Today’s tip concerns thinking outside the box.
Have you ever had ice cream and hot sauce? If it sounds strange, try this cocktail from El Jimador Tequila.
Ratchet up the heat on Cinco de Mayo with a “hot” ice cream cocktail.
The recipe includes ice cream, coffee liqueur, tequila, mango nectar and a few dashes of hot sauce. It’s an unlikely combination of ingredients that will delight your guests.
It uses reposado tequila, which is aged for at least six months until it mellows and achieves a light yellow hue. Aging takes the edge off and makes the tequila more compatible with ice cream.
This “hot ice cream shake” recipe will fill a large Martini glass. Have it for dessert with your choice of garnishes: chocolate shavings or a chocolate rim.
