Any of the combinations mentioned above fit the category of 'bliss in a glass'! Summer isn't over yet with plenty of hot days remaining where anything that cools you down a bit is surely welcomed. Coffee? To avid coffee drinkers, this beverage is enjoyed any day, any time of the year, hot or cold. Ice Cream? True, it too is enjoyed year around but definitely considered a coolant during the summer. Put the two together (with whatever else you like) and a wonderful balance of coffee-creamy goodness appears!

Espresso Coffee Milkshake Recipe
Have a Happy National Coffee Milkshake Day with an Espresso Milkshake with Whipped Cream, Chocolate-Espresso Syrup and Pecans!
But WAIT! You do NOT have to use cold, leftover coffee or hot brewed coffee at all!
Cold brewed coffee is essential for a tasty coffee milkshake. Cold brewed coffee IS NOT hot brewed coffee that has been chilled. Cold brewing calls for an entirely different but very easy process: Combine ground course coffee with cold, filtered water and let sit for between 8 – 24 hours then strain when finished. Now you have coffee that is slightly less caffeinated, with less acid resulting in a less bitter taste. Blend with vanilla ice cream, chocolate, vanilla or hazelnut syrup. If you are of a mind (and of age) you can add a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream or Kahlua. Enjoy! [Source: Last Night's Parties...]
