My original inspiration for this recipe comes from AdriMicina's Recipe #87634. I have been making this over and over again since I first reviewed her recipe over three years ago. It's evolved since then, and at the request of some friends, both live and virtual, I am posting my own version. My original intention to keep this dairy-free was for religious reasons, I don't mix meat with dairy and the thought of a shnapps glass of this stuff straight out of the freezer at the end of a meal on a hot summer's day prompted me to make this using soy milk. A lactose-intolerant friend loves it for her own purposes, so this recipe comes in useful for a myriad of reasons.
