Once you learn what an "affogato" is, your life (and hips) will never be the same. We're so over the American method of serving coffee and dessert side-by-side. This fancy Italian term fits an even fancier dessert beverage...or beverage-like dessert: coffee-infused ice cream.
For all caffeine addicts with a sweet truth, "affogato" is a word you need to know. The dessert generally appears as a scoop of vanilla ice cream or gelato with a shot of hot espresso, just in case the sugar high needs an extra kick.
If the coffee-ice cream mix still isn't enough for that Friday-afternoon unwinding "me time," try adding a shot of amaretto or other liqueur. This bad boy kills three birds with one stone. You've affogato try it (read that line out loud and you'll discover some punny business)!
