2 cups vanilla bean ice cream
1 ripe peach, finely chopped
Large handful of basil leaves, finely chopped
About 10 strawberries, coarsely chopped
2 Tbls. brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 Tbls butter
1/3 cup vodka
For ice cream: Mix together ice cream, peaches, and basil and return to freezer until time to serve.
For sauce: Mix together strawberries and brown sugar and let sit for at least one hour to let juices form from the strawberries. When ready to prepare, heat butter in saucepan over medium-high heat and add walnuts. Once browned, add the strawberries and their juices and the vodka. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let cook until alcohol has been cooked out (about 4 minutes). Use sauce to top each ice cream serving.
