    Toby Jermain's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by a very nice cocktail waitress at a little neighborhood Mexican restaurant called Dave and Dar's in Denver about 25 years ago. The restaurant is long gone, but te recipe still lingers.

      I, too, have been making this for many. many years. Now that I go to bed a lot earlier than I used to, I make it with decaf instant coffee. The PERFECT nightcap!

      I have been making this ever since college.. Only instead of using 3 cups of sugar, I use 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of white Karo syrup.. Makes it smoother! Enjoy!
