I found a recipe for Bourbon and Maple ice cream a while back and have been waiting for summer to try it as it sounds devine
Last month whilst staying at the in-laws, my Mother in-law and I decided to cook up a 'Bettys Kentucky Derby Race Day Pie' recipe we found on the web, which basically ended up being like a pecan pie with bourbon and chocolate in it. We slightly over-cooked it, which dried it out, but otherwise it was delicious and went very well with vanilla ice cream on top.
"Remember, the BEST bourbon is FREE bourbon ..."
I second Tim....butter pecan is a great combo with burbon.
Quick question for those who put bourbon on their ice cream...do you just pour it straight on, or do you do anything to reduce it or otherwise make it thicker beforehand? Bourbon strikes me as much more liquid-y than most ice cream toppings like chocolate, caramel, etc.
Who stole the cork from my breakfast?
Ok... now I have to try bourbon on ice cream.
In the past, I have had a bit of dark chocolate with Macallan single malt... very good. I see no reason the same wouldn't be just as good with bourbon. I think I'll try that when I pour myself another RR here in a few minutes.
The Bourbon Maple Ice Cream Recipe is as follows: (from http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=e...&meta=&aq=f&oq= )
- 4 cups vanilla low-fat ice cream
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons bourbon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Place a large bowl in freezer. Let ice cream stand at room temperature 45 minutes or until softened.
With a rubber spatula or stand mixer, combine the softened ice cream, maple syrup, bourbon, and cinnamon in chilled bowl. Cover and freeze to desired consistency.
^^^ I'm going to try that in the next couple of days. It sounds yummy!
There was a gourmet ice cream company called Valentine's Ice Cream that was located in Winchester, KY (just outside of Lexington). They had a bourbon chocolate that was one of the best things I've ever had. They also had a bourbon ball ice cream that was a close second. I would pick up a pint at Liquor Barn when I made my runs, but alas they are no more.
