Of course bourbon goes with everything — yes, even A-1 sauce.
I’ve tried it.
The pairing of ice cream and bourbon is nothing new, but what is new is the creative concoctions that come from the two.
For instance, in honor of September being National Bourbon Heritage Month, Trey Zoeller of Jefferson’s Bourbon got together with Andrew Llewellyn of Liége & Dairy to create three month-watering combinations of bourbon and ice cream.
Let’s take a look at those flavors:
• Trey-Fecta: What’s better than s’mores, bacon and bourbon? This has a graham cracker bourbon ice cream base with notes of marshmallow and bacon pieces. Holy cow (or pig?)!
• Papa Chet: Bourbon honey ice cream with pralines and caramel. (Chet is Zoeller’s father’s name with whom he started Jefferson’s Bourbon, and it’s also his son’s name. Zoeller also loves pralines since he went to Tulane University in New Orleans.)
• Jefferson’s Manhattan: Chocolate bourbon ice cream with cherries and chocolate chunks, which features Jefferson’s Manhattan cocktail mix in the recipe.
Personally, I’d like to try all three. But if I could only choose one, it would be the Trey-Fecta because I love anything with marshmallow in it (except for Peeps).
The flavors are available at both Liége & Dairy locations — one in Holiday Manor (2212 Holiday Manor Center) and one in Middletown (12003 Shelbyville Road) — through September, unless they sell out.
So run, don’t walk, before the chance for this bourbon bliss melts away …
