Root Beer Ice Cream

Root Beer Ice Cream | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

This morning I had a splendid lengthy post written about how amazing this ice cream is. My hilarious words really were quite magnificent if I do say so myself. My description of good frothy versus bad frothy was absolutely brilliant. I can almost guarantee that you would have laughed yourself right out of your chair. But instead of that happening, you’re just going to stare at the screen with a blank look on your face today as you read my post, because the unthinkable happened, and my computer decided to have the biggest brain-fart ever, deleting every little itty bitty word that I had typed. In one second, my witty words had disappeared, my laptop was thrown down in disgust, and my attitude took a quick turn towards the nasty side. So you won’t get to hear about how this ice cream made my tongue smile. You won’t get to hear about dogs and their disgusting frothiness. You won’t understand the enlightening final sentence of my unseen post, in which my tongue tells me, “You rock, but in the future run, run fast, run harder than you ever have in your life before, run like you’re being chased by a dog that wants to spit in your mouth.”

Suggestions:

  • Top the ice cream with whipped cream before serving.
  • Use a good quality root beer in this recipe. That means one that comes in a glass bottle, and not one that comes in a can or a 2-liter bottle.

Improvements:

  • Over medium-low heat, cook a bottle of root beer down until it has become thick syrup and then drizzle over the ice cream before serving.
