Expert Tips

  • For best results, give some thought to your glassware. For the coffee version, it is essential to chill the glass so that the ice cream doesn’t melt too quickly. Here, though it is less imperative, I still suggest chilled serving glasses to allow the diners to linger over their unbelievably tasty sherry affogato dessert
  • Use only Pedro Ximénez sherry - it's unique and the only sherry suitable for this recipe in my opinion
  • Vegan ice cream can also be used. If serving to vegan diners ensure that your sherry is also vegan - not all are
