Servings: Makes about 1 1/2 quarts
The idea for this creation came from the popular beverage that combines coffee, Irish whiskey, and cream.

1 cup sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
4 cups half-and-half or light cream
3 beaten eggs
1/4 cup instant coffee crystals
1/4 cup Irish whiskey

In a large saucepan combine sugar and gelatin. Stir in half-and-half or light cream. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture almost boils and sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Stir about 1 cup of the hot mixture into beaten eggs; return all to saucepan. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Do not boil. Stir in instant coffee crystals and whiskey. Cool. Transfer the mixture to a 4-quart ice-cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.

Or, transfer the mixture to a 9x9x2-inch baking pan. Cover and freeze 2 to 3 hours or until almost firm. Break frozen mixture into chunks. Transfer to a chilled bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth but not melted. Return to pan. Cover; freeze until firm.

Makes about 1-1/2 quarts (12 to 16 servings).

Make-Ahead Tip: Place ice cream in freezer container; seal, label, and freeze up to 1 week.
