White Russian

A long time ago Ben and Jerry’s had an ice cream flavor called White Russian. I really liked it, but it did have a tiny amount of alcohol in it making it alcoholic ice cream. Ben and Jerry’s retired White Russian. 


White Russian Ice Cream


White Russian Ingredients

What are the White Russian ingredients?

  • 1 2/3 oz (5 parts) vodka

Can I take a White Russian cocktail recipe and make it into alcoholic ice cream? I think so!

Looking over at my bar table, I saw 2 bottles sitting together, a Coffee Liqueur and Pau Maui Vodka.  So I went about using these 2 flavors to create this easy homemade ice cream recipe. Afterall who would not want an alcoholic ice cream??

Maui Snow

How did this White Russian ice cream come up with the name Maui Snow? It is because I used Pau Maui Vodka. Here is a little bit about this Hawaiian Vodka:

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. Handcrafted in small batches by Haliimaile Distilling Company, Pau Maui vodka is the essence of purity and cleanliness. – Pau Maui Website


So why not rename this White Russian ice cream to Maui Snow in honor of the vodka that is one the White Russian ingredients! Trust me this alcoholic ice cream is da bomb!
