An affogato (Italian for "drowned") is an Italian coffee-based dessert. The drink was created in Las Vegas by William Reed at Cipriani’s when he combined the homemade gelato with his double espresso. 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.
