Rummy Pistachio Milkshake

Last week I had the good, and tasty, fortune to sample a new line of Häagen-Dazs gelato flavors.  Yes, I realize it's a tough job but I'm only doing it for all of you.  Um, yeah, sure.  Anyhow, I ended up using most of the flavors to make mini crunch cakes but I still had some pistachio flavor left over in my freezer.

Tempted, though I was, to just eat it all standing up in my kitchen at midnight, I was equally in the mood for a boozy milkshake.  I already knew that spiced rum goes well with ice creams and gelatos and a bit of crushed up pistachios gave it a great, slightly salty bite.  I'm guessing that I don't need to warn you how incredibly easily this goes down on a hot day, right?  Cheers!

Per Serving:
1 Cup pistachio gelato or ice cream
1/4 - 1/2 Cup milk
1 1/2 oz. Spiced rum
Handful of chopped pistachios

Wet the rim of a jar or glass with a bit of softened gelato and roll the rim around in the chopped pistachios.  Add the gelato, milk and rum to a blender and pulse until smooth.  Pour into the prepared glass and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm up before serving.


  1. Dyin' over this one, love all of your creations!

  2. My husband would totally love this. Totally.

  3. I haven't see the fancy flavors of Häagen-Dazs gelatos here yet but I am guessing that rum would go nicely in any of their ice creams. I love the crushed pistachios around the rim. Very pretty!

  4. only doing it for all of us ;-)
