For Valentine’s Day, I thought we would bust out a pink drink.
This is Raspberry Frappe!
- 2 pints fresh red raspberries (or 3 - 10 oz packages of frozen raspberries)
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¾ cup Liquore Galliano
- 1½ cups cold milk
- 1 pint softened vanilla ice cream
- Crushed ice
- Puree raspberries, using blender, sieve or food mill. Strain to remove seeds. Combine lemon juice, sugar, Galliano and raspberry puree; stir in milk and ice cream. Fill glasses with crushed ice, then with frappe mixture. Serve with straws.
I’ve got to be honest, though. The real reason I picked this is because Tom’s parent’s were recently visiting, and Tom’s mom requested a “yummy” drink. I can’t think of anything that makes a drink yummier than ice cream.
Well, maybe chocolate would make it yummier, but I had fresh raspberries and some vanilla ice cream on hand, so we whipped these up.
“I thought so. Is it sweet?”
The Verdict: Delicious
From The Tasting Notes –
Even though this drink looks like it would taste like a raspberry shake, it didn’t. It wasn’t overly sweet and you could definitely taste the Galliano. There was a nice fresh raspberry flavor and it was very creamy. Sort of a Midwestern version of a tropical drink. It was different and delicious. And very pink!
