still-sound 181. Mint ice cream
Brennan made this mint ice cream. He was inspired by an episode of Nigella Lawson's cooking show. She made it look so easy, combining whipped cream, sweetened condensed milk, booze and shaved chocolate. She threw the mixture into a baking tin lined with cling film.
She even gave a demonstration of how to best rip cling film (vertically). No need for an ice cream machine. The booze keeps the mixture from freezing too hard.
Brennan modified her recipe a bit. Nigella used coffee liqueur and espresso powder. Brennan used peppermint schnappes and ripped mint leaves. He gave me a portion of the frozen confection in a glass jar he purchased at Heath Ceramics. I'm going to eat it on the balcony when I finish writing this.
It's a new moon tonight and will be very dark on the balcony.
