Affogato with an Irish Twist

You don’t need to paint the walls with shamrocks but there are a few things you can do to bring a little Irish charm to your restaurant or cafe. It could be a St Patrick’s Day playlist, a green-coloured cocktail, an offer on Guinness, or even a special menu for the day with some Irish classics.



1 portion

  • 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream
  • 1 shot of espresso coffee or cold-brew coffee (about 50-75ml)
  • 35ml Irish whiskey or cream liquor (like Baileys)
  • 1 tsp of chopped walnuts 


  1. Scoop your vanilla ice cream onto a tray and then freeze (this will speed up service).
  2. Lightly toast your chopped walnuts.
  3. Put together your Affogato by placing a scoop of the vanilla ice cream in a glass, then pour over the whiskey, followed by the shot of coffee, then top with the toasted walnuts.
  4. Serve immediately.
