Who doesn’t scream for ice cream? With so many flavors to choose from and only one National Ice Cream Day, how do you even choose? Well to narrow it down for you, HOT ITALIAN’s traditional Affogato is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. HOT ITALIAN offers this timeless treat using ALMARE Gelato. ALMARE is an artisanal producer based out of Berkeley, California. HOT ITALIAN features its signature ‘espresso and vanilla bean’ gelato flooded in Mr. Espresso’s Neapolitan fair-trade espresso.
In fact, HOT ITALIAN made its own improvisation on affogato. By placing liquor instead of espresso and showering the decadent dessert with whipped cream and crunchy, crushed hazelnuts. Amongst these indulgent combos include dark chocolate with Frangelico, vanilla bean with lazzaroni amaretto, salted caramel with bourbon, vanilla bean with Amaro Montenegro, and espresso with Kahlua. After all that, can you really just choose one?
On that note (no pun intended), be sure to check out the live DJs performing every Sunday from 11:30 am-2pm at HOT ITALIAN’s Public Market Emeryville location. On National Ice Cream Day, Pandora’s Music Director and world-renowned DJ and producer J Boogie will be playing, Gordo Cabeza will be performing on July 24th, KingMost will be playing on July 31st and DJ Fluid will be playing on August 7th. Be sure to join in on the fun listening to beats while savoring your sweet, creamy gelato!
