there’s beer in my ice cream

Liz over at Food For Fun has been so supportive of Lilly Sue’s Bites and Brews and I always love reading her nice comments and fun ideas. Liz shares a passion for beer and one of her recent posts she experimented with Beer and Ice Cream…MMM…what could be better? ๐Ÿ˜€

Youโ€™ve read about Humphry Slocombeโ€™s ice cream book here before. Foodforfun has also detailed the purchase of my new ice cream maker as well as the adventures that followed. Today Iโ€™ll further those adventures and offer up a tale of combining two rock-star consumables: beer and ice cream.

Iโ€™ve enjoyed mixing stout and other dark beers with vanilla ice cream as a float, both in restaurants and at home. The caramel, chocolate, and coffee notes in a dark beer play off the creamy, cold chill of vanilla ice cream to make a fantastically fun adult dessert. (Though donโ€™t even think about combining ice cream with high-hop beers such as pale ales. This can only end with a โ€œyuckโ€ and subsequent dump down the drain.)

Always up for pushing the culinary envelope, I wondered what would happen if beer was an ice cream ingredient, rather than just a pour-over. HSโ€ฆ
