Carajillo Affogato ❤️ This coffee drink is seriously the best one I’ve ever made! Carajillo is a Spanish drink with espresso and rum or brandy, but a Mexican carajillo is espresso and Licor 43; which I used the Mexican version for this recipe. Affogato is an Italian drink/dessert of ice cream over espresso… So I mixed both of these amazing creations and voila!
