A buddy of mine just happened to mention that one of his grandkids ate a bite of his ice cream once an immediately spit it out. :lol: Apparently he likes to pour bourbon on his ice cream.

Any body else here ever do that?

I'm thinking plain vanilla, since most bourbons have a lot of vanilla on the nosy.

Perhaps Crown Maple or WT Honey.....................but really?

I've poured MM on top of Buttered Pecan ice cream before... Tried it after having dinner at a local steakhouse that features MM ice cream on their menu - not bad actually.

What is MM? I'm new here. It's gonna take me a while to learn the shorthand.

MM is Makers Mark. It's generally favoured by many for cooking as it's a lighter 'wheater' bourbon that lends itself well to various savoury and sweet dishes. There's whole cook books dedicated to using bourbon in recipes, so I won't go to far into it..... But from my (somewhat) limited cooking experiences, bourbon can work well in meat marinades, sweet potato dishes, fudge, sweet sauces and even chocolates (Makers Mark and many other distilleries produce a chocolate 'bourbon ball' that has to be tasted to be believed!)

An ice cream store in Denver sells a Stranahans Brickle ice cream that is delicious, not quite the punch of straight bourbon on Ice cream but certainly delicious

I like a little Bourbon with a couple drops of Vanilla Extract on Coffee or Cherry Vanilla Ice Cream, and a little Rum on Butter Pecan. Yum.

I have some Weller 12 that tastes a lot like MM to me. It's a wheat bourbon too, so I guess that explains that.

I hit my vanilla icecream with a dash of bourbon when fancy takes me.

I actually favour something a bit fiesty like WT86.8 as the sweetness of the icecream helps soften things. Something like MM can get a little sickly sweet for my taste.

Haven't tried it yet, but next time homemade peach is available, I gotta try it. At least a bourbon chaser, anyway.

A local shop, Cupcake Royale, sells "Whiskey Maple Bacon Crack" ice cream. It is maple ice cream with Woodinville Whiskey and candied bacon. It is really rich, a bit bizarre, and pretty tasty.

I've never poured it, but I frequently enjoy sipping between bites. Not bourbon, but my favorite is vanilla bean and Balvenie Doublewood.

Going to have to try this. Also need to try some maple syrup with ice cream as I heard that is tasty too.

Best regards, Tony

I've made plenty of homemade icecream that has bourbon in it. Great stuff.

Same here. Sometimes I use Stagg, enough that the ice cream remains soft serve, even in my chest freezer at minus 12. HMMMM mmmmm good.

I generally do like using spirits on ice cream....though I do use liqueurs. However, I do love making bourbon milk shakes. If you are ever in Vegas and want a great burger and shake go to BLT Burger at the Mirage and order a Grandma's Treat spiked shake.

I've had it on ice cream but never in it.

I was drinking one night with the owner of a bar in town and he introduced me to bourbon and ice cream. I thought he was messing with me at first. It was pretty much a scoop of vanilla ice cream and Jim Beam in a tumbler glass. Kind of a bourbon float. It wasn't half bad.

A Brandy Alexander substituting Bourbon isn't half bad either.

Wasn't crazy about it ON the ice cream, but like others - sipping while enjoying ice cream is pretty amazing (although, I will say - it seems to go better with Scotch than Bourbon for whatever reason - YMMV)

Scotch and ice cream, the adult midday treat.

Brandy Alexander is basically a booze milkshake.

My wife's grandmother liked them so much she named her dog Brandy.

I have a buddy in San Antonio who is looking to start up a company called "Saucy Sweets" and the focus is all booze-infused desserts.

He did a rich corn ice cream made with Baby Blue that was really fantastic. Can't wait until he gets this off the ground.

Just tore into some Bourbon and Coke icecream from a local joint, Crank and Boom! Fantastic stuff. Now for the real thing...

Not bourbon, but tasty. Had this at a place in Dubrovnik, Croatia while on vacation last month

I have to admit I've been skeptical, because the thought of the combination of bourbon and dairy products has never struck me as a good idea, but I just tried it. I put one generous scoop of ice cream in a rocks glass/tumbler/Old Fashioned glass, added a healthy splash of bourbon, and went at it with a spoon.



The verdict: wow, this is freaking tasty! Ice cream is delicious just by itself, but it seems bourbon really can make almost anything better. :)

My buddy made a chocolate ice cream with GTS in it. It was almost impossible to get frozen but was amazingly good. Nice bourbon flavor mingled with the chocolate made it very good.
We had it after a buffalo steak and a flight of the 2009 BTAC.

One of the local ice cream places makes their Bourbon Ball flavour with Old Forester. Damn fine ice cream, can pick up the bourbon taste in about every bite.

Not bourbon, or ice cream (SO WHY AM I POSTING ABOUT IT!?) but I had some cappuccino gelato with a Stone Russian Imperial Stout tonight. Really excellent pairing.

That sounds good. I'm a big fan of Stone products.

Publix grocery has a seasonal limited edition "Deep Dish Apple Pie" ice cream that is awesome with bourbon. It's apple flavored ice cream with apple chunks and sugar-rolled pie crust pieces, swirled in with with a cinnamon and brown sugar sauce. :yum:

We actually make a Woodford Ice Cream at work that we serve with our pecan pie in the steakhouse. The pecan pie has a healthy dose of Woodford in it too.

I decided yesterday that Jack Daniel's would go good in a vanilla milshake. 2oz JD Distiller Series #1, 1 Cup milk and all natural vanilla ice cream goes well together. Got the idea when I was thinking about the milkshake scene in the movie "Pulp Fiction"

I've tried a few combinations but alcohol on ice cream doesn't work for me.

Julia Child has a recommendation in a 1970's book, one of her volumes chronicling a latter-day TV show where she featured American cuisine and other dishes for relatively informal parties. The dish is vanilla ice cream in a dish, sprinkle teaspoon of instant coffee on top, and pour a jigger of bourbon or rum over. That's it. Simplicity itself and an excellent taste.
