Ready to move beyond basic vanilla or chocolate this ice cream season?

Much as we love those classics, with so many crazy -- and crazy delicious -- flavor combinations flooding the freezer aisle of the supermarket, it's hard to resist making some big, boldly flavored frozen concoctions of our own. We started with a bee sting parfait, inspired by the honey, almond and coconut-studded pastry of the same name.

For a cool and so-very-adult frappé, we combine strawberry ice cream with elderflower liqueur. And to cool off a crowd, we layer on the flavor with a salted caramel malted mocha ice cream cake.
