Whisky Ice Cream


Share on Pinterest

It must have been some 10, perhaps more, years ago that I watched some cooking show or other on TV and this little recipe caught my eye. As with so many another things, though, my memory of it slipped away along with the piece of paper on which I had scribbled down the recipe. I don’t know about you, but I like when that happens – I like having a favorite dish, drink, item, what have you, and losing it for years to later rediscover it and rekindle that old flame. Add to that the fact that it is summer, albeit a cold one, and the rediscovery of my old favorite ice cream recipe couldn’t have made me any happier. In short, I’m satisfied, and thought I’d share this gem of a recipe with you, whisky fanatics!

This recipe is really straight forward and doesn’t require much in ways of ingredients, tools or preparation. You will need:

  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 1.5c double cream (as you can see, this is ideal for weight watchers)
  • 1/3c of liquid honey – any old liquid honey will do, but feel free to try out exciting varieties as well
  • 1/3c of your finest (and by finest I mean cheapest) whisky

And the method is as follows:

  1. Whip the cream until it takes on a thicker consistency, add the whisky gradually
  2. Slowly add drop of honey into a pan and heat it up
  3. Meanwhile, give your egg yolks a good beating
  4. When the honey is warm, pour it into the bowl containing your egg yolks and keep on beating the mixture until it is thick and pale
  5. Carefully fold the honey and egg yolk mixture into the whisky-cream
  6. Pour the completed ice cream mix into a suitable freezer-proof container leave in your freezer for at least 3 hours.

Could it be any easier? Possibly, but it really isn’t that difficult so stop being lazy and try it out. Enjoy!

About Whisky Critic

My name is Martin and I live in Scotland. I love fine things in life, such as gourmet food, travelling around the world and, last but not least, whisky (naturally, I’m partial to a tipple of whiskey or bourbon as well). I have tasted hundreds of whiskies during the recent years and I finally decided to share my experience.
