This coffee ice cream punch recipe was published in Southern Living in 2015 and uses homemade coffee base (no instant coffee) for outstanding flavor.
I’ve served this decadent coffee ice cream punch in my hobnail punch bowl (passed down from my grandmother) at many a shower. Unfortunately, I’ve never taken a photo, so I don’t have one to share. But Pinterest is replete with images of various coffee punches taking center stage at a ladies’ gathering.
Coffee ice cream punch is a perfect beverage to serve at any bridal or wedding shower or tea. It is easy to make ahead of time and ALWAYS draws raves. It is so delicious that most guests will induldge in more than one punch cup:-) I’ve made this for most every shower I’ve ever hostessed, and folks can’t get enough of it.
This is the official Southern Living Coffee-Ice Cream Punch recipe, and it is the best (in my opinion). The coffee base is adapted from a recipe in Commander’s Kitchen Cookbook. The coffee concentrate can be made in large batches and stored in the fridge for up to a month.
Note: Don’t be tempted to skip the almond flavor; it makes a HUGE difference in this punch! I always add both vanilla and almond, but I never leave the almond out.
Trust me; folks will RAVE over this punch! It is decadent!!!If you host a shower or party, do try this. If you do, I’d love to have a photo of the punch to share here on the post:-) As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
