Arvani Affogato

This week's "cocktail" is a celebration of this turning of the seasons, a vanilla ice cream sundae which harkens back to summer while incorporating the warm autumnal vanilla of Artez Arvani vanilla liqueur.

Affogato is an Italian term for a scoop of gelato topped with espresso, but we see no reason you can't replace the coffee with Arvani for a decadent and slightly boozy after dinner dessert-and-digestif-in-one.

Arvani Affogato with Artez Arvani Vanilla Armagnac Liqueur


  • 1-2 scoops very good vanilla bean ice cream or gelato
  • 1.5 oz. Artez Arvani Vanilla Armagnac Liqueur
  • 1 cookie*


Scoop ice cream into a tall, chilled glass or a shallow bowl. Pour Arvani over the ice cream. Garnish with pizzelle or vanilla wafer.

* Belgian-style butter waffle cookies work well, as do Italian pizzelle or even classic Nilla wafers.
