A frappe is an after dinner drink usually consisting of a liqueur, such as creme de menthe, poured over cracked or shaved ice. This recipe doubles the strength of the coffee, but leaves out the liqueur. For some cocktails worthy of being a dessert, check out Dessert Cocktails.
Coffee - A Life Saver?
People who drink the most coffee are much less likely to die sooner - from any cause - than those who drink the least. That's what American and Spanish researchers found after analyzing the diets of nearly 128,000 men and women for 18 to 24 years. "Most" in the study was four or more cups a day; "least" was less than one cup a month. Less heart disease accounted for most of the difference. The connection was strong even after taking into account body size, smoking, diet, existing diseases and caffeine intake. The researchers conclude that drinking a lot of coffee isn't likely to make you die sooner than expected and it might even be protective.
