes. Strain liquid and discard solids.

Tip

If you want it a little more authentic to a real affogato, go ahead and make an espresso with the strained liquid (before you put coffee in it).

Serve The Affogato: Pour the Mexican coffee over your favorite ice cream and serve immediately.
