Just a shot of coffee, milk and ice cubes. I have coffee ice cubes solidifying in the freezer for my next coffee.
I love the extra flavour as they melt.
A scoop of vanilla ice cream may or may not be added some days!
Instead of sugar, he adds a shot of caramel syrup.
He has such a sweet tooth!
We had friends around for a BBQ dinner midweek and wanted to offer a simple dessert. We decided to make Affogatos(a scoop of vanilla ice-cream with a shot of coffee poured over it)
They were too easy! The kids just had the ice cream with sprinkles and chocolate topping.
I'd like to make a Mocha version of this and swap the Vanilla ice cream for Chocolate ice cream.
Sometimes a Friday night at home calls for an Espresso Martini and nibbles. It's nice to chat about the past week, and have a drink in the comfort of your own home. Especially in Winter when it can be hard to get motivated to go out.
These cocktails hit the spot!
The recipe we used was
2oz of Baileys
0.5oz of Vodka
1 shot of cold espresso
* Add the Baileys, Vodka + Espresso.
* Shake well with ice and strain into a Martini glass.
* Garnish with coffee beans.
I loved that the Nespresso was so compact and fit in really well on my kitchen bench.
And of course I had to change my lightbox to suit ;)
We loved the Fortissio Lungo pods as the coffee was so smooth and full of flavour but I'm looking forward to trying different blends.
Which one is your favourite?
Do you have a Nespresso machine? Was it a life changer? ;)
Disclosure - I was given the Nespresso machine to trial. I wasn't paid to write a review. All opinions are my own. I just loved it so much I wanted to share it with you x
