Summer Perfect Iced Java Nudge


The Iced Java Nudge is delicous!


I’ll admit up front that this is one decadent, calorie-rich drink, but, hey, once in awhile we all deserve to indulge a little. Weather-wise, it’s been a lousy summer in most parts of the country—just plain too hot. Fortunately, there are several ways to cure those summer doldrums, especially if you try this cool, creamy and delicious treat.


I love milk shakes, coffee and chocolate so I guess the combination is what inspired me to come up with this one.  I’m actually starting off with a basic coffee nudge recipe and then upping the ante by mixing it with coffee flavored ice cream, ice, and a swirl of chocolate syrup.


Let’s get to it.  Start by gathering the following ingredients:


Don't forget the coffee ice cream.

Gather these liqueurs.

1 ounce Kahlua (or other coffee-flavored liqueur)

1 ounce Crème De Cocoa

1/2 ounce Brandy

1 ounce cream

3 rounded scoops of coffee ice cream


Chocolate syrup

Fresh brewed coffee 8 ounces (1 cup)


It's hard not to sample along the way.

A 1/8 measuring cup works great for this purpose.

This one goes together quickly.  First measure out the liqueurs and pour into the blender.  If you don’t have anything that measures an ounce, just remember an ounce equates to 1/8 of a cup (and thus half an ounce is 1/16 of a cup).


Coffee flavored ice cream is best.

In a pinch you could substitute vanilla.

Add the cream, ice cream and coffee to the blender.  Blend well.  The consistency will come out like slightly thickened chocolate milk.  If you want a thicker drink, add another scoop or so of ice cream.


Don't forget the chocolate syrup.

Swirl some syrup around the inside of your serving glass.

Swirl some chocolate syrup around the inside of a tall clear glass (this really creates a nice looking drink) and then pour in some ice and your mix.


Yum!  This is so incredibly delicious.

Serve with a straw and then sit back and enjoy.

Serve with a straw and start coming up with lots of words that mean yum.  You’ll be needing them as soon as you find a shady spot to sit and sip.
