A few days ago I discovered Blak from the Coca--Cola company. It's an infusion of Cola and coffee so, of course, I had to try this. I fell completely in love with this Elixir Of The Gods. However there were a couple of wee drawbacks, availability and cost. I had/have never seen it anywhere other that the roadside service station we stopped at and it was $2.28 for a very small bottle. This is my not exact but fairly close solution.
- 1 (355 ml) can diet cola (regular is fine too)
- 1 -1 1⁄2 cup black coffee, frozen into cubes (or to your taste)
- Put the coffee cubes in a tall.
- Pour the soda over the coffee cubes, it will foam up so pour slowly.
When I saw pammyowl's review this sounded so interesting I KNEW I had to try it and glad I did. I love the flavors of coffee and coke and both came through better than I expected with the frozen cubes. Right now I've got a new, calorie free (I used diet soda) drink that I'll be having often. Specially since I've got a baggie full of coffee cubes in the freezer.
Yum! I loved it! I had never heard of it, but anything coffee works for me! Thanks!
We don't have Coca-Cola Blak in Korea, but I thought the combination of coffee and cola would be interesting, so I gave it a try. However, this was just not to my taste. I'm not going to give a star rating because I'm sure this is a pretty good approximation of the "real thing;" it tastes like coffee and cola, and the flavors don't seem to separate out like they would if you just mixed Coke and liquid coffee. If you like Coke Blak, I'm sure you would like this also. Thanks for posting though, it was a fun experiment.
