Affogato Speciale {Winter Cocktails}

  adapted from Winter Cocktails 
by Maria del Mar Sacasa

I have made affogato plenty of times. But I've never spiked it. Wow. Since I was using some homemade eggnog ice cream that we received as a Christmas present - thanks, Jenn! - I swapped out the recommended amaretto for some dark rum.

2 oz dark rum
2 oz dark espresso (my favorite is Illy)
6 oz organic chocolate stout
1 scoop eggnog ice cream

Place ice cream in a glass. Pour rum, espresso, and beer over the top. Serve with a spoon.

Cin cin!

A note on the amounts, I think that Winter Cocktails might have intended that the proportion given serve one person. I split that into two smaller cocktails and it was perfect for us.


  1. Very interesting. Cheers and Happy New Year!

    1. Happy new year to you, too. Cheers! Hope your evening is filled with celebrations and libations.
