The Big Chill - a drink for a heat wave!

It's too hot to bake so I'm putting that off until the morning.  It's too hot to write so this one is short and sweet.  It's not too hot to enjoy an ice cream float - this one is my version of an adult take on a coffee ice cream soda, like the ones I used to make at Stewart's back in the day.  It's called the Big Chill, and I hope it lives up to its name!

Stay cool, dudes!

The Big Chill

1 oz. Rum
1 oz. Kahlua®
4 oz. Coffee
1 oz. Cream
0.5 tsp. Sugar
1 Scoop Ice Cream
Drizzle of chocolate syrup

Shake all ingredients but ice cream with cracked ice. Strain into tall glass or 12-oz. goblet that's been swirled inside with chocolate syrup. Top with ice cream and another drizzle of chocolate syrup. Serve with straws and long-handled spoon.
