Dark Side Affogato

Indulge in the dark and delightful world of the Dark Side Coffee Liqueur Affogato, a simple yet sophisticated dessert that's sure to impress. This easy-to-make treat marries the bold, rich flavours of our Dark Side Coffee Liqueur with the creamy sweetness of vanilla ice cream. It's the perfect balance of opposites.

This Dark Side culinary affair that promises a moment of instant bliss.


  • Two scoops of vanilla ice cream
  • A shot of Dark Side Coffee Liqueur
  • Your choice of chocolate topping, nuts, or biscuits, crushed and sprinkled on top for crunch


  1. Prepare the Glass: Choose a stylish coupe glass or a simple dessert bowl to serve your Dark Side Affogato. The presentation adds to the experience!

  2. Add the Ice Cream: Place two generous scoops of vanilla ice cream into the glass or bowl. The creamy texture of the ice cream provides a perfect base for the liqueur.

  3. Pour the Liqueur: Slowly pour a cup of Dark Side Coffee Liqueur over the ice cream. The liqueur will start to melt the ice cream slightly, creating a luscious blend of flavours and textures.

  4. Garnish: Top your Affogato with your favourite garnish. Chocolate topping, crushed nuts, or biscuits add a delightful crunch that complements the smoothness of the ice cream and the boldness of the liqueur.

  5. Serve Immediately: The Affogato is best enjoyed right away, while the ice cream is still firm but beginning to melt into the liqueur.

Tips for the Perfect Affogato

  • Chill the Glass: For an extra touch of luxury, chill your glass in the freezer for a few minutes before serving. This helps keep the ice cream from melting too quickly.
  • Experiment with Toppings: Try different toppings to find your favourite combination. Shaved dark chocolate, toasted hazelnuts, or a sprinkle of sea salt can all add unique flavours and textures.
  • Adjust the Liqueur: If you prefer a stronger coffee flavour, add a bit more liqueur. For a lighter taste, reduce the amount slightly.
Enjoy this decadent dessert as a special treat after dinner, or impress your guests at your next gathering with the effortless elegance of a Dark Side Coffee Liqueur Affogato.
