Apple Frappé - Spirited Version
This rich and creamy spirited apple drink simply smacks of the traditional flavors of fall and winter. If desired, serve in hollowed-out "apple cups" for a festive presentation!
3 Golden Delicious apples (or any variety of your choice)
1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
3 ounces rum, brandy, hard cider (or use regular apple cider or juice for nonalcoholic version)
Vanilla ice cream, as needed
Maraschino cherries for garnish (optional)
Mint leaves for garnish (optional)
Optional Apple Cups:
4 large apples
- Wash, peel, core and cut the apples into quarters.
- Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend with enough ice cream for desired thickness.
- Pour into Apple Cups (or regular cups) and garnish with maraschino cherries and mint leaves, if desired. Serve immediately.
- For Apple Cups: Cut the tops off of apples. Hollow out the inside, leaving a 1/2 inch thick shell. Brush the inside with lemon juice to prevent browning. Fill with the frappé and serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings.
