Having reviewed books for quite awhile now, I have been privileged to read some rather great ones. Every once in awhile, however, one crosses my desk that makes me think: “Man, I wish I had written that one.” Valerie Lum and Jenise Addison’s Ice Cream Happy Hour is one of those books.
Instructions and conversions are provided, along with fabulous images. My suggestion is to purchase two, one for yourself and one to replace it when your guests steal your original copy.
The book is outright simplistic brilliance. So obvious is the combination of ice cream and liquor, so beautiful the resulting colors, and such honeymoon-bliss the flavors – I kick myself for not thinking of it before these two culinary artists who met while working at Bierkraft in Brooklyn.
