My version of mexican coffee on ice, I hope you will enjoy this drink.

  2. Mix the remaining cup of coffee with cayenne pepper and pour into a jar and chill in fridge, until the ice cubes are ready to use.
  3. Put three of the coffee ice cubes into blender, next add coffee, chocolate ice cream and Kahlua, puree until all the ice is crushed.

Wow!!! Whats not to like about this wonderful treat?? I made this as written and it was perfect for this very hot and humid day. After my coffee brewed this morning, I put one cup in the fridge and filled about 6 ice cube spots and put in the freezer. With just a pinch of the cayenne, it wasn't too strong but still gave a little kick!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.

5 Bright Stars . . . but what was I expecting, coffee, ice cream and Kahlua, there is no way to go wrong! We had this for dessert last night -- a perfect end to a meal on a warm summer evening! Thanks Kato for sharing. I don't have a regular ice cube tray so put the coffee in a ziplock and froze . . .think the ice cubes would be easier to work work with, so will have to get one just for this. Didn't really measure the Kahlua so I'm sure I used more than an ounce! Thanks Kato for sharing!
