Ice cream cocktails -- a Wisconsin favorite

I typically don't go for blender drinks, but make an exception when I'm in Wisconsin, where the after-dinner libation known as the ice cream cocktail is a cherished tradition among patrons of the Dairy State's old-timey supper clubs.


Most are amped-up versions of cream-based cocktails — the minty grasshopper (left) and the Golden Cadillac (center), tasting of anise from a dose of Galliano.


Others, like the almond-flavored Pink Squirrel (right), are Wisconsin originals.


A magnificent concoction of vanilla ice cream, crème liqueur, and often brandy or another spirit, the ice cream cocktail is certainly more dessert than digestif.


But in uniting two postprandial pleasures — one childlike, the other grown-up — in a single glass, it hits an enduring sweet spot.
