Make your own decadent - and very adult - fancy iced coffee drink. This one combines double-strength coffee, chocolate liqueur and whipped cream for a refreshing jolt of a summer drink. To make double-strength coffee, simply double the amount of coffee grounds you normally would use to make a pot. Once the coffee has brewed, remove it from the heat, let it cool, then refrigerate.
- 1 1⁄4 cups chilled extra strong coffee
- 1 1⁄2 ounces chocolate liqueur
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- whipped cream, for garnish
- chocolate syrup, for garnish
- Combine the coffee and chocolate liqueur in a tall glass.
- Add the sugar and stir for a minute or so, or until it dissolves.
- Sugar dissolves more slowly in chilled coffee than hot.
- Top the glass with whipped cream, then drizzle chocolate sauce over it.
I thought this was a very good iced coffee, but the extra strong coffee was a little TOO strong for me. While I was drinking it, I couldn't help wondering what was different than a usual iced coffee (besides the added alcohol!). Then it dawned on me that I've never had coffee without milk or cream. I would make this again, but would add some milk to lighten it up and smooth out the extra strong coffee. Thanks!
I used only 1 ounce of creme de cacao (the dark one). I tasted it before adding sugar and it was sweet enough for my taste. So I didn't need to add the sugar. I used lots of whipped cream (like you can see on my photo). And as I didn't have chocolate syrup, I poured a little bit of creme de cacao on top of the whipped cream. Thanks Lainey :) Made for Holiday tag.
