Cigar City Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Brown Ale Ice Cream

I went to Cigar City in Tampa last weekend with some friends. My boyfriend and I brought back a few beers from the trip, including a growler of their Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Brown Ale. With a taste that is just as the name suggests, I felt like I had to make a dessert with it. I considered cookies but decided ice cream would be a great way to show the flavor. This is an easy way to make ice cream and you don't need an ice cream maker. It turned out very yummy and the beer's flavors come out strong in the final product.


1 can evaporated milk
1 can condensed milk
1 tsp flavorless gelatin powder
1 cup ORC or whatever beer you are trying to make ice cream with
1 tsp cinammon

Place the evaporated milk in the freezer a few hours before starting. Once it's frozen through, use a mixer and beat on high until it triples in volume. Add the condensed milk as you keep mixing. Dissolve the gelatin in a little bit of hot water, just enough to dissolve it. Add the gelatin, beer and cinammon to the mixer. Pour into tupperware and put back in the freezer overnight. Easy peasy! =]
