What is a frozen cocktail?

It’s an alcoholic drink that’s been frozen before serving. They tend to be more of a slushy consistency, so need to be stirred and broken up regularly.

What can I use in place of the Frangelico liqueur?

Amaretto is an almond flavor rather than hazelnut, but it would still work here as a substitution. Hazelnut extract or hazelnut syrup could be used to add the flavor, without the liqueur.

What brands of bourbon and rum should I use?

You can use any brand you prefer! I recommend using something of decent quality (i.e. that you like the taste of), but not your most prized bottle.

What other ice cream flavors can I use?

Chocolate ice cream is best to give you a true french silk pie flavor in this cocktail. But you use another flavor and this would still taste great. Classic vanilla works well, or try a hazelnut ice cream or coffee flavored ice cream!

Tips!

  • You want the ice cream to be cold, but soft enough to mix. I recommend letting it sit out for about 15 minutes, rather than microwaving.
  • Use a large, freezer-safe container to freeze this cocktail. You can pour it into multiple containers if you need to.
  • The frozen cocktail will taste super creamy, but will be on the slushy side when you take it out of the freezer.
  • These can be kept in the freezer as long as needed, but they will be best if served within 2 days.

How can I make this without alcohol?

This frozen cocktail recipe can definitely be turned into a non-alcoholic drink if you prefer.

To do this: leave out the rum and bourbon, then replace the Frangelico with a hazelnut syrup. You might need to add a bit more milk to get the right consistency. Just add a little more at a time as you mix. It’ll be more like a french silk pie milkshake that everyone can enjoy!

Can I make these cocktails with dairy free ice cream and milk?

Absolutely! You can make a dairy-free version and it will still be just as delicious. Coconut-based ice creams and milks make a nice replacement, but you can use any substitute you prefer.

How can I make the pie crust cookies?

The pie crust cookies are optional, but they’re really easy to make! Plus they look really cute with this frozen french silk pie cocktail, and finish off the drink really nicely.

To make: 

Use a store-bought, pre-baked pie crust, and cut out any shape with a cookie cutter. The heart shape looks nice, and would be perfect if serving this for a Valentine’s Day treat. But you can use any cookie shape you want.

You can use them solely as garnish, or you can add a cinnamon sugar coating and bake them in the oven!
