Espresso Martini AFFOGATO is my new favorite. Espresso martinis are all the rage. But I wanted to do something a little different. Kick it up a notch so to speak. For those of you that dont know, affogato is a traditional Italian dessert made with vanilla gelato and hot espresso. Its delicious all by itself. But when you add some Van Gogh double espresso vodka, it takes on a whole new life!! And wow is it incredible. I top it with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and a cookie of some sort. I mean why not? Right? You might as well go for it!!!
