|Espresso + Gelato = LOVE|
**Espresso Martini Affogato**
based on a recipe from Daydreamer Desserts
2 or 4 tablespoons salted caramel gelato (hazelnut or vanilla flavoured gelato would also work well)
2 ounces hot espresso
2 - 4 sugar cubes (4 grams)
6 ounces triple shot coffee liqueur
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
2 chocolate hazelnut Pirouette cookies, optional garnish
Divide gelato into 2 martini glasses. Place your glasses in the freezer while you prepare the martini.
Dissolve sugar cubes in the hot espresso. Allow to cool slightly.
In a cocktail shaker with ice combine espresso, coffee liqueur, and vanilla extract. Shake well for 10 to 20 seconds. Strain and pour into prepared martini glass.
Garnish each martini glass with a chocolate Pirouette cookie.
