This Bourbon Coffee Ice Cream might just blow your mind!

Bourbon Coffee Ice Cream #IceCreamforOXO

Coffee plus ice cream already blows my mind. I can get my caffeine fix and eat ice cream all in one shot? Bring it on! Speaking of shots… Let’s add some bourbon to the mix, shall we?

Yes, we shall!

Oh, what’s that?

Do you want something crunchy?

How about some walnuts? Sounds good to me too.

To make this ice cream I followed a recipe that I’ve made before and just added walnuts and bourbon near the end of churning. I already knew this recipe was a winner so I figured, why fuss with it too much? If you don’t want to add the bourbon and walnuts, you can omit them and have a perfect coffee ice cream.

You guys know my pals, OXO don’t you? Well, they sent me a bunch of their tools that helped a lot while making this ice cream.

I just love them over there. They make the most useful kitchen equipment that really makes my life easier while cooking or baking.
