Chop a cup of strawberries and set aside. In a blender, add 4 cups of strawberries, 3/4 cup of sugar, juice of 1/2 lemon, a sprinkle of salt, a dash of vanilla and puree. Stir in 2 cups heavy cream. Pour into ice cream freezer and when half frozen, add the cup of chopped strawberries.
So where's the ice cream? Unfortunately, the family ate it before I had a chance to take a photo in decent light. So for your viewing pleasure, I made and snapped a photo of my drink of the week. I'm reading a book for my book group that is sheer drivel and I'm absolutely embarrassed to be seen reading it. I may have lost 10 IQ points in the process. The only redeeming factor is that it's inspired me to make drinks "with a paper thin slice of lemon floating in it" just like the main character always drinks (while summering in Nantucket). Now if this lemon-mint gin and tonic doesn't make you thirsty, you got your AC cranked up too high.
