Giltric: Prey4reign: Sex in the swimming pool.  Never fails to refresh.

Been there done that....water seems to add friction which is bad for her if you are larger than average.


Now you're just bragging.

I don't know the exact recipe but my wife makes this frozen fruit thing... oranges, bananas, crushed pineapple, maraschino cherries (drained, so they don't make everything red)... all mixed together... add sugar, a couple of eggs and some water... mix well, freeze solid... then scoop out to eat... or... add malibu rum... awesome.

I grew up eating homemade ice cream. My grandpa always made the best. He was allergic to chocolate, so he experimented with a lot of different flavors. He had some peach trees in his yard, so he would make fresh peach ice cream. Everyone's favorite was his peppermint ice cream, though. I've been making it for years now based on his original recipe. You can use the kind of ice cream maker that takes ice and rock salt or the kind with the frozen bowl. Either works, but I like the ice/salt ones a little better even though they're more work.

I've never really measured, but for a 2 quart ice cream maker, I believe I use about 5 cups of whole milk. You can use cream or half and half, but it really isn't necessary. In my opinion, the whole milk gets the consistency perfect. I'm a fat guy and I like my ice cream, but even I don't see the need for using heavy cream here. This is rich and delicious enough without it. Next, you need some good peppermint candies. NOT the hard candies, but the soft ones that are kind of like after dinner mints. If you were to eat one, it would kind of melt in your mouth. They're sort of barrel shaped, rather than disk shaped. You can generally find them at any grocery store, but the brands vary. Use about 30 of them (usually about a whole bag), but you can adjust according to your own tastes. I usually pour the milk in a blender, then add a bunch of peppermints and let them sit for a while. They will dissolve quite a bit. You do NOT need to add any sugar. The sugar from the candy is all you need. Add about half a teaspoon of vanilla (again, your tastes may vary). Blend until very smooth, then pour into the ice cream maker and go.

This step is not strictly necessary, but it gets you the best texture. If you're using the ice/salt type of maker, then run it until it finishes. When it's done, cover the top with more ice and then put a towel over it. Let it sit about 20 minutes, then go for it. If you're using the frozen bowl type of maker, run it until it's as firm as it gets, then cover the bowl and put it in the freezer about 20 minutes.

In my opinion, this is the best ice cream ever. Better than anything I've ever had from any store or even any specialty ice cream place I've ever been to (and I've been to quite a few).

Drinking Vinegar aka "shrub" or "Sharaba" is surprisingly good. I had heard of them but never tried them until last year. They are, as they sound, vinegar BUT before you drink it you add some sweetener and fruit or herbs or both or, well, whatever. After aging it in your fridge for about a week, you fish out the fruit (which you can eat as a snack) and strain the vinegar into a clean bottle, pour some into your glass, top with chilled soda water and drop in an ice cube or two. It's surprisingly refreshing, supposedly healthy and a lot tastier than they sound.

I think it was a food thread last year before I tried them that I asked about them here and someone said they had drinking vinegar before and liked it. I strangely trusted them, made a watermelon version and now I agree they are tasty. I should make more.

Do not fret, dear Fark drunks - you can add booze. Apparently there's an entire category of mixed drinks based on Sharaba/Shrubs, but I've not tried any of those. Yet.

The Primal Margarita

3 parts tequila
1 part orange liqueur
1 part fresh lime juice
Pinch of coarse salt

Add everything to an ice-filled shaker
Shake
Pour over ice
Depending on how big you define a "part", you may now enjoy being in a variable gravity zone

I'm also partial to the classic "snakebite":  equal parts beer and hard cider.  Now that good cider is becoming something of a thing, it's fun to experiment with all the varieties out there.

/Favorite so far: Harp lager and Newton's Folly green apple cider.

Mango

Or just cutup a bunch of watermelon and toss it in a blender with some ice.

Juice from 12 lemons
1/2 cup honey
1 cup water
12 - 20 mint leaves
Fresh strawberries

Make a syrup from the honey and water by bringing it to a boil and simmering until it loses about a third to a half of its volume
When it just reaches a boil, toss in the mint leaves
When the syrup is the desired consistency, remove from heat, fish out the mint and let cool to room temp
Juice the lemons into a 2 quart pitcher
Add syrup
Fill the pitcher the rest of the way with cold water

Place 5 - 6 fresh strawberries and some crushed ice in a tall glass
Muddle until the berries are completely mashed
Fill the rest of the way with the lemonade

/For the grownups, a shot or two of decent vodka is delightfully appropriate

There's also the lazy man's daiquiri.

Buy a Sonic Limeade. Add rum.

Super easy no bake Lemonade Pie...an old school seventies dessert passed down for generations:

Graham Cracker crust (you can buy one or you can grind up a pack and a half of graham crackers with a stick of melted butter and press it into a pie tin)

Then in a big bowl with a big ol' balloon whisk mix 1 large can of frozen Raspberry Lemonade Concentrate, one 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk and one regular sized container of coolwhip.  Whip that sucker until it's a beautiful smooth creamy pudding type consistency.  If you want to get crazy, throw some real raspberries in there or some friggin' coconut or whatever you like...then pour it into the crust and freeze it.

It's not too terrible for you and it really satisfies your sweet tooth, your "ice cream" tooth and your "rich and creamy" tooth all at the same time.

Kirs on the deck - perfect.

Fill a wine glass with large ice cubes.
Fill 3/4 way with white wine (Chablis works well)
Add a couple glugs of cassis
Stir

Deceptively potent, hugely refreshing

Get an lN2 storage Dewar with a liquid withdrawal unit and save a bunch of time.  My son did that for Father's Day.  The speed of freezing means minuscule ice crystals...the smoothest ice cream I've ever had.  From mix and fruit to the bowl in 2 minutes.

I actually have access to LN2, so you would think I'd have already tried this, but I haven't. I think the sound of the ice cream maker going and the anticipation of it being ready really bring back memories for me.
