Proudly South African Peppermint Don Pedro

Serves 2

Hands-on time: 15 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS

4 tbsp tinned caramel 

2½ cups (5 large scoops) vanilla ice cream 

½ cup cream 

2 shots (60ml) Klipdrift Premium Brandy 

½ slab (25g) peppermint chocolate

2 mini coconut biscuits

 

Serving suggestion:

Mint sprigs

 

METHOD

  1. To prepare the two cocktail glasses, melt 2 tablespoon of caramel in the microwave for 30 seconds and carefully drizzle it down the insides of the glasses. Refrigerate the glasses until needed.

  2. In a blender, add the vanilla ice cream, cream and Klipdrift Premium Brandy along with the remaining 2 tablespoons of caramel. Blend until smooth and creamy and a thick milkshake consistency is achieved. *Chef’s Tip: Milk can be used as a substitute for cream.

  3. Divide the Don Pedro mixture between the 2 prepared cocktail glasses. *Chef’s Tip: Pour carefully so the caramel along the sides of the glasses doesn’t smudge.

  4. Crush and divide the peppermint chocolate over each Don Pedro and finish each off with a mini coconut biscuit. 

  5. Garnish each Don Pedro with a fresh mint sprig. Serve immediately and ENJOY!
