Affogato is one of my favorite summertime desserts. It is simply and wonderfully just espresso and ice cream. How can you go wrong with coffee and ice cream?

Glasses full of ice cream
we tried vanilla and cinnamon and I preferred the vanilla, but some of my friends liked the cinnamon better
hot brewed espresso
Place glasses filled with scooped ice cream into the freezer for fifteen minutes. You want your scoops to be super cold so that they don't immediately melt when you pour the hot espresso over them.
Mix hot espresso with RumChata.
Pour over ice cream until the liquid almost covers the top scoop.
Use thick glassware as lighter glasses are more likely to break from the thermal shock of adding a hot beverage to the freezing cold glass.
