Crème Fraiche Strawberry Bourbon Shake

  • ½ cup strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ounce Oola Bourbon
  • 3 scoops Crème Fraiche Gelato from Snoqualmie Ice Cream Co.
  • ¼ cup cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup crushed pretzels
  • ¼ cup any good salted caramel sauce (We used Snoqualmie Ice Cream Co.’s signature from the Scoop Shop!)
  1. Blend strawberries and sugar to make a purée; set aside.
  2. Blend the Crème Fraiche Gelato, salt and cream.
  3. To assemble, pour strawberry purée into the bottom of glass, then add half the caramel. Sprinkle half of the crunched-up pretzels over the caramel. Pour ice cream over the top, drizzle remaining caramel and sprinkle remaining pretzels over the top! Fresh whipped cream is a nice touch as well.

Chilly “HOT” Chocolate

Chilly “HOT” Chocolate

  • 3 scoops Mukilteo Mud Ice Cream (from Snoqualmie Ice Cream Co.)
  • ½ cup cream
  • Zest of one orange
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier or any orange liqueur
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 habanero pepper
  • ½ cup dark chocolate pieces
  • Whipped cream and candied orange zest, optional
  1. Pour cream, salt and orange zest into a small sauce pan and simmer over medium heat for 5-10 minutes. The longer you steep the cream, the spicier it will become. Depending on how hot you want your shake, you’re welcome to split the end of the pepper; this allows the heat to infuse the cream thoroughly. If you like less of a kick, don’t cut your pepper. After 10 minutes, discard the pepper and allow cream to cool, or chill it.
  2. In a blender, combine cool cream and the rest of the ingredients. Blend until you’ve got a thick, creamy shake. Pour into chilled glasses, and top with fresh whipped cream, dark chocolate or candied orange zest.
