Waving or Drowning?

  

Ready for the world's simplest, most delicious pick-me-up? 

 

Dark, sophisticated and so easy to make, Wild-Arbor’s take on the classic Italian favourite way to finish off lunch with style.

 

Drowning? Enter Affogato in your Italian dictionary and you’ll see it means ‘drowning’. This recipe takes a delicious combination of strong expresso coffee and a shot of Wild-Arbor and with it you literally ‘drown’ a large scoop of ice cream in a glass.

 

In other words: meet your new summer go-to indulgence. 

 

So the next time you experience a little midday ‘noia’, or need a last-minute pudding, try this Italian classic. It will take both your coffee and puddings to another level.
