*Made for Elly, in memory of Jim* . Thought of you both when we whizzed up this tasty concoction for our 9 PM snack. What I THOUGHT was vanilla ice cream, was actually coffee, so all the more intense flavor ! Have a bit of a heavy hand with the cognac, so with the ice cream, espresso crystals and a dab of whipped cream --- a totally tasty "lo-cal" night-cap ! Thanks for posting, Elly -- and our best wishes for you at this sad time.


  1. In a blender or food processor, blend ice cream, espresso coffee, and cognac until smooth.
  2. Immediately spoon into chilled champagne glasses or dessert cups.
  3. Variation - use chocolate ice cream for a mocha flavour!
  4. This is nice served with crunchy rolled pastries.
