It’s already time to savor summer according to recent Gourmet De Ville article titled, “Savor Summer with Homemade Ice Cream” and what better way to take the edge off a hot and stressful day than to smother it in Dumante Verdenoce Pistachio Liqueur. Blogger, Michael Cole focuses on a custard based pistachio ice cream recipe from the BBC noting its “smooth richness not found in traditional cream based recipes”.

“One of my favorite innovations in this recipe is that the pistachios are ground up and diffused evenly throughout the mixture rather than added whole just before the freezing process.”

Cole gives some great tips on how to successfully make custard based ice cream in your own home, now it’s up to us to explore the pairing. Dumante Verdenoce is made of real Sicilian pistachios, five natural vanilla flavors, and a molasses base liqueur leaving you with a long and smooth finish. The rich pistachio flavor of this liqueur compliments the BBC’s recipe for pistachio ice cream well. Actually, that’s an understatement. Dumante Verdenoce Pistachio Liqueur is divine served over ice cream. Whether you opt for the custard based or traditional store bought ice cream, remember everything is made better with pistachios!
