keeping promises


i promised a student i would post the recipe to the cold cappuccino drink i have made and brought to class throughout the year. i call it "Cappuccino Punch" and can be served in a punch bowl by adding the ice cream and milk at the very last second. it's an amazing drink, if i do say so myself....and i don't even like coffee.

Mix the following in a large pitcher, being sure the Folgers crystals and sugar disintegrates in the hot water before adding cold water.
1 quart hot water
2 oz. Folgers crystals (decaf or not...depends on how sugared up you want to be)
2 cups sugar
1 can Hershey's syrup
2 quarts cold water

Refrigerate overnight, and at serving time add 2 quarts milk and 1/2 gallon ice cream.

this recipe makes a TON, so i usually half it. a half recipe makes about one large pitcher.
this will be a nice COLD treat when the summer days get HOT.
