Screamin’ for Ice Cream

Los Gatos’ Silver Moon, which makes ice creams and sorbets with high-end liqueurs, has just launched two new tipsy flavors.

They are: Lavender Limoncello sorbet and Bourbon Vanilla Bean ice cream.

What with the recent heat spell, I couldn’t wait to dig a spoon into the samples I received recently.

In both new flavors, the boozy-ness is very subtle, mostly as a back-note.

The Lavender Limoncello reminded me of refreshing frozen lemonade on a summer’s day. The lavender was barely noticeable, which might be a plus for so many folks who often find the potpourri-like herb too strong to begin with. Half a cup of the sorbet has only 100 calories and no cholesterol or fat.

The Bourbon Vanilla Bean, laced with flecks of vanilla seeds, was nicely rich. The vanilla flavor was amplified because of the bourbon, though, the corn-based whiskey, itself, was not at all in-your-face. I’d tell you the caloric count, but uh, I forgot to look before the hubby and I devoured the pint. I guess you can tell we liked it.

Find Silver Moon ice cream and sorbets at Northern California Whole Foods stores, as well as Andronico’s, Draeger’s, and Cosentino’s.

A pint is $7.99. Moreover, the ice cream containers all sport a 55-cent-off coupon (good through August), thanks to the California Milk Advisory Board’s “Real California Milk” promotion.

    Those both look good but it’s the vanilla bourbon that steals my heart (and stomach).

    Carolyn you’re totally making me drool all over the place here – both ice creams deserve a big scream!! Lavish flavors :)

    I have to try the Limoncello one, I love limoncello, just saw in a magazine a limoncello and champagne cocktail that I am going to try this weekend at home.

  4. 4

    I’ll take a giant scoop of the bourbon vanilla, please! man oh man that sounds so good! Might be time to clean out my freezer to make space for ice cream!

  5. 5

    I love any kind of ice cream with booze. I wonder if they check ID at the register? ;-)

  6. 6

    I actually love lots of lavender flavor so this one might not be enough oomph for me. The vanilla sounds divine…

  7. 7

    Hope the ice-cream won’t make me drunk, because I would be able to finish a pint or two of those in one sitting! ;-p

  8. 8

    Lavender Limoncello sounds like my kind of flavor! And what?! THe heat spell is here already?!

  9. 9

    I must admit I do love it when the alcoholic flavour is a back note as I’m not a big drinker! :D Lavender limoncello sounds divine :)

    These flavors look and sound so amazing. Perfect for the summer heat!

  14. 14

    Been wondering where to pick up some of the Silver Moon offerings. Looks like a quick trip to Cosentino’s is in store.

  15. 15

    Oh yum, I’ve the depth that booze adds to the ice cream when its not overdone. The limoncello sounds like a winner.

  16. 16

    I always find ice-cream deliveries amazing….makes me think of Amazon but…not. I like the sound of lavender and limoncello, very much!

  17. 17

    Thank you! I’m off to find pomegranate martini (or strawberry) and treat myself after a hot 3 day weekend. I hope they release the Bourbon Vanilla soon. (I didn’t see it on the Silver Moon Ice Cream site.)

    and start to count down to the dessert & port/madeira pairing hosted by Battledish and Sally’s After Dark. Can’t wait for July 13 to come around. details:
