Recently we hosted a Mexican-inspired shower for some friends. Our small group served up a taco bar, which worked out great especially since it was a co-ed affair.
Or in the words of our home's heroine, Dora the Explorer... it was delicioso!
The big hit of the night, though, seemed to be the punch. When I spotted this recipe over on the LPM blog, I knew it would fit the coffee loving dad and mom-to-be. I didn't know, however, that all the other guests would be joking that they wanted to attach a handle to the punch bowl and turn it up!
Not to mention, except that I am, I got my mismatched set of punch glasses for a dime a piece at a new thrifty favorite. They are lovely! Perhaps they deserve their own post...
But back to the drink itself... :) 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup instant coffee granules 1 cup of boiling water 8 cups of milk Chocolate and vanilla ice-cream to taste (about 1 quart or more total) *I doubled this recipe for what you see above.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar and coffee. Stir in boiling water until dissolved. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Just before serving, pour coffee mixture into a one gallon punch bowl. Stir in milk and add ice-cream until melted. That simple.
Yummy compliments... Chocolate covered frozen bananas and pineapple upside down cupcakes.
