Affogato

I am a Caffeine addict who has been 'bullied' by the doctor to tone down the black coffee intake. Since then, I have been scouring the net for Cold and Hot Coffee Recipes to make up for the black coffee that I am missing out on!

Original Recipe from : Savory Sweet Life

Ingredients:
Single Espresso Shot
Single Vanilla Ice Cream Scoop
Shot of Amaretto (Optional)
One Chocolate Wafer Stick (Optional)

Method:
- Take the scoop of ice cream in a long stemmed mocktail glass.
- Pour the Espresso shot over it.
- Add a dash of Amaretto.
- Stick in the chocolate wafer stick as a garnish/deco.

Its fast and easy to make and is an awesome drink for caffeine addicts like me. It doesn't get easier than this trust me.

Let me know if you have tried this before or if you are gonna try this! Who want's to know how to make Devil's Own Cold Coffee? Leave a comment if you do and I just might cover that for 'D'!
