Decided to make a Tropical Ice Cream with Fresh03. Went down the coconut/lime road and went with some Rum for a great boozy flavor.
Vienna Cream/Vanilla Swirl/Holy Vanilla: The ice cream base. After about a 5-7 day steep time, the vienna cream settles down and turns into a beautiful flavor and lends itself to a great ice cream flavor. Swirl/holy are used for the heavy vanilla that I love, and the swirl helps blend a lot of this together.
The two coconuts I take from HashSlingingSlasher from Leche de Coco. Its a beautiful coconut pairing.
The two limes I use for a heavy sweet lime. The lime wedge is a tad higher because after the steep, it fades very hard. I wanted it present in the final taste but not heavy.
The rum is just that, a beautiful spiced rum and pairs well with the tropical flavors to add something special
Jen Jarvis asked if I would like to make a fantasy based mix for her show. This is part of a multi show series she is doing. It sounded like so much fun, I was happy to take part. I decided to base a flavor off of Sephiroth from FF7. He is dressed in black and grey, reminding me of a black tea. What goes well with black tea, but some honey. I enjoy floral teas as well; enjoying rose, I decided to add that. Most of all, I enjoy ice cream. So how about an amalgamation of all this! I decided to make a rose water, black tea ice cream with honey.
An Australian based spin on a dessert. From what I saw this is something many Aussies enjoy, so I figured with the theme of Fresh's show, this is what I would try. This is a great full flavor red apple, like biting into a fresh red one. The caramel/butterscotch blend gives a deeper caramel taste, its "slightly high" but the apple muscles to the top. Rose is a little high, but needs to be there due to blending from the apple and the pear. You can drop it and get an amazing caramel apple as well.
