Whipped Cream

Chill bowl and beater. Whip 1 qt heavy cream till tracks show. Add 4 oz sifted l0x sugar. Add 1/2 oz Virginia Dare Vanilla Extract. Continue beating, add Gran Marnier slowly while beating if you are adding it. Whip to medium soft peaks. Makes the 3 qt's required.

Chocolate Version. (killer!) Use Double dark chocolate ice cream. Add 6 to 8 oz (about a cup) of Grand Marnier to the whipped cream with the vanilla slowly. Add a pint of Gran Marnier or Sabra Orange Chocolate liqueur instead of the vodka. Garnish with chocolate curls or grated dark chocolate.
