Dragonstone Affogato – Spiked with Bourbon-Saffron Tea: This ‘Game of Throne’ inspired dessert is a delicious symphony of different flavor sensation in every bite. It takes you from this sweet warm flavor from saffron-bourbon to a cooling calm sensation with a hint of vanilla from the ice-cream. It’s not what conquering the 7 kingdoms would feel like but it’s definitely close.
I’m so ready with my Dragonstone Affogato – Spiked with Bourbon-Saffron Tea for the new Game of Thrones Season 7 to start this Sunday.
So, calling all my Game of Thrones fan, as I’m not sure if winter is coming in the next few months but ‘Jon Snow’ is definitely going to be here this Sunday 😉
And with this particular series, it’s either you are a die-hard fan or none at all – there is absolutely no in between. If you’ve watched all the seasons, you know by now that the theme in most of them is Dark, dark characters, costumes, sets to absolutely dark-gory fights.
The revenge is meaner than ever and love…oh the poor characters in love are in turmoil.
There are many shades of characters to choose from, be it sweet, evil, absolutely crude to devastatingly in love and yes, there’s, of course, dragons and their mother ‘Daenerys Targaryen’ who’s the center of everyone’s eyes and the show is absolutely commanded by her.
So, to watch this season with my friends, I thought of creating this Dragonstone Affogato – Spiked with Bourbon-Saffron Tea recipe which actually resembles the dark colors of the island and since in all that excitement of the episode, we needed something potent to calm our girly nerves….so comes the bourbon and saffron 🙂
Now, this recipe comes together in mere 15 minutes and the only cooking you need to do is make the tea – that it. Once, the tea is made, all you have to do is scoop some ice-cream in the serving bowl, pour some cold bourbon-saffron tea and top with chocolate syrup.
That is, seriously simple but absolutely addicting!! It’s a perfect dessert for any of your party or a simple last minute add-on to any planned meal.
The color of the bourbon-saffron tea is absolutely gorgeous and a delicious mix of flavor n fragrance. The sweet-smokey flavor from the bourbon is the perfect combination of the fragrant saffron.
So go ahead and make this recipe to watch ‘game of throne’ with your friends or even if it’s just you. With all that charged up drama and anticipation we’ve had for so long, this is a perfect treat and consolation when anything bad happens on screen.
