Tips: A coffee-based drink, this would be most appreciated
by adults, as it is not too sweet. It's easy to make, though,
and would be a nice treat for a hot afternoon. This must be
served immediately after it is completed. You'll need a 12-ounce
glass for each serving.
2 tsp. instant coffee granules
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup very cold water
2 to 4 scoops good-quality chocolate sorbet, slightly softened
Lightly sweetened whipped cream
coffee granules into a heatproof, two-cup capacity liquid measure.
Add boiling water; stir to dissolve. Add cold water and blend
well. Divide evenly between two tall, 12-ounce capacity glasses.
quickly, add 1 or 2 scoops of slightly softened sorbet to each
glass. Stir thoroughly for a minute or two. Most of the sorbet
will melt (OK), and the glass will become cold to the touch,
which is what you want to happen. The glasses will be at least
three-quarters full at this point. Fill the glasses to the top
with lightly sweetened whipped cream. If desired, top with an
optional garnish. Serve immediately!
