In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Ephemeral.”
Affogato (Italian translation: “drowned”)
An indulgent combination of rich, creamy icecream drowned in hot espresso and – should you be so inclined – a sweet drop of your favourite liqueur (traditionally amaretto, but I’m personally very partial to Frangelico for a lovely hint of hazelnut).
For it to work, however, it must be prepared in the most fleeting of moments…
Dessert, coffee and a nightcap all in one…what more can one ask for?
