This Is The Easiest Affogato Recipe You'll Ever Try

By Sierra Meisser — / Death Wish Coffee Blog


Did you say I can have coffee ON TOP of my ice cream? Affo-gat-to try this! Affogato, Italian for “drowned”, is a sweet concoction drink that submerges a few scoops of ice cream in some of your favorite brew.

What You Need: 


  • 2 small scoops of ice cream (any flavor works, we went with Cashew milk snickerdoodle for our dairy-free friends) 
  • 1 shot of freshly pulled espresso (we used Nespresso) OR 3 tbsp. of hot coffee


    What to Do:

    1. Scoop the ice cream into a cup.
    2. Pour your freshly brewed espresso or hot coffee over the ice cream.
    3. Experiment with about 1 oz. of espresso to every scoop of ice cream. The ice cream will break down a little bit, but you don’t want a complete meltdown.


    For an extra kick:

    1. Add just a splash of ALB Distilling Death Wish Coffee Vodka
    2. Garnish with crushed coffee beans

    This is a great excuse to sneak some ice cream in with your morning brew or finish your day off with a sweet treat doused in caffeine. Do you really need more reason than that?
