This weekend has been beautiful with this sun shining and the warm weather. It is time to get out the ice cream maker. Winter is officially over! Over the winter I did do a recipe series called “How To Have A Girl’s Night In.” It was all recipes that use various types of alcohol from drinks to food. Well, that series was a huge success for me. Plus it gave you an opportunity to hear about some alcohol companies you may have not heard about.
I decided I need a summer series, so the these for this new series is called: “Adult Summer Fun In The Sun” It will be all recipes that are for the adults because I am going to utilize those alcoholic beverages to create new drinks and frozen treats! This will be the first recipe in this series because, well it was the inspiration to do a series like this.
A long time ago Ben and Jerry’s had a ice cream flavor called White Russian. I really liked it, but it did have a tiny amount of alcohol in it, so they had to retire what was a popular flavor. I was 16 at the time, I didn’t know it had alcohol in it, I just knew it tasted good.
Well, since been so nice out, I been wanting to make ice cream. Looking over at my bar table, I saw 2 bottles sitting together, Roundhouse Spirits Corretto Coffee Liqueur and Pau Maui Vodka. I also had an ice for a moscato wine ice cream, So I went to Facebook and asked on Seduction In The Kitchen’s Page what did you as the fans want to see. White Russian won the poll, so I went about using these 2 flavors to create this creamy ice cream recipe.
*What makes this recipe so good is these two Liqueurs. The Roundhouse Corretto Coffee Liqueur, is a coffee liqueur like no other. In Italy, a “caffe corretto” is a coffee “corrected” with a shot of liquor. Roundhouse Corretto is a coffee liqueur that needs no correction though. It is handcraft Corretto in small batches using organic free-trade beans that are hand selected by blind roaster, Gerry Leary, of the Unseen Bean in Boulder. Then a touch of whole vanilla bean, and sweeten it with just the right amount. The end result is a wonderful burst of coffee flavors spiked in the Italian-style. The other big-brand stuff is made with corn syrup and has a whopping 91 calories per ounce while Corretto comes in at a svelte 53 calories. To get Roundhouse you can buy it online here
*Pau Maui Hawaiin Vodka is the perfect vodka to go with the Corretto. Pau Maui is the only ultra-premium vodka crafted from Hawaiian pineapples. While there is no hint of pineapple flavor in the finished product, the Maui Golden ® pineapple provides a nice, clean mash to start from. Once distilled, it is mixed with crystal clear Hawaiian spring water. They take great care in what goes into their vodka – and more importantly, what does not. Handcrafted in small batches by Haliimaile Distilling Company, Pau Maui vodka is the essence of purity and cleanliness. Every ingredient that goes into the vodka is born on the islands, and the utmost in care is taken to ensure purity at every stage of the process.
