by Marye Audet

  • 2/3 half and half (light) cream
  • 2 1/2 cups espresso, or strong coffee, cold (we suggest a real shot of Vienna Coffee's espresso con Robusta, but VCC's Sulawesi will also be a good start)
  • 4 scoops coffee ice cream (click link for a homemade coffee ice cream recipe)
  • 1 -2 liter bottle of Coke
  • 1/2 cup Kahlua (this can be omitted for a non-alcoholic drink)
  • 4 frosted glasses

Mix the cream and the cold coffee

Add 2 tbs Kahlua to each glass

Place a scoop of the ice cream in each of four glasses

Half fill each glass with the coffee then fill up the rest of the way with Coke.

Serves 4
