Affogato with Cold-Brewed Coffee

Rating: 4.5 stars 10
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 u0026ndash; affogato.

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!

Inspiration and Ideas

Negroni Cocktail I
Rating: Unrated 6
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!
Americano Cocktail
Rating: Unrated 3
American tourists in Italy popularized this refreshing Campariu0026reg; and sweet vermouth cocktail. It's a Negroni, basically, minus the gin octane. Nice for afternoon sips at a cafe in Rome. Or even in Topeka.
