Affogato

Drowning in delicious decadence. Swimming in caffeine. Yum.

'Drowned.'

Literally, that's what affogato means in Italian.  Though, honestly, I don't remember ever seeing this concoction in Italy.  But, then again, I don't have much of a sweet tooth, so I might never have noticed it.  But when Jake ordered it at an ice cream shop in Berkeley last weekend, I noticed it and immediately wanted to replicate it.

So, for the beet dinner party, I made beet juice-infused candied lemon peel to top my affogato.

Espresso + vanilla ice cream + candied lemon peel.  Che buono!
