Ok, in all seriousness, an affogato is a really fantastic Italian dessert consisting of vanilla gelato (or ice cream, if your can't get your hands on gelato) with a shot or two of hot espresso poured over the top. The name literally means "drowned"!
This week, the gentlemen behind The Bitten Word wrote about making a boozy version of this dessert following a recent recipe from Everyday Food. Frangelico, a hazelnut liqueur, is added along with the espresso - a nutty-sweet combination that has us ticking down the minutes to the weekend.
