As soon as I heard about a collaboration between Shake Shack and DC's Phillips Collection, I knew I had to go check it out! I wasn't exactly sure what to expect with something called the "Abstract Espressonist" aside from it having coffee in it, haha.
Thankfully the sign inside Shake Shack helped me out (above): Inspired by Alfonso Ossorio featuring espresso frozen custard blended with chocolate butter toffee and cinnamon marshmallow swirl.
If you're a fan of coffee ice cream, you would LOVE this custard. The small bits of chocolate butter toffee added some texture, and although I couldn't really detect any obvious marshmallow swirls I could taste the cinnamon throughout. This was a delicious and fun collaboration, and I look forward to trying the other flavors!
