So this ice cream is a little dream of mine.  It’s also my first homemade ice cream ever.  If knew how easy it was, I would have stopped buying my ice cream at the store and starting creating my own fun flavors years ago!  I wanted an ice cream that had bacon in it, duh, but I also wanted something summery…and boozey.  Boozey treats make me smile and giggle to myself.  I thre everything together, crossed my fingers {because the ingredients make sense, but ya never really know until you taste}, and took a big bite.

This ice cream is amazing.  It’s super creamy with an amazing mouth feel.  I love the bits of peaches and the salty pops of bacon.  And the whiskey?  You get this perfect hint of the whiskey.  I couldn’t have asked for a better first ice cream.  Enjoy!

    I’ve just started making ice cream recently myself and I must admit, it’s quite addictive. So many flavor options! Love this peach with bacon and bourbon, Julie. I can just imagine the sweet and salty combo in all that creaminess – with the smoky addition of bourbon. And I am so excited about Bacon Month!!!
