A little sour, a bit of sweet and whole lot of refreshing.
Wash the raspberries and place them in a medium sauce pan. Zest and squeeze the lemons into the sauce pan. Add the sugar and lemonade.
Place the sauce pan on medium high heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer for about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and strain over a large bowl. Cover the bowl and let chill until completely cooled. I would recommend doing this overnight to be sure.
Once fully cooled, add the vodka and pour into the ice cream maker. Let churn for 10 minutes. Scoop into a container, cover and place in the freezer until hardened. Serve!
Makes about 4 cups. Enjoy!
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, you can freeze the liquid after you add the vodka and scrape it with a fork after an hour and every half hour after that until it has the texture of a granita/snow cone. I haven’t tried this method but I think it would work.
The vodka is optional but helps with the texture. If you are planning on serving this to kids, don’t add the vodka … obviously.
The ‘pots’ for pots de crème au chocolat are not a requirement for making this dark chocolate cream. The dessert may very well be made in ramekins and it will taste every bit as good.
In taste and texture the baked cream resembles a dark chocolate truffle which is why a small ‘pot’ goes a long way. However the special charm of the dessert is in the tubby little lidded ceramic ‘pots’ in which it traditionally is baked.
I chose to use semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate, so that the chocolate flavor would really punch through. This provided the perfect balance of chocolate to make the whole frosting completely “milk chocolate” in flavor.
