Long ago, in our graduate school years, we would go home when the library closed at 11 p.m. and make a batch of boozy ice cream.
Our specialties: Grand Marnier, Amaretto with crushed amaretti cookies, Harvey’s Bristol Cream Sherry and Kahlúa Coffee Chip.
We haven’t made them for years (there’s no room in the freezer when you’re a food writer). We miss boozy ice cream.
And trudging through trade shows and specialty food stores, we’ve personally come across only two brands with alcohol:
Wine Cellar Sorbets, a terrific line that unfortunately is no more.
Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream, 10 fab flavors of ice cream and sorbet that you can order online.
And more recently, we discovered Tipsy Scoop.
