    Bourbon Gelato

    Bourbon Gelato from Volare Italian Resturant in Louisville this weekend. Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Just down the street from Bourbon's Bistro.

    Since there's fruit with it, it must be good for you, right?

    Definitely in the health food category, I'd order two.

    Was the bourbon flavor noticeable?

    It was noticeable, but more of a hint of bourbon, not overpowering.

    Too much bourbon and the gelato won't freeze properly. It's a pretty fine balance to get the right consistency and taste like bourbon.

    I used to work for a gelato maker and we would make wine and champagne flavors all the time. That were pretty good. One year we did a Guinness champagne for St Patricks day. That was not so good. I wonder what type of bourbon they used in the recipe?

    I was afraid to ask, figuring it was probably a bottom shelfer

    Funny thing is it wouldn't really matter. We always used the cheapest champagne and box wine for our stuff. A high end hotel sent several bottles of $100 a bottle champagne for a special order that they wanted. You couldn't tell the difference. As my boss said, once you add sugar and water then sick it in the freezer it all taste the same.
