Ingredients (Serves 4)
- Whip the cream in a mixer until creamy.

- Grate a little coffee bean over the coffee. Serve immediately.
This drink relies heavily on aromatic and strong espresso. Be sure to use espresso beans.
If I want a particularly good espresso, I go to the nearest cafe, take a cup with me and have a few cups filled there.
Put the espresso in the freezer to chill. This keeps the ice compact for longer.
The ice cream must be very hard. Freeze immediately after purchasing and freeze for several hours before preparing.
Amaretto or rum can be used instead of Cognac, Baileys instead of Irish whiskey. Or homemade egg liqueur (see below for recipe).
