What is London fog ice cream?

London fog ice cream is flavored like London fog lattes – milk with Earl grey tea and lavender.

What does it taste like?

Earl grey tea is black tea infused with Bergamot oranges; it’s a really strong tea, from the roast-y dark bitterness of the tea to the citrusy oranges. Lavender can also be a pretty overpowering flavor, so the combination works well in a creamy and mellow ice cream base.

The cooked custard might taste a little perfume-y, but once it’s churned and frozen, the flavor will settle. While there is a little alcohol in this ice cream, you can’t taste it, and it’s more for texture than flavor.

How to Make London Fog Ice Cream

This recipe is very similar to the Yakult ice cream and hojicha ice cream recipes I have. The base is the same, and the only things I tweaked were the flavorings and the amount of alcohol.

It starts by making a custard on the stove, and infusing it with dried lavender and Earl grey tea leaves.

If you’ve never cooked custard over direct heat, this can be a little nerve wracking. You don’t want to curdle it and make scrambled egg ice cream, while also trying to avoid serving uncooked eggs to your grandma.

I’d recommend using low heat and scraping the bottom and the sides of the pot frequently (or even constantly, if that will help ease your mind). You’ll know the custard is done cooking when it coats the back of your spatula, and when you drag a finger across the spatula, it leaves a trail and doesn’t try to fill in the trail immediately.

A tablespoon (aka a shot in a different context) of alcohol gets mixed in. I used gin here, but vodka or Grand Marnier sound good, too, from off the top of my head.

The ice cream base needs to chill before spending time in an ice cream machine, which whips air into the ice cream. Churning (along with some alcohol, which has a very high freezing point) makes sure that the ice cream doesn’t freeze into a solid, icy block and that it’s creamy and tasty.

Yes, that alcohol freezing point fact is one of the few pieces of information I retained from two years of intensive high school chemistry classes and a quarter of a food science class in college.

Anyways, the ice cream is really soft post-churning, so unless you’re a fan of almost soupy ice cream or soft serve, you need to freeze it for a few more hours (or overnight) before you can eat it.

How to Serve

You could eat this London fog ice cream plain, and that’s fine. Or you could go big (not sure about you, but I need all the dopamine I can get during this never-ending pandemic).

I was in a mood for ice cream sandwiches when I shot these pictures, so I ended up using crunchy lemon cookies. Matcha (especially because I love the earl grey and matcha flavor combo together) or coffee (when I can’t decide if I want iced coffee or milk tea, yuenyeung is always the move) cookies could also be good.

A float of some sort, with matcha or earl grey or coffee would be delicious, and a fun way to combine your after dinner sipping with your dessert.

I haven’t tried it with this ice cream, but orange flavored Smirnoff Ice ice cream floats are one of my nostalgic favorites. Using seltzer with a glug of Grand Marnier instead of the bright orange packaged alcoholic soda sounds like a classier, less sweet version.
