the twitterer serves adult dessert: Beer ice cream!

I still favour chocolate, but for those who don't care for cocoa (and for the beer-a-holics in your house) this is heaven on earth!

Prep time: 20 minutes, plus up to 60 minutes for freezing

You'll need an ice cream making machine.

Serves: 2 to 4

4 egg yolks

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup beer

1 cup heavy cream

1. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until they are pale and lemony coloured. Bring the beer and the cream to a simmer in a heavy-bottom saucepan, then slowly pour over the sugar mixture, whisking constantly. Return the mixture to the pan and cook over low heat, whisking frequently, until it thickens.

2. Pour through a strainer into a mixing bowl set over ice and whisk until cool. Freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions.
