It’s a special occasion whenever family comes into town. Tom’s mom came into town for a short visit and wanted to make ice cream with us. While her favorite flavor is plain vanilla, we decided to add another layer of complexity to the flavor by adding bourbon to the mix. While we think it’s just grand, if you aren’t feeling boozy, just omit the bourbon altogether. You’ll still have a delicious spoonful to enjoy with pie, cake, etc. without fussing with the additional steps.
