This Italian-inspired drink takes its name from the word "affogato," which means "drowned" in Italian, as it is inspired by the popular dessert of espresso drowned in vanilla ice cream. In this cocktail, a scoop of vanilla ice cream is combined with a drizzle of honey and a shot of coffee liqueur to create a sweet and creamy base. The addition of vodka provides a subtle boozy undertone while the coffee adds a bold and rich flavor. This cocktail is perfect for coffee lovers looking for a sophisticated twist on a classic dessert.
