How to Make a Fruity Ice Cream While using Short's Soft Parade

I wanted to try something more fruity than chocolaty for this batch of ice cream. The delectable Soft Parade fruit-infused rye ale from Short's Brewing in Bellaire seemed like a good starting point. I also added some peach syrup from Torani (the stuff they use at coffee shops) to add flavor and chopped up some gummy peach rings to put in the ice cream. The result was pretty good. Not an A+ but a solid effort. I would perhaps add more syrup the next time. 
Same basic ice cream recipe for this one, just with a couple tweaks.


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 The Soft Parade rye ale
  • 2 Tablespoons Torani peach syrup
  • 1 cup chopped gummy peach rings

Whisk together all ingredients except the vanilla and Soft Parade in a medium sauce pan over medium heat for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and strain int a large bowl, adding in the Soft Parade and vanilla.

Set bowl in freezer or very cold refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove and pour in stand mixer (ours is a Kenmore, but all KitchenAid attachments fit it). Set at a medium speed and mix for 30 minutes then pour into a freezer-safe container and stir in the peach rings. Let freeze overnight or even up to 24 hours. Enjoy!
