At L'Arte del Gelato, hands-down my favorite gelato shop in the city, I get gelato in a cone, and in a cup, and on some occasions, on brioche in a sandwich. But this morning, I had my first L'Arte Frappe. I was advise by the owner to pick a rich, bold flavor for the frappe, and immediately settled on the Chocolate-Chili gelato. The gelato is blended with 2% milk, making for a thinner, less texturally rich drink. But in return, the gelato flavor is allowed to shine. And in this case, that is a very good thing. The drink is liquidy, but velvety—a refined chocolate with a lingering chili burn at the end. Intense!
A quick note: Pumpkin gelato is back, and as amazing as ever. Look out for a Sugar Rush post on it soon!
