Recipe For Champagne Ice Cream

I wanted to make a special ice cream to serve with a plum tart tatin I was making for a dinner party. Tart tatin is my go to dessert and ice cream is one of the easiest treats for me to make. This champagne ice cream seemed like the perfect one. I was given a bottle of champagne from Leopard’s Leap and decided to use this for my champagne ice cream. I was telling a friend of mine who is from France about the ice cream and she suggested I use vanilla as the spice for the ice cream. I had some vanilla powder at home, and used this and not vanilla bean for the champagne ice cream. I am sure a vanilla beans would work just as well, and even some cardamom might add an interesting dimension to this champagne ice cream. I will let you experiment!
