With all this sunshine we have been having recently, I thought it would be the perfect time to talk about one of my favourite things, Ice Cream! Because let’s face it who doesn’t enjoy a refreshingly creamy, rich and flavoursome bit of dairy goodness on a hot sunny day, or even cuddled up on the sofa in the evening sharing a tub with your special someone (trying to beat them to the best spoonfuls with all the chocolate chunks!)
So with my already established love of ice cream, I am getting very excited with the new trend of ice cream being a part of the wonderful wedding day, particularly as a part of the evening food. So if you too love the thought of having some ice cream goodness on your big day, here are a few different and exciting suggestions.
‘THE BEST’ Ice Cream – Sussex Ice Cream Company
Ok so I might be bias here, but I really do think that our Ice Cream would be the best ice cream to have, and here’s why:
• We use locally sourced produce to make it
• We are completely free from Gum, Stabilisers, E numbers, Artificial Flavourings, Colourings and Preservatives
• We use 100% double cream, allowing for that truly creamy taste
• It’s handmade, no machines!
• And of course, due to all the above, it tastes exquisite! (Trust me on this, I struggle to NOT eat a whole tub in one go!)
And to add to this strawberries have come back in to season (Yay!), so we have been to our local supplier down the road in Sidlesham near Chichester and the guys are busy making up some of their scrumptious Strawberries and Cream flavoured ice cream, Yummy!
‘How to serve it?’ I hear you say…
Well there are a few of options out there… anything from ice cream vans to bikes!
How about an Ice Cream Bar?
This would be setting up an Ice cream freezer within your venue with an artisan ice cream chef to serve a variety of flavours to your guests. the ice cream would be served in waffle cones or branded tubs. Guests would then garnish the scoops of creamy ice cream with homemade sauces, seasonal fruit or delicious multi-coloured sweets!
Ice Cream Bike or Caravan
Alternatively, if you want to add a bit of vintage glamour and something a little more quirky then how about this ice cream tricycle fitted with a large freezer. Again the ice cream would be served in waffle cones and branded tubs
Or you can opt for what some of Red Anywhere’s lovely couples have gone for, our vintage caravan!
Mixing it up!
The ice cream fun doesn’t have to stop at eating it, why not have some midnight milkshakes as a part of the evening food or as an alternative non-alcoholic option during the hot and sunny arrivals outside?
And to get really creative, why not try some interesting milkshake cocktails, such as:
* Salted Caramel and Bourbon Milkshake
*Irish Coffee Milkshake with Whiskey Caramel
*Piña Colada Milkshake
*Baileys and Kahlua Oreo Milkshake
And that’s only a few of the many delicious milkshake cocktails out there!
Here at Red we also make a wonderful Chilgrove Gin Fizz Cocktail using
*Homemade Chilgrove Gin & Pink Grapefruit Sorbet (secret recipe)
*Nyetimber Classic Cuvee
Remember to take the time to sit back and enjoy these warm sunny days in prime ice cream eating season… and remember you never need an excuse to create your own milkshake cocktail for your event or just for a get together with friends!
