I scream, you scream, we all scream for boozy ice cream!

So make some ice cream with added alcohol for National Ice Cream Month (July).

We’ve love this recipe for Bananas Foster ice cream.

We received it from Slane Irish Whiskey, one of our favorite brands. The recipe was created by Taylor Lax, @the.cocktail.bandit.

The recipe is a riff on Bananas Foster (link): bananas caramelized with brown sugar.

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, we even have a hack for you, below.

By the way, “I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream” was a popular song, published in 1927.

The tune became a traditional jazz standard, while the lyrics refrain “I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream” has remained a part of popular culture even without the rest of the song [source].

This novelty record has the premise that it’s a fight song for a fictitious Eskimo college football team. Here’s the song (there’s a long musical introduction before the words begin).

If you want to play it on your own ukelele, here are the chords and words.

Bananas Foster ice cream is banana ice cream with the brown sugar and alcohol components of Bananas Foster.

Bananas Foster itself is a more elaborate version of caramelized bananas.

Sliced bananas are sautéed in butter with brown sugar, banana liqueur and Grand Marnier (orange-infused brandy) or rum.

It is then flambéed at the table for a dramatic effect, and spooned over vanilla ice cream.

Along with Cherries Jubilee, Christmas Pudding, Crêpes Suzette and Steak Diane, it’s one of the flambeed classics.

Here’s the history of Bananas Foster and the recipe to make it.

Turn it into a sundae by topping the ice cream with caramelized bananas.


While this recipe was made with Irish whiskey in honor of Slane, you can use rum, Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur.

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cup whole milk
  • 2 ripe bananas (the riper the better)
  • .5 cup brown sugar
  • .75 cup Slane Irish Whiskey
  • .25 cup orgeat almond syrup
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 dashes Angostura bitters (substitute other bitters, e.g. fruit or chocolate)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional garnish: fresh banana slice or dried banana chip
    Variation: Along the idea of the Bananas Foster sundae idea mentioned above, you can mix caramelized bananas into this ice cream recipe:

    Omit the bitters. Chop 1/2 cup or more of caramelized bananas and stir them into the ice cream when it comes off the churn (soft).


    1. PLACE the ripe bananas and brown sugar over medium heat. Let them brulee. Let cool.

    2. HEAT the milk, cream and sugar until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture starts to simmer. Remove from the stove.

    3. BLEND all ingredients until smooth. Put the mixture into an ice cream maker and process for 30 minutes. Deep freeze overnight before serving.

    Note that due to the alcohol content, the ice cream will not freeze as firmly as conventional ice cream.

    4. PLATE as desired.


    1. MASH very ripe bananas and stir them into a softened pint of vanilla ice cream.

    2 Blend in 1/4 cup whiskey or rum and taste. Add more as desired. Place the ice cream back in the freezer to harden.
