The Rum Affogato is a truly unique and delightful treat. It pairs the sweetness of rum with the creamy richness of a classic Italian affogato, for a delicious combination of flavors and textures.
The history of the Rum Affogato dates back to the 1700s when rum was used as a sweetener for coffee. This combination of rum and coffee quickly became popular in European coffee shops, eventually leading to the Rum Affogato we know and love today.
Making a Rum Affogato at home is easy and fun! All you need is a few ingredients and some basic tools.
Here’s what you’ll need:
