5 Minute Jack Daniel's Ice Cream

You can make it with or without the Jack, but either way, this will be a ridiculously tasty treat!

  • ½ cup milk of choice (anywhere from heavy cream for a super creamy ice cream or skim milk for a thinner, less creamy ice cream)
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • ½ tbs vanilla
  • 1 tbs Jack Daniels or flavor of choice (optional)
  • Several cups of ice, depending on bag or container used
  • 6 tbs rock salt or coarse salt


Pour your milk, sugar, vanilla, and Jack Daniels if you choose into a zip top bag, sandwich size or quart size, seal, and shake all the ingredients together. In either a gallon sized zip bag or large bucket with a lid, fill about half way with ice and add salt. Mix the ice with the salt, then drop the closed bag of your milk mixture into the larger bag and seal it. Here is the fun part! Shake your container for about 5 minutes. If you are using the bucket, about halfway through reach in and press the ice cream to make sure no crystals of ice are forming, a problem you shouldn’t have if you use the gallon bag. You will notice when you have ice cream! If it is too thin, just shake for another minute. When you are done, you can stick it in the freezer, but only for a few hours or it will solidify. If you are making it ahead for company, you will want to put it in the freezer, and then rotate it to the back of the refrigerator, where it will last longer than you think!
Enjoy your ice cream responsibly!!!
