You can’t top the cool vanilla and chocolate harmony of an ice cream sandwich—but you can turn it into a cocktail. This liquid take on the summertime staple blends chocolate-flavored vodka with dark rum for a stiff-but-sweet backbone, while frothy egg whites and vanilla extract lend the drink a creaminess akin to melted ice cream. Take one sip of this cocktail and you’ll recall ice cream sandwiches on a hot summer day, dribbling their sticky vanilla sweetness down your hand.
