Alcoholic Ice Cream Guide Genuinely Boozy Ice Cream Recipes

[05/01/12] 

Alcoholic ice cream with a genuine kick is something of an anathema. The problem is the freezing point of booze. It’s a lot lower than water’s so producing an ice cream with the right texture as well as a decent amount of alcohol is a puzzle of Fermatian proportions. The standard derivations you come across like Rum Raisin and Baileys don’t count. They wouldn’t excite a Lindsay Lohan rehab party.

Fortunately a couple of talented women from the States, Valerie Lum and Jenise Addison, have found a solution. Their process hinges on a dollop of gelatine so look away now if you wept in Bambie. Animal ethics aside, they’ve stuffed over 50 recipes like Pina Colada into their Booker prize worthy guide, Ice Cream Happy Hour, which makes a simple and cheap present (US$10), not to mention a great source for desserts.

The end result is you can incorporate a cup of 80 proof booze into a quart of ice cream - approximately 13-percent alcohol by volume - which is enough to kick-start a party on top of your brain freeze. Of course you’ll have to buy an ice cream maker to turn your cooking/chemistry dreams into a reality and you can buy one from Amazon for about US$60. Then all you have to do is wait for summer to return...
