  • Medium saucepan
  • Container for freezing


  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Strong Coffee
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Orange Peel or Sprig of Mint For garnish


  • Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan. Put over medium high heat until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool.
  • For the coffee, you can use instant coffee. I prefer to make a strong batch of coffee in a Moka pot. Let it cool for a few minutes. If you plan to have this treat a night, you may want to stick with decaffeinated coffee.
  • Combine the two in a container and place in the freezer.
  • Scrape it on the top with a fork and serve in a small cup.
