    Anyone have any good recipes for mix drinks made with ice cream? Something along the lines of those shakes Red Robin offers.

    My girlfriend is looking for something a little different for tomorrow and I couldn't find anything in any of the mix drink books I own. Personally I'd just as soon stick with beer or scotch, but what the hell, as long as there's booze in it, I'll play along.

    Thanks.

    I was going to suggest a Grasshopper, which I used to order when I had the drinking habits of a 16 year old girl (7 & 7, rum & coke, etc.)....turns out the Grasshopper is made with shaved ice and cream. Oh well.
    Here's one for you, there are others.

    Godiva Ice Cream Soda


    Godiva Ice Cream


    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 1/2 ounces Godiva Liqueur
    4 ounces Cola
    1 Scoop Vanilla Ice Cream

    Pour Godiva in tall glass. Add cola. Top with ice cream.

    Problem with ice cream drinks is the alchohol will thin them out very quickly. Therefore you can't use very much booze(or you have to overcompensate with the ice cream). Best to typically stay with liquers like Kahlua, the Godiva mentioned above, etc, rather than vodka, rum, etc. Plus they have much more flavor.

    Vanilla ice cream, milk and some Kahlua makes a great frozen Sombrero. Add a touch of Vodka for a frozen White Russian.

    But... I doubt you can go drinking these all night without some serious hangovers caused by all the dairy.

    Good Luck, Have Fun and Be Safe !!!

    Check this out

    Volcano
    1 - 2oz 150 proof white rum
    Light on fire

    Add chocolate and vanilla liqueur ( 1oz each)
    to a few scoops of vanilla or chocolate ice cream and mix to a milkshake consistency.

    When the fire goes out, add the milkshake mixture to rum and stir gently. Top with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles and a strawberry.

    Enjoy

    Now Richard, that's what I'm talking about. If I have to do foo-foo drinks, I at least want to do ones with attitude![​IMG]

    Although impressive to look at, you're burning off all the alchohol !!!! If you've got a long drive home, it's a great idea... but otherwise....

    Another good mixer with ice cream is Baileys.

    How about a Mudslide?
    Vodka
    Khalua
    Baileys
    Frangelica Liqueur (hazlenut)
    Godiva Liqueur (chocolate)
    Vanilla or Chocolate ice cream

    Not bad....and you can get quite a bit of alcohol in it without it tasting like it!!

    (Chicks love 'em....)

    Mudslides are good. Only drawback is (in resturonts) you will get full before you get a buzz.

    Just do a google search. [​IMG]
