Affogato Speciale

Affogato literally translates into ”drowned,” an apt descriptor of this traditional Italian dessert drink that consists of a scoop of gelato drowned in a shot of hot espresso.

1 scoop vanilla ice cream or gelato
2 ounces amaretto
1 (2-ounce) shot espresso
6 ounces chocolate stout

Place ice cream in a tall glass. Pour liqueur, espresso and stout over top. Serve with a spoon.

Serves 1.
