Booze flavored Ice Cream
I love Ice Cream mixed with some alcohol in it but I'm looking for some new flavors to try at home. Anyone have some good originals?
-I've tried a bunch of versions of Stout Ice Cream (Chocolate/Milk Chocolate/Malt)
-Avocado/Beer (taken from a local ice cream store)
-some whiskey Ice Creams
- Rum/Coconut, Rum/Banana
Some Tequila and Beer ideas would really be great.
My husband's favorite ice cream is Armagnac hazelnut praline. I make a custard with cream in which I have steeped hazelenuts. As the custard is cooling I add the Armagnac and let the heat burn off the alcohol. Then at the end of churning I add chopped up hazelnut praline. The key is to get enough Armagnac flavor without the alcohol which will prevent the ice cream from freezing.
Bourbon is great in brown sugar ice cream, with raisins or figs. Bourbon also works very nicely with maple and chocolate in ice cream. Here's a link for a bourbon ice cream with a touch of molasses and a maple-caramel swirl and candied bacon bits, adapted from a David Lebovitz recipe:
I think of using tequila and lighter beers (not lite beer) for sorbets, but here's a easy no-churn margarita ice cream recipe from Nigella Lawson:
Here's a recipe posted at chow using raspberry wheat beer. I'm not familiar with the brand of beer the poster used, but any fruit beer, such as Cherry Kriek, or a domestic fruit flavored wheat beer, would work:
