Serves 4

  • by from Dessert Express

Bubbly and refreshing, ice cream sodas are lighter on the palate than milkshakes.

  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • 4 cups club soda
  • 2 cups coffee ice cream, slightly softened
  • 1/2 cup brewed espresso, chilled
  • 1/2 cup Kahlúa or other coffee liqueur

Pour 2 Tbs. of the chocolate syrup and 2 Tbs. of the club soda into each of 4 tall glasses. Stir to combine. Drop a 1/2-cup scoop of ice cream into each glass. Drizzle 2 Tbs. of the espresso and 2 Tbs. of the Kahlúa over each portion. Fill the remainder of each glass with club soda. Serve immediately with a straw and a long-handled spoon.

A soda with intense Kahlua flavor. Throughly enjoyed this "adult beverage" on a sultry summer night. The flavor was maybe a little too intense for my tastes; next time I will reduce the chocolate syrup and Kahula to 1 tablespoon per serving
