Be the hostess with the mostest: The fabulous Brandy Ice makes its return this holiday season.

It appears that I am set to be the hostess with the mostest for the second year in a row thanks to this fancy winter cocktail I mastered last Christmas.

The Brandy Ice.

If you’ve never enjoyed one of these, you’re missing out.

This holiday cocktail made with Blue Bell vanilla ice cream quickly became a fan favorite in our house last year.

Before our lives erupt into happy chaos next week with the arrival of our kids for Christmas, we decided to make a batch for ourselves and settle in for a quiet night.

I’m not kidding when I say these things are so good, they’re dangerous.

This festive cocktail is perfect for a crowd and is once again on our Christmas Eve menu.

This is everything you need to make Brandy Ice.

Here’s the recipe to make Brandy Ice for two:

1 ½ cups vanilla ice cream (I used Blue Bell of course.)

2 tbsp brandy

2 tsp crème de cocoa

2 tsp Godiva chocolate liqueur

Let the ice cream soften for a bit. Place everything in a blender, pour into a pretty glass and sprinkle with nutmeg.

Then sit next to your Christmas tree and sip.

This next version is for a crowd. (It serves six.)

½ gallon Blue Bell vanilla ice cream

½ to 2/3 cup Brandy

1/2 cup Creme de Cacao

1/2 cup Godiva Chocolate Liqueur

To add a little fancy to these drinks, top with whipped cream or a cute cookie!
