I made this as a reward for getting through a damn long week, and let me tell you – it was absolutely worth it. The coffee was probably not the best in the world, as I do not have a dedicated coffee maker at home (I only usually get lattes out in the wild, and any use of coffee is either in making Kahlua, Bailey’s, or as a part of ice cream). I also didn’t use espresso, as I didn’t have it on me, but would probably change things a bit again.
However, I did have Ben and Jerry’s Bonaroo Buzz, good local coffee (Steep and Brew’s Highlander Grog), and pumpkin spice Kahlua (yes it is a thing and it is amaaaaazing). This would probably work if you needed to add a bit of milk to it too for your own personal tastes.
Either way, good drink. Good way to end a week.
Kahlua Crunch Affogato
- 1 large scoop Ben and Jerry’s Bonaroo Buzz (or similar coffee/alcohol crunch flavored ice cream of choice)
- 4 oz fresh brewed coffee (or espresso, or latte, really, whatever works best for your tastes)
- 3 oz Kahlua (I used the pumpkin spice version I was able to find, best decision ever)
- 1.5 oz vodka
Scoop your ice cream into a bowl, pour the coffee over it, and then add your Kahlua and vodka. And then enjoy your caffieney alcoholic ice creamy goodness. Maybe while attempting not to set things on fire.
