Author Notes: In my opinion this cocktail is the best dessert for a summer time dinner party.
After a three or more course dinner it is light and refreshing.
I do not like iced coffee because it is diluted with ice and looses the taste and aroma of coffee. I would never put ice even being in a hurry to chill it down.
Adding the liquor gives this Dessert Drink a real cocktail quality, and the ice cream in the same time mellows out the edge.
I used Sheridan’s Coffee Layered Liquor from Ireland that is a blend of dark, rich coffee liquor, layered with cool, smooth vanilla cream liquor.
