Kahlua and Cream Can Kiss My Grits....

Ok, I originally found the idea for this cocktail somewhere on Pinterest, but when I went back to find it, I got pin-blocked.  Has that ever happened to you? You see a pin that looks absolutely amazing but when you try to delve deeper, the pin has been blocked due to spam or porn or...whatever?

Yeah well, I'm not so easily dissuaded.

The original recipe called for Bailey's, some kind of Birthday Cake vodka, and coffee cubes (strong coffee, frozen in ice cube trays).

My version? Well, when I went to the store looking for the vodka, I came across UV Chocolate Cake Vodka, and I'm sorry, but isn't chocolate ALWAYS better? Yes, I thought so, too. And, frankly, I don't need that much hard liquor in a drink I am most likely going to have late at night or right smack in the middle of the day, like...after breakfast. Or instead of breakfast. Or, well, you get the idea.

But Mmmmmm when you put it all together, its like a wicked iced mocha. So, that's what I am calling it. Beth Anne's Wicked Iced Mocha. And yes, in case you're wondering, I'm having one right now..... jealous?

The most beautiful picture, this is not. But do you really think I was going to waste time going for photographic gold when THIS was calling my name?

Wicked Iced Mocha

4 or 5 coffee cubes
1 ounce heavy cream
1 ounce UV Chocolate Cake vodka (more or less, depending on what time of day it is)
