I can take zero credit for this amazing drink, but I absolutely had to share it with you. One of the blogs I follow, Sore Legs and Scrambled Eggs, just posted this amazing after dinner drink (if you haven’t checked out her blog, you should, it about food and fitness!). It is really simple, but the coffee ice cubes are the best part! Many people like to have coffee after dinner, and I’m no exception. However, sometimes you want to spice it up just a little.
Not only is this a great way to get a little caffeine fix, but also a brilliant idea to use up any leftover coffee in that huge pot you made this morning. Coffee ice cubes! They’re also great for making an iced coffee without the bummer of getting watered down by regular ol’ ice cubes.
The beauty of this drink, as Ashley eludes to, is that it continually gets better. The flavors start out with just the liqueurs and vodka, but as the ice melts, you get a rich wonderful coffee flavor. I substituted vanilla vodka for her cake vodka suggestion, but it’s only a matter of personal preference. Whichever way you go, you should be sure to try one version or another of this fantastic after dinner drink.
Coffee-Cube After Dinner Drink

3-4 coffee ice cubes
2 oz vanilla vodka
2 oz Kahlua
1 oz Bailey’s Irish Cream
1. Place cubes in low ball. Add vodka, Kahlua and Bailey’s. Stir, or don’t 🙂 I prefer not to so the flavor continues to change throughout the drink.
