Hi Ian, Yup! Very yummy! Especially chilled or over ice. (Although you have to drink it a tad more quickly then - before the ice eats all the hooch. Damn ice. Always sucking up my hooch.) I usually have one when we're dining out. Although ... <pet peeve /> It's kind of a crap shoot ordering one here in Houston! [Quite often the wait staff or bartender thinks they heard you order a 'Blanco Russian' instead. Grrrrr.] Also nice ... throw a jigger or two of Kahlua (or Godiva chocolate liquor) in your bowl of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream. Mmmmmmm! ... Thanks a lot Ian ... The diet coke sitting on my desk tastes especially bland now ... <incoherent mumbling /> RonL.
