Recipe: A deliciously simple affogato

Few things round out a beautiful dinner or long, indulgent lunch like a simple affogato. The Italian dessert is universally loved for its creamy texture, stimulating pop of caffeine and flavour that finds the perfect balance of sweet and bitter. Requiring very little culinary skill to create your own version at home, Lewis Road Creamery has all the necessary ingredients to ensure any affogato is executed with Michelin precision.

Directions
Place two small scoops of Lewis Road Creamery’s ice cream into a short glass or coffee cup. Pour a single shot of Lewis Road Creamery’s Chocolate Cream Liqueur over the top before finishing with the shot of hot espresso.
