Cherries are in full season here – red, pink, white, dark red, all sorts of colors are available. My favorites are the Amarena cherries, dark and slightly bitter, with plenty of flesh and juice, the kind of cherries that stain your fingertips and clothes… stains that bring many childhood memories back, the kind of stains that I don’t mind anymore. I loved climbing trees to pick these up when I was a kid and the taste of freshly made cherry jam is something that I will never forget.
This super creamy and rich Vanilla Rose Ice Cream has multiple layers of flavors. It starts off with the essence of the rose water, and finishes with a hint of delicious vanilla. The toasted pistachios add texture and a wonderful contrast.
Pair the ice cream with a St-Germain Cocktail, which is also made from flowers.
