    twissis's Note:

    From *The World Encyclopedia of Coffee* -- The phrase *Dessert in a Glass* is oft-used, but this recipe sets a new std for it. Even the intro seems to apologize for it when it says "This drink is unabashedly decadent & not for those counting calories." *Enjoy* !

      NOTE FROM ME: I entered this recipe as written, but feel the need to ask a question. Is it just me or is it more than just a little silly to use 2 tsp of sugar in this recipe?.

      Yum twisted, yum. This iced coffee was so decadent and delicious, that I drank it all myself and I didn't even feel bad, was too busy enjoy all the flavors. Loved the addition of the cognac and Tia Maria in this good. It was quick and really easy to make. The only change I made to the recipe was to add the ice cream into the drink and garnished with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. Thanks for sharing another winner oh Queen of Coffee. Made for Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT-8.

      "Australia/NZ Swap #16"-- OHH, BLISS !! (Starbucks)Java Chip (coffee ice cream), Cognac, Tia Maria, and chocolate ! Can Heaven promise more ?!! DH and I were too involved with election returns to plan and take a photo, but will when we make it again this weekend. NOT sharing -- hoarding it ALL for US ! A tad torn by use of shaker and crushing ice -- but decided to try putting ice WITH the first 6 ingredients and whirling them a few times in the blender, next time. Reminded us of brandy Alexanders we used to make, and a friend who ran his finger around the inside of the glass. MANY thanks, twissis - we will surely be laid-back, fat, and mellow !
