    Bourbon and ice cream?

    I don't usually (well, ever) have ice cream with bourbon but last night I was sipping some FR on ice and decided to have a little chocolate ice cream too--not mixed together!! Very good combination, just the right amount of sweetness in the bourbon to compliment the ice cream. Anyone else have a similar pairing?

    Oh yes, oh yes! Good call, Amy. I lucked into a pairing of a fudgsicle and Baby Saz, that had me on my knees shouting Hallelujah! The combo was utterly fantastic, though my neighbors think I'm a little off, and are beginning to whisper about me behind my back. Also, paired an Elmer T with a Blue Bell frozen miniature ice cream cone with chocolate on top. I've been working these two combos frequently, this Summer.

    Re: Bourbon and ice cream?

    Bourbon makes a great Ice cream topping, and it's the only decent use I've ever found for those "Mint Julep" bottlings. However, I make homemade Bourbon Ice Cream. I do need to work on a dark chocolate bourbon ice cream...or Nutella Bourbon Gelato...or (well you get the point)...

    Re: Bourbon and ice cream?

    Bourbon on anything sweet is very very good.
    My Bride likes to put a donut hole in a shot glass and pour bourbon over it.
    When blending up milkshakes skip the vanilla and add bourbon.
    I have poured it over pecan pie.
    It all works.

    Re: Bourbon and ice cream?

    Maker's over vanilla ice cream is da bomb!!! We made Vanilla - chocolate chip ice cream with Maker's Mark bourbon and served it at the KBF barrel relay a few years ago ... it was a big hit on a hot day ...
