An affogato (Italian for "drowned") is an Italian coffee-based dessert. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped or "drowned" with a shot of hot espresso. Some variations also include a shot of amaretto, Bicerin, or other liqueur.
Though restaurants and cafes in Italy categorize the affogato as a dessert, some restaurants and cafes outside Italy categorise it as a beverage. Occasionally, coconut, berries, honeycomb and multiple flavours of ice cream are added.
The “McAffogato” was made popular by police satire group UK Cop Humour in September 2018 after a number of officers sent images of their own affogato, a McDonald's vanilla milkshake with an added double espresso shot.
