The chapters include Boozy Ice Cream, 80 Proof Specialties, Cocktails on a Cone, Tropical Treats by the Scoop, Spiked Sorbets and Sherbets, and Tipsy Sundaes and Floats. There are simple recipes like Vanilla Ice Cream with Brandy or more comples recipes that involve making simple syrups and cooking down fresh fruit (in the sorbets, for example). All of them have very simple to understand directions, though, to make things go smoothly.
In addition to the recipes, there are some serving suggestions as well. Information on how to make certain toppings like Vodka Strawberry sauce or Whisky chocolate sauce! YUM!
Honestly, I wouldn't change a single thing about this little book! I loved it!
Now this book came along and I've tried out a few of the recipes. They all follow the same basic steps at the front of the book but they add the crucial element of booze! I have to admit, I was a little startled by the use of gelatin in most of the recipes. But these recipes are a far cry from those college year jello shots. They have such elegant flavors but you can definitely taste the booze.
The alcohol makes the ice cream the perfect consistency because it doesn't quite freeze. Usually homemade ice cream is the best when it comes right out of the ice cream maker. Once you put it in the freezer it becomes hard as a rock. Not this kind. It stays perfectly soft whether right out of the ice cream maker or right out of the freezer. I tried several recipes, my favorites are The Vanilla with Brandy, Mojito sorbet and the Chocolate Guinness mmmm!!
Maybe this is in mine only? If so, maybe another copy will solve the problem.
Anyone else missing pages?
One of the nice things about this cookbook is the authors share with you both their process for reaching the final recipes and teach you how to make your own. If you haven't made ice cream before, don't sweat it. The book starts with everything you need to know. You will not only be able to get it right, you'll be able to make it great.
Although we've tried a number of the recipes from this book, I know we're no where close to being finished with all the recipes we want to taste. The consistent response was "So good it's evil" and similar comments. They are so good you won't want to wait until summer to start making the best "happy" ice cream around. The Guinness ice cream on page 82 was the first test. I'm not sure how long we'll be able to wait before making another batch. Thanks to great little counter-top ice cream maker models, the potential is nearly unlimited.
Rather than give away any spoilers on recipes or risk someone failing for lack of instructions at the beginning of the book for important techniques, I'm going to share one of the recipes you can use tonight. Although putting this on ice cream purchased from the store borders on sacrilegious, it's not a big enough offense to justify more than a small bit of penance.
