Jeni's Mojito Sundae Recipe

Jeni's Mojito Sundae Recipe

Jeni Britton Bauer's easy instructions

Do you like fun? Enjoy smiling? Take pleasure in things that are universally wonderful? (And have the ability to digest lactose?)

If so, watch as we make boozy ice cream creations — a mojito sundae (above) and a Manhattan float — with Jeni Britton Bauer, the deity behind Columbus, Ohio-based gourmet pint-maker Jeni’s. (If you don’t know Jeni’s, you don’t know jack.)

Aside from the fact they involve dessert, we’re excited about today’s videos because Bauer’s cookbook, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home, won a James Beard Foundation Award a few weeks ago. So you know the recipes are going to be good.

Plus, both require only a few easy-to-find ingredients and minimal kitchen know-how. And they’re ideal for Memorial Day barbecues.

That is, if you value success.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home is available at amazon.com, $13. For more information or to order pints, go to jenis.com. To keep cooking, check out our video recipes for a stove-top burger with Daniel Boulud, ginger cookies with Michael Chernow, and breakfast tacos with Elizabeth Karmel.
