With Mardi Gras right around the corner, I thought this week I would feature a couple of adult beverages to go with he season. This first one is a wonderful drink with ice cream as its base.

2 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream

1 1/4 ounces Vanilla-flavored Vodka

1/4 ounce Walnut Liqueur

1/4 ounce Hazelnut Liqueur

1/4 ounce Amaretto

1 tablespoons Pecans, chopped for garnish

Combine all ingredients except the pecans in a blender and blend until thick and smooth. Pour into a stemmed glass and garnish with pecan pieces. Serve with a straw or spoon.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
