Affogato with Cold-Brewed Coffee

Rating: 4.73 stars
This was the best tasting iced coffee I've ever had. Since the flavors are extracted without heat, the results are a smoother, less acidic, less bitter product. You can use the coffee concentrate straight on ice cream or gelato for a classic Italian treat – affogato.

Truly worth the time required to create this distinguished ice cold refreshing drink.

Traditional Italian Limoncello

Rating: 5 stars
Traditional Italian limoncello is typical of the Amalfi coast, a beautiful area around Naples. It's traditionally made with Sorrento lemons, which are large and flavorful and a really unique Italian product.

Classic Bellini Cocktail

The Bellini was created in the late 1930s to early 1940s by Guiseppe Cipriani at the legendary Harry's Bar in Venice, a favorite hangout for expats including Ernest Hemingway, Sinclair Lewis, and Orson Welles. The fruity cocktail owes its name and color to Cipriani's fascination with Giovanni Bellini, a 15th-century Venetian artist. Originally prepared with Prosecco and white peach puree, it's perfectly acceptable to use yellow peach puree or prepared peach nectar and/or peach schnapps. Sip and feel sophisticated!

Hot chocolate Italian-style is one of the most amazing treats in the world! You have to try this pudding-like chocolate decadence! Add some Irish cream, cinnamon, and whipped cream for a fun variation, or create your own!

Negroni Cocktail I

Rating: 4.33 stars
This will knock your socks off - I believe this drink is Italian and is generally sipped, while eating marinated olives. Be sure to use good quality gin!

Really Simple Bellinis

Just 2 ingredients and a blender is all that is needed for a nice cold peach beverage! You can adjust the ratio to your liking. Add a dash of grenadine for a more colorful drink! Enjoy!

Homemade Italian Cream Soda
