I hope you’ll begrudge me at least one more homemade ice cream recipe this summer— this one made with huckleberries fresh from the mountains of Idaho.

We’re just back from a week spent at my family cabin in McCall, a small lakeside town north of Boise. It’s a longstanding summer tradition I look forward to all year long. We swam, built sandcastles, lounged in the sun, roasted marshmallows, enjoyed sunsets over the lake, and played card games long into the night.

I took a whole week off from the internet and my blogging life, ignoring email, twitter and the like. It was fabulous. But now I’m back! And refreshed and excited to share a recipe I created in our tiny and primitive cabin kitchen.

Rich and dark chocolate ice cream studded with mini marshmallows and toasted hazelnuts is a perfect indulgence to help beat the heat.

I never cared much for rocky road ice cream as a kid. I think it was the nuts.

Fast forward 20 years to last week when I realized I still hadn’t given rocky road the second chance it deserves. 20 years without the combination of chocolate ice cream, marshmallows and nuts? I must be nuts. And so I made batch of rocky road ice cream.

Just try and say no to this— cherry cola (made with homemade cherry syrup) spiked with bourbon and layered into a tall glass alongside vanilla ice cream, with whipped cream and a cherry on top.

Bourbon Cherry-Cola Floats from completelydelicious.com

We’re currently experiencing some technical difficulties with our swamp cooler. Now that July is in full swing, temps are above 90 pretty consistently now and our house is quickly turning from uncomfortable to unbearable. My handy husband is working on getting it fixed, but in the meantime I’m getting a little cranky.

You know what’s a good cure for crankiness? Bourbon. And what’s a great way to beat the heat? Why, with an ice cream float, of course! Putting the two together— brilliant.
