How to make alcoholic ice cream, the greatest dessert of all time
You love booze. You love ice cream. Unfortunately, if you cram ice cream full of alcohol, it won’t freeze. If only there were a way… THERE IS! Meet the ladies who cracked the code.
Alcohol flavored ice creams are abundant: Bailey’s, Guinness, Jack Daniels, Rum Raisin—they’re everywhere. But none of them have any kick. Why? Because alcohol’s freezing point is waaaaay lower than water’s, which means that it’s damn near impossible to get boozy ice cream to retain that lovely, semi-solid form we so adore. So there’s no booze in them, which is STUPID.
Thank god for Valerie Lum and Jenise Addison, who figured out how to stabilize the alcohol using gelatin (look away, vegetarians).
