Coffee punch is, at its simplest, a cold version of the classic Italian beverage affogato — a small scoop of vanilla gelato topped with a hot shot of espresso. Scaled up to party size and served in a punch bowl, it becomes a mega-sized coffee drink for your guests to enjoy by the ladle-full.
At any gathering with food, you’ll want to make sure that there’s coffee available. Good coffee, made in a way that doesn’t pull you out of the conversation for half an hour, or leave your guests waiting while your coffee maker drips and hisses. And Barnie’s has you covered. All it takes is a little prep — and we’re not talking about picking up cardboard cartons of swill from your local donut shop.
