Mr. Green Tea's ice cream can be used for a whole variety of desserts, including this surprising combination. Balsamic vinegar adds a tartness to this one that we fell in love with the moment we tried it! The frozen frosted martini glass is a beautiful setting for this extremely unique and delicious dessert.

Balsamic Vinegar Reduction: 

Pour 2 cups of balsamic vinegar into a deep heavy bottomed sauce pan and heat pan to medium-high.

Whisk the mixture until it begins to boil and continue to mix. Continue whisking until the mixture thickens and reduces to half of its volume. 

Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature. 

Fire and Ice: 

Take four martini glasses and use a small basting brush to paint the inside of each glass with the cooled balsamic reduction. Place the martini glasses into the freezer for 30 minutes. 

Remove glasses from freezer and place 2 scoops of Mr. Green Tea’s Ginger ice cream into each frozen glass. Place each bicotti cookie into the ice cream.

Top each serving with a pinch of hot chili powder. Feel free to lightly drizzle any remaining balsamic reduction over the dessert.
