bourbon ice cream

Ingredients

Servings: 1 quart

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon (or more) bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Special equipment

  • An ice cream maker

Preparation

Stir milk, cream, and brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a rolling boil (it may look curdled, but this is normal).
Meanwhile, whisk yolks, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl until mixture is pale yellow and sugar dissolves.
Place a medium metal bowl in a large bowl of ice water; set a fine-mesh sieve over metal bowl. Whisking yolk mixture constantly, gradually add hot cream mixture (to prevent the eggs in the yolk mixture from scrambling). Return to pan. Stir custard over low heat until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes. Immediately strain custard into metal bowl. Let custard cool completely, stirring often.
Stir 1 Tbsp. bourbon and vanilla into custard. Add more bourbon to taste by teaspoonfuls, if desired. Do Ahead: Custard can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.
Process custard in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Transfer ice cream to an airtight container, cover, and freeze. DO AHEAD Ice cream can be made 3 days ahead.
