The ice cream to match the movie

On the slider: Bette Davis, Mia Farrow and Romy Schneider all shared a passion for an ice cold sweet temptation. Movies and ice cream have always made a perfect match.

Who says that ice cream is your indulgence just for hot summer days? We want ice cream all year long and just imagine your favorite movie and a matching delicious cool ice cream cup to enjoy on a rainy night on your sofa. Why not, but watch out, this habit could become a weekend routine. 

IRMA selected her favorite cups and movies that make a perfect match.

HORROR MOVIES

I enjoy “The Shining” and any other horror movie with a delicious medley of ice cream, granola and nuts to crunch away the tension.

RECIPE: two scoops of vanilla or natural yoghurt ice cream topped with caramelized pine nuts, pistachios and chopped almonds (2 spoons of each) roasted in a pan with some Manuka honey and a pinch of salt.

COMEDY

Every romantic comedy works perfectly with lots of whipped cream and fresh fruit. Say hello to my “When Harry Met Sally ice cream cup”…

RECIPE: Make it a classic combination of one scoop each of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, topped with freshly sliced strawberries and a whole lot of vanilla flavored whipped cream.

THE CLASSICS

Classics like “Some like it hot” or “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” have to be enjoyed with warm cherries or raspberries and a spritz of cognac over vanilla or chocolate ice.

RECIPE: Two scoops of white almond ice cream topped with hot cherries (from a glass is better than a can) seasoned with a pinch of cinnamon and salt. Pour it on top of the ice cream when cooled down a little and sprinkle some sliced almonds on top.

JAMES BOND

Binge watching James Bond movies screams for a lime sorbet in martini or chilled Vodka.

RECIPE: The famous Colonel is made with two scoops of lemon or lime sorbet topped with ice cold gin or vodka. Serve it in a martini glass to be part of the game.

MAFIA MOVIES

The Godfather” or any mafia movie works best with the good old German spaghetti ice cream.

RECIPE: Press vanilla ice cream through a pasta press and top it with pureed strawberry sauce. Sprinkle with white chocolate and some cherries out of the glass.
