By | Published , Last Updated: November 22, 2013 | Cocktails | No Comment

Call me old-fashioned, but I still serve cherries jubilee at dinner parties. So it seemed a natural to turn this delicious desert into a party drink. It’s best made with fresh sweet cherries, but frozen will do in a pinch.

INGREDIENTS:
12 large, sweet cherries, pitted
1 cup Ice
½ cup vanilla ice cream
1 ounce brandy
1 ½ ounces cherry liqueur

METHOD:
1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
2. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly.
3. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.

Variations

Cherry Pie Jubilation Add 3 crumbled graham crackers before blending.
Chocolate Cherries Jubilation Omit the vanilla ice cream. Add ½ cup chocolate ice cream before blending.
Grand Cherries Jubilation Omit the brandy. Add 1 ounce Grand Marnier before blending.
Nutty Cherry Jubilation Add ½ ounce almond liqueur (such as crème de noya or amaretto) before blending.
Spiced Cherries Jubilation Add ½ ounce ginger liqueur (such as the Original Canton) before blending.
