White rum and chocolate turn this creamy ice cream, infused with mint leaves and coffee, into an adult-friendly summertime dessert.
Just a note on the amount of rum: alcohol doesn't freeze easily so adding it will make your ice cream more slushy than solid so you might want to lessen the alcohol a bit if you want it more creamy and solid.
Absolutely delish but needed some tweaking! I made some modifications to simplified the recipe. First, I combined milk, coffee, brown sugar, mint and egg yolks in a saucepan and whisked over medium-low for 15 minutes; no need to temper the eggs. I also reduced the amount of mint down to 1/2 a bunch which is about 20 leaves; I'm glad I did it because the flavor was well balanced. Another important process I did was to add rum a couple minutes before the end of freezing process, otherwise it may impede it. I wanted to have another layer of flavor but knew it may overpower the ingredients so I reduced the amount of alcohol down to 1 tsp. After alterations it is definitely a 5 star treat. - 27 Jun 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
