Frozen Coffee Shakes

This simple concoction is a favorite at parties all summer long. They are easy to whip up and you can mix and match flavors of ice cream, coffee, and liqueurs for an almost unlimited number of shake combinations. The recipe can be doubled or tripled depending on the size of your blender, but we usually make each shake to order.

1/2 cup chilled strong black coffee
1 cup vanilla ice cream
1 tablespoon Tia Maria liqueur
Handful of ice cubes

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth and fluffy. Pour into a large frosted glass and serve with a spoon.


Use a flavored coffee. Use chocolate, vanilla fudge swirl, mocha, or even coffee flavored ice cream in place of the vanilla ice cream. Try other coffee flavored liqueurs or experiment with Grand Marnier, Kahlua, Framboise, Amaretto, your other flavored liqueurs. Add a shot of whiskey, brandy, or rum to the shake before blending. Use your favorite flavored syrup to add a more intense flavor.

Makes 1 serving.
