The Marriage Pact is deliciously creepy so you’re almost immediately worried for Alice and Jake. Newly married, happy, successful – but then there’s the Pact. They’re invited to join a jet-setting community of interesting souls who all share one thing: they want their marriages to be successful. What’s the harm in that? Just wait. And while you wait, to combat summer’s heat, why not take a scoop out of a Richmond Float?
2 oz. Green Spot Irish Whiskey
Boozy Vanilla Bean Ice Cream*
Bourbon Maple Syrup
Drizzle maple syrup inside glass. Add two scoops of ice cream and the whiskey.
Fill glass with root beer. Drizzle more maple syrup on top.
Boozy Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 vanilla bean, split
3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
4 egg yolks
Pinch fine sea salt
3 Tbsp Green Spot Irish Whiskey
Set aside one cup of the cream in a metal bowl. Place the bowl in a container filled with ice water.
In a medium saucepan, combine the remaining cream, the milk, the vanilla bean, the sugar, and the salt. Heat on medium until the sugar is incorporated and it just begins to boil.
Remove from heat. Let sit, covered, for one hour.
Finely strain this mixture into the chilled cup of cream.
Add the whiskey and refrigerate for three hours.
Process in your ice cream maker.
