I had to report back that I made a trial batch of ice cream this afternoon. I have to borrow the actual ice cream maker but I made the recipe and technically it sits overnight before I turn it into ice cream. Hopefully I'll get the ice cream maker tomorrow afternoon and turn my base into ice cream early enough to make any changes if needed.
I used a whiskey that was blended with honey liqueur. I am not a bourbon or whiskey drinker but I tested this whiskey at an event and it has a faint smell/taste of caramel so I thought it would be a nice compliment to the peaches.
I made the ice cream base but I don't have peaches yet but if the 'base' is any indication this is a winner!! Fresh eggs, fresh cream, vanilla and a bit of reduced honey whiskey and I am tasting one of the best ice creams!
The taste is smooth almost caramel-like (just a hint) and I think it will be wonderful with the peaches added in! Since I reduced the alcohol out of the whiskey I don't taste whiskey just a nice smooth additional flavor.
I'll let you know how this turns out!
