Fresh Mint Vodka Ice Cream with Choc Chunks

A few years ago, 2 years to be exact, I tried this ice cream and we found it to be nice but it didn't wow us enough for a repeat performance. It was put on the back burner.

Because my mint plants were going crazy, I thought I will give this ice cream another go. Much more mint leaves were used and left to infuse with the milk overnight. This gave it more punch. Love the flavour and aroma from the mint and vanilla beans. Definite wow factor !
