Maple Vanilla Bourbon Ice Cream

Maple Vanilla Bourbon Ice Cream


Author Notes: The height of lazy ice cream making is a Philadelphia-style (no eggs) ice cream sweetened with maple syrup and vanilla extract and enlivened with a bourbon kick. A charmingly sweet rendition includes Maker's Mark, but you can get creative with it with a rye. You could also add the seeds of a vanilla bean, but this recipe is all about laziness, so I usually forgo the vanilla bean.

This is adapted from the Philadelphia ice-cream recipe that comes with the KitchenAid ice cream maker.

Directions

  1. Combine heavy cream and milk in a pot over low heat. Stir in maple syrup. As maple syrup is a liquid, you really should not have to heat this up beyond lukewarm to reach a consistent mixture. Stir in vanilla extract. Refrigerate until cold.
  2. Add cream/milk/maple syrup mixture to your ice cream maker. Churn as directed.
  3. Shortly before the ice cream is finished, pour in the bourbon.
  4. Freeze until solid. Enjoy.
