MogoBlog MogoLicious Tasty Tip of the Day: Made with ice cream and just a few other easy-to-find ingredients, it’s easy to make, can be prepped ahead of party time, thrown together at the last minute, and will delight your guests!

The Best Coffee Punch


    • 1 gallon of whole milk {whole milk makes it creamier and thicker but you could also substitute a leaner variety}
    • 1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream
    • 1/2 gallon of chocolate ice cream
    • 1/4 cup powdered instant coffee
    • 2 cups of white sugar
    • 1 cup of water


    1. In a small saucepan, mix the coffee powder, sugar, and water and heat until the sugar has melted and all the ingredients are dissolved and well mixed.  Don’t boil.
    2. Refrigerate the mixture in an airtight container until you’re ready to use it.  The liquid will get kind of syrupy.
    3. Before the party guests arrive, pour the chilled syrup into a large punch bowl. Add the entire gallon of milk and stir.  Add all the ice cream {by scoops} into the punch.  Stir gently to mix.  The ice cream doesn’t have to melt all the way prior to the party … it serves as the ice, keeping the punch nice and cold, and will slowly melt throughout the party.
    4. If I’m hosting a large gathering, I like to make two or three batches of the syrup and store them separately in mason jars so I can quickly make another batch of punch without any extra measuring.
    5. Enjoy!  This rich and creamy coffee punch will quickly become a requested recipe that’s handed down through friends and served at every party, shower, or special occasion.
