"A combination of coffee and cola is delicious. You can also add whipped cream and dust it with cardamom on top. Add rum, rye whiskey, or brandy to make a cocktail." — D.A. Machine

I did not mix this drink by adding the coffee granules to the ice--what I did was mix the coffee into the half in half and stirred until the instant coffee dissolved, then poured it over the ice and then added the Diet Coke. Interesting drink. I liked that it combined my two favorite things, Diet Coke and coffee.
I used Diet Coke since it's my cola of choice. I also mixed the coffee into the half and half because I didn't think it would mix well otherwise. When the Coke meets the coffee and half and half, it puts on a big fizz show. Might be fun for a few minutes, but the taste just isn't something I care to experience again.
Well, all I can say was this was odd, different, yet not too bad. It kind of reminded me of a float after the ice cream was melted. Maybe, like putting a scoop of coffee ice cream on top of cold soda as it does bubble up quite a bit. The ice is definitely necessary. I needed one large glass for half the recipe. I used diet Pepsi for the soda. The drink also had an after taste of coffee punch, which I actually like too.
