Who says pops are just for kids?
In the sweltering summer heat, you need a quick way to cool down and keep the party going. Here, in this refreshingly spirited volume, you’ll find a frosty collection of more than 150 booze-infused frozen desserts, such as:
- Blackberry Limoncello Sorbet
- Chocolate Martini Pudding Pops
- Amaretto Ice Cream Sandwiches
- Frozen Kahlua Cheesecake
- Maple Bourbon Sugar Shack Shake
I’ll teach you the basics of making ice pops, ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, semifreddo, granita, sorbet, ice cream sandwiches and frozen cocktails.
Reviews for Slushed!
“…I’m happy to have this book on hand for a summer full of boozy popsicles (frozen watermelon gimlets, anyone?), fancy palate cleansers (limoncello and mint sorbet), and cool tipsy desserts (dirty banana frozen yogurt, amaretto ice cream sandwiches, drunken sailor ice cream with spiced rum and candied orange peel). Be warned, you will need some tools—an ice cream maker, mixer, and blender as well as a candy thermometer and well-stocked pantry and bar. But the effort will be worth it once you’re sitting on the porch on a hot night, a cool Frozen Long Island Ice Tea at the ready.”
“Compared to the other alcohol-related book I reviewed this month, this one wins hands down!”
“Booze meets dessert in Slushed! by Jessie Cross. Frozen treats to be specific are the desserts in question here, as the entire book is essentially a guide to liquoring up your favorite frozen desserts…You’ll need an ice cream maker and a blender or a food processor for many of the recipes but for the most part they come together quickly and easily. Recipes like Roasted Pear Gelato with Eau de Vie and Kirch Infused Slippery Cherry Sherbet had me craving a scoop right off the bat.”

“This book is wonderful. The time of year has come to use it although it didn’t really matter to me that the first treat I tried was on a not so cold day. It’s a must have for summer parties. Your shelf shouldn’t be without this book.”

“Jessie really went through the time and effort to not only create wonderfully-delicious boozified treats, but to share them in a way that is crystal clear for even the most basic beginner in the kitchen. Her breakdown of techniques, equipment, and various ingredients was extremely helpful for me as I am new to the world of frozen treat making. I also loved the fact that she included homemade recipes for ingredients or toppings that taste a million times better than the plain run-of-the-mill storebought items. This book will definitely be my key to cooling off this summer!”

“I bought this for my library collection and tried the raspberry truffle ice cream. Its actually one of the most intense raspberry flavored ice creams I have ever had. I am now buying the book for my personal collection.”
