Coffee Milk Kick Shot

Posted on: Friday, April 18, 2014

A Rhode Island native recently introduced me to the state’s signature beverage, Coffee Milk. To many, this sounds like an odd combination. To Rhode Islanders, this is a staple and with much pride and enthusiasm, a must-try drink. After mixing a glass of milk with 2 tablespoons of the ubiquitous Autocrat Coffee Syrup (“the more syrup the better for the super sweet taste”), I was intrigued by the sweet and creamy blend. It reminded me of chocolate milk with more of a punch.

The smallest state’s bold, jolting syrup inspired me to revamp the afternoon treat into a nighttime libation. Similar in a bizarre way to a White Russian, I decided to mix coffee syrup, vanilla ice cream and yes, vodka in a shot glass for a mini pick-me-up. 

Coffee Milk Kick Shot

1 scoop  vanilla ice cream (I used Ben and Jerry's Vanilla)
ice cubes
1/2 shot vodka
1 shot light cream (or milk-your preference)
1/2 shot coffee syrup (Autocrat Coffee Syrup)
sprinkle of coffee granules

Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a small glass (a shot glass works well). In a shaker, combine ice cubes, vodka, and cream and shake vigorously. Pour the frothy mixture atop ice cream. Drizzle with the coffee syrup and a sprinkle of coffee granules. Serves 1.
Instead of an after-dinner cordial, try this mini burst of sweetness at your next get-together. It's also a great way to kick off a long weekend!
