Admit it – just the name of the Pistachio Cream drink makes you want to try it, right? If you enjoy pistachio ice cream, think of this as the adult version.

Pistachio Cream drink in champagne flute

This blended drink features pistachio liqueur, not a common cocktail ingredient. The dominant flavor is pistachio, but it’s really quite like amaretto, and I would actually recommend substituting amaretto if you don’t have pistachio liqueur on hand. The brandy adds some distant fruit notes, and of course the vanilla ice cream rounds everything out and makes it rich and wonderful.


  • 1 ounce pistachio liqueur
  • 1 ounce brandy
  • 5 ounces vanilla ice-cream

Pour everything into an electric blender and blend on low for just a few seconds or until it’s creamy. Serve in a chilled champagne flute.
