This is from a fellow blogger “View from a Great Island.” If you want to “taste” the Holidays and feel really special while you figure out the menu, recipes etc, make yourself one of these. It will make your toes curl!!
Serves 2 – 4 (or in our house, 1!)
1 pint container Haagen-Daz butter pecan ice cream
1 oz Wild Turkey 101, or a little more, at your discretion
1 oz Amaretto Liqueur, or a little more
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
pinch of salt
4 tbsp unsalted butter
Make the caramel sauce by mixing the sugar, cream, butter and salt in a saucepan and heating to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, then pour into a jar and let cool. If the sauce thickens too much after cooling, microwave it for a few seconds
For the cocktail; blend the ice cream, the Wild Turkey and the Amaretto in a blender until smooth.
Serve in fancy glasses with a drizzle of the caramel sauce.
If you would like to make this ahead, put the whole blender container back in the freezer after blending and then give it a quick re-blend right before serving
