Chocolate Chiller

Yield: 2 servings

Tips: An easy coffee-based drink, this would be most appreciated by adults, as it is not too sweet. This must be served immediately after it is completed. You'll need a 12-ounce glass for each serving. Great on a hot afternoon!


  • 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

Optional Garnish:

  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Pinch of finely grated semisweet chocolate

Place coffee granules into a heatproof, 2-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.

Working 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!
