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.

  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!
