Peach schnapps mojito ice cream

"Icy Cool"

This is such a good ice cream flavor. It’s not all the time that ice creams can really take on the flavor of the alcoholic drink they are based on. The peach schnapps really shines through in this one, especially since I expected the cream and sugar to mask it.

This blog post is a whole month late. I made this and we devoured it in waffle cones and then I totally forgot that the recipe was not posted. So I’m back on the blog after a month break of not blogging only to see that the recipe wasn’t even written let alone posted.

My cousin said she felt that the ice cream would make her drunk. It tastes exactly like a peach schnapps mojito. It is so very delicious. We really had a ball with this one, the peach schnapps and the kick of the white rum really are present in every taste. The waffle cone was the perfect vessel for this very adult ice cream. I Imagine this would make a great dessert for a cocktail party

To take this ice cream to the next level which I highly recommend. Strain out the mint leaves before churning and add small cubes of fresh peaches, even canned peaches would still be good. Once the mixture is churned and at soft serve stir the peaches in. It will be amazing to chew on little peach bits while eating the cream.
