Although summer is the most popular time of year for frozen treats, culinary enthusiasts can serve ice cream and chilled cocktails year-round for the enjoyment of friends and family. A refreshing sorbet can be a wonderful palate cleanser between meals while creamy homemade ice cream is always a crowd-pleasing desert.
The Thermador Freedom® Collection of built-in fridge freezer columns offer the most flexibility to real cooks so they can select the exact size of freezer storage they need based on their personal cooking and entertaining preferences. These refrigerator-freezer columns provide innovative technology for ultimate preservation, ensuring that ingredients stay fresh and icy treats stay cool with optimal temperature control.
Unique features like SuperFreeze ensure that ice and homemade desserts freeze quickly, and each freezer column features its own compressor and evaporator for precise temperature control and ideal humiditiy levels to ensure that items stored inside are always fresh and ready for use. The extra bright LED lighting located on the interior sidewall of the columns make it easy to locate essential ingredients and items within the appliance.
The freezers also provide great flexibility to accommodate whatever the cook needs to store in preparation for a party. An ultra capacity drawer is equipped with an adjustable ice bin for the ability to move it anywhere within the drawer, or to remove it completely to accommodate extra storage space when hosting large gatherings during the holiday season. The adjustable cantilever racks can also be positioned at any level to deliver more access and use of space for tall or bulky items.
In honor of final days of outdoor summer entertaining, we’d like to share a delicious original recipe for Creamy Coffee Liqueur Pops – a wonderful chilled accent to any soiree under the sun or stars.
Makes ten to twelve 2.5 ounce Pops
1 ¼ cups (3oo mil) half & half
¾ cup (180 ml) espresso
½ cup (120 ml) Kahlua or other coffee liqueur
½ cup (120 ml) water
1/3 cup (67 g) sugar
Soak your wooden pop sticks in a glass of warm water for at least 30 minutes. In the meantime stir together all the ingredients until the sugar completely dissolves. Divide the mixture among the ice pop molds. Insert the wooden pop sticks and freeze for four hours, or until completely solid.
These refreshing treats are delicious on their own or they can be served with supplementary dessert. Enjoy!
