Submitted for Mixers Club December 2021.
I wanted to attempt this profile after seeing it come up somewhere on the internet. Apparently Tiger Tail ice cream is big in Canada. It's supposed to be an orange and black licorice flavored ice cream. I've loved a few citrus and licorice combinations in my day, so I decided I'd give it a shot.
Originally I wanted a waffle cone thing going on here, so the mix was a bit more simple as far as the ice cream went. The licorice made it difficult to have that cone come through so I scrapped that idea and decided to try to fill out the ice cream more instead.
This is where I ended up.
The orange: I went with WF Orange Juice for the main orange note, because I thought it might meld well with the ice cream more than other options I initially considered. I dumped in a little SSA Bakery Oranges to give it a little boost, which I think worked well here, and quite possibly added a little something to the licorice component. That was the theory anyway.
The licorice: I really enjoy both of these flavors and I thought they would come together to fill out my licorice layer quite a bit without being too herbal.
The ice cream:. I tried a little something different than my usual ice cream base this time around. The WF Vanilla Ice Cream makes up the bulk of my base. SSA Ice Cream Vanilla ads in a little bit of a darker character to bring it away from your standard gallon tub of cheap ice cream. I added the INW Shisha Vanilla and WF Vanilla Cream Extra mostly for a little more feel and to kick a little more creamy vanilla goodness into the mix.
I hope you enjoy it! 🐯
Add your sweetener of choice. I avoid it most of the time, but it could benefit from a little sweetness if that's your thing.
