Ice cream is not necessarily the ﬁrst mixer you think of for gin, but the combination of the two has been enjoyed for nearly a century – the inspiration for the following cocktail goes back to 1927. The drink is rich and indulgent, but balanced, and the really exciting thing is that the ﬂavor is limited only by the varieties of ice cream you can ﬁnd!
Add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously without ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with the decoration of your choice.
For an extra treat, add a splash (10–15 milliliters; two teaspoons; 1/2 ounce) of chilled sparkling wine to the drink after pouring.
