Reviews for Slushed

“…I’m happy to have this book on hand for a summer full of boozy popsicles (frozen watermelon gimlets, anyone?), fancy palate cleansers (limoncello and mint sorbet), and cool tipsy desserts (dirty banana frozen yogurt, amaretto ice cream sandwiches, drunken sailor ice cream with spiced rum and candied orange peel). Be warned, you will need some tools—an ice cream maker, mixer, and blender as well as a candy thermometer and well-stocked pantry and bar. But the effort will be worth it once you’re sitting on the porch on a hot night, a cool Frozen Long Island Ice Tea at the ready.”

“Compared to the other alcohol-related book I reviewed this month, this one wins hands down!”

—Sips & Shots, Jennifer Walker, May 21, 2012

“Booze meets dessert in Slushed! by Jessie Cross. Frozen treats to be specific are the desserts in question here, as the entire book is essentially a guide to liquoring up your favorite frozen desserts…You’ll need an ice cream maker and a blender or a food processor for many of the recipes but for the most part they come together quickly and easily. Recipes like Roasted Pear Gelato with Eau de Vie and Kirch Infused Slippery Cherry Sherbet had me craving a scoop right off the bat.”

Reader reviews

“Really fun recipes. I’ve tried ice cream, frozen yogurt, and gelato recipes and loved them all (well, not the yogurt but my dinner guests loved it — I just don’t like yogurt). The recipes are clear and easy to follow. The small amounts of liquor pack quite a punch. The Brown Sugar Bourbon ice cream recipe is worth the price of the book by itself. Amazing. I can’t wait to try more.”

“So glad this awesome culinary artist decided to show us adult beverages too!”

“This book is wonderful. The time of year has come to use it although it didn’t really matter to me that the first treat I tried was on a not so cold day. It’s a must have for summer parties. Your shelf shouldn’t be without this book.”

—Kimberly A., May 22, 2012

“Jessie really went through the time and effort to not only create wonderfully-delicious boozified treats, but to share them in a way that is crystal clear for even the most basic beginner in the kitchen. Her breakdown of techniques, equipment, and various ingredients was extremely helpful for me as I am new to the world of frozen treat making. I also loved the fact that she included homemade recipes for ingredients or toppings that taste a million times better than the plain run-of-the-mill storebought items. This book will definitely be my key to cooling off this summer!”

“I bought this for my library collection and tried the raspberry truffle ice cream. Its actually one of the most intense raspberry flavored ice creams I have ever had. I am now buying the book for my personal collection.”

“This is a great little recipe book, with a nice variety of delectable frozen treats to choose from. Easy to understand.”
—Christine T., December 29, 2012
This book is full of really creative ideas for making frozen deserts with just enough alcohol to taste but not enough to affect your sobriety. The recipes are easy to follow, the pictures are really nice, and there is enough variety in here for even the most particular taste. It’s a great book full of great ideas that most importantly turn out fabulous treats and is really helping me to make the most of my ice cream maker! Highly recommend.

“I wish there were more books like Slushed around. It’s so much fun to read and there are so many recipes that I doubt I’ll ever get tired of it. I don’t think I’ll ever be tired of mixed drinks again. Professional chefs or people in the food or bar industries will really have a field day with this book.”
—Mr. B., August 16, 2012
“If you own an ice cream maker and an ice pop mold, you need to buy this cookbook. If you don’t own an ice cream maker and an ice pop mold, you need to buy both of them, and you need to buy this cookbook. It is chock full of delicious, fun treats for adults only that would be sure to impress at a party. Or, if you’re like me, you’ll just hoard them all at home and eat them yourself. Either way, you’ll be happy.”
