Affrogato Al Cafe
My husband and I just celebrated the three year anniversary of the day we first met! It's kind of a long story, but we met on a street corner in Little Italy in San Diego..... it's been nothing but "happily ever after" since!
Even though Mark does the majority of the cooking around here, I wanted to make something special to commemorate our first meeting, so I thought an Italian treat would be perfect.
I may have discovered my new most favorite thing!
I found the following recipe from Sommer over at Spicy Perspective, one of my favorite go-to blogs when I am looking for something new and creative or just for inspiration. This is a wonderful and simple way to make a shot of Espresso and a scoop of vanilla gelato an extra special experience!
2 scoops vanilla gelato (or GOOD vanilla ice cream)
1 oz. Espresso
1/2 oz. Kahlua
1 tsp. dark chocolate shavings
- Place two large scoops of vanilla gelato in a glass.
- Pour one shot of hot espresso over your gelato or ice cream then, add Kahlua.
- A quick shot of whipped cream is a nice touch, but optional.
- Use a veggie peeler to shave chocolate curls over the top.
