One of my favorite ways to create a recipe is to mix things I love that wouldn't normally go together. This cocktail is a love child of such mixing. I like whiskey… I like peaches… I like cream soda… and I LOVE ice cream. It might sound like a bit of an odd mix, but wait till you try it. It's absolutely amazing.
whiskey (I used Bulleit)
vanilla ice cream
In a mug, combine two tablespoons peach purée, 1 1/2 ounces whiskey, and fill close to the top with cream soda, leaving room for one scoop ice cream. Mix the ingredients with a spoon. Add one scoop vanilla ice cream and sprinkle with a pinch of cinnamon. Enjoy!
This is a dessert and drink in one. It's perfect for a party and easy to prep in advance for a group. I hope you guys like it as much as I do! If you have a whiskey aversion (as some of the girls on my team do), replace it with the spirit of your choice. I would probably choose vodka as my second choice.
