La Dolce Vita


Today Giada made the ultimate summer drink: a Nutella gelato cooler spiked with Kahlua. In short, all of my favorite ingredients combined in a milkshake -- chocolate, hazelnut and coffee-flavored liqueur.

I'd love to enjoy the cooler relaxing on this rooftop terrace designed by Tim Clarke and Art Luna

or sitting on this porch, or in the poolhouse, both designed by Steven Gambrel (photos from Elle Decor)


or maybe in this intimate pavilion designed by Mary McDonald


Here's the cooler recipe. Enjoy!
2 cups Chocolate-Hazelnut Gelato
1/2 cup coffee-flavored liqueur (recommended: Kahlua), or coffee
4 cups crushed ice
1/4 cup chopped chocolate-covered coffee beans, plus more for garnish, optional
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into glasses, sprinkle with chocolate covered coffee beans, and serve with a straw.
