I am adding this to my cookbook for safekeeping. I have not tried it yet, but will be trying it for an upcoming party. This recipe was originally adapted from Louisiana Real and Rustic Cookbook, by Emeril Lagasse, with Mercelle Bienvenu.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 14 cups brandy
  • 1 14 cups Bourbon
  • 1 14 cups dark rum
  • 3 quarts half-and-half
  • 4 tablespoons pure mexican vanilla
  • 34-1 cup simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, simmered until sugar disolves and cools)
  • fresh grated nutmeg


  1. In a plastic gallon container, with a lid, combine the brandy, bourbon, rum and half and half, and vanilla. Sweeten the cream mixture to taste with the simple syrup. Cover and freeze until slightly frozen. To serve, using an ice pick, (carefully) slush the mixture. Spoon into balloon wine glasses and garnish with nutmeg.
