Delicious Alcohol infused whipped cream!

Who doesn’t love a generous dollop of whipped cream on a slice of pie, or on top a bowl of ice cream?

While I still love the novelty of the canned variety, there’s something special about homemade whipped cream. The texture is still fluffy, but somehow denser, and the flavor is richer and creamier. And the best part? You can customize the flavorings to give your whipped cream a little extra zing.

What goes into the Alcohol Infused Whipped Cream?

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream. You have the have the full fat, heavy cream for this recipe,
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract.
  • 1/2 tsp dark spiced rum, such as Kraken.
  • 1 tbsp honey. There is no sugar in this recipe, as the honey provides the perfect amount of sweetness.

Whipping the cream

With a hand mixer or stand mixer set to high, beat heavy cream for 1-2 minutes, or until it begins to thicken.4. Once cream begins to thicken, with mixer still running, slowly incorporate honey, rum, and vanilla, and continue to beat, 1-2 minutes, until soft peaks form.

Can I omit the rum?

Yes! If you want a non-alcoholic version, simply leave the rum out and proceed with the recipe instructions.

What to serve with the whipped cream

I love this whipped cream with fruit, cupcakes, and my personal fave- Pecan Pumpkin Pie.

The Pecan Pumpkin Pie is super custardy and flavorful, with a candied pecan topping and flakey butter crust. To compliment that flavor, I thought a whipped cream flavored with honey instead of sugar would be perfect. The honey flavor is still sweet without being overbearing, and combined with the rum and vanilla it is the perfect compliment to my pie.

This whipped cream would also be a great topping for a sundae with candied nuts, any fruit crumble or cobbler, or even classic apple pie. It begs to be paired with fruity/nutty flavor combos.

Soft peaks or stiff peaks

When whipping, you’ll be going for a soft peak, where to cream just stands up on the tines of your mixer.
