Suburban Soiree

Recipe: Mocha Punch

Amy WileyComment

This is the recipe friends ask me for ALL THE TIME.  It's a delicious punch that my family's made forever... always at Christmas.  For big parties, I make a triple batch in this big silver pumpkin punch bowl.  I tried to find a photo of the actual punch, but I seem to only have funny pictures of friends putting a straw in the bowl or just tipping it back and drinking straight from it.  It's that good!

Mocha Punch
A holiday favorite from
  • 1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream
  • 1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 gallon milk
  • 1/2 pint whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs instant coffee
Set out the ice creams about an hour or so before to thaw. Mix sugar, coffee and a little milk to dissolve. Mix softened ice creams with milk. Add coffee mixture. Whip the cream (you can add some more sugar) and fold it in. It's best to mix in a big punch bowl and use a big spoon or spatula to break up the ice cream.
