“Affogato (Italian, “drowned”) is a coffee-based dessert. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with hot espresso. Some variations also include a shot of Amaretto, Bicerin or other liqueur. It is considered one drink, not a combination of coffee and ice cream. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, “affogato” entered the English language by 1992.”
