3 – DIY Boozy Ice Cream with Svedka!
Too hot to travel outside? We feel you. Svedka recommends creating your own boozy concoctions. Invite some friends over and get a buzz while fulfilling your sweet tooth. My personal favorite? The ‘Slide on In’ – recipe below.
- 1½ parts SVEDKA Vodka
- 1 part coffee liqueur
- ¼ cup vanilla ice cream
- dollop whipped cream
- melted chocolate
- ½ cup crushed ice
INSTRUCTIONS: Combine ingredients except for whipped cream and melted chocolate in a blender and blend for 20 seconds. Treat a sundae glass with melted chocolate drizzle, and dump blend in a glass. Garnish, and dust with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Striped straw optional.
