Ice cream is for adults, too, and can be far more interesting than vanilla. Try these flavors from Japan (Green Tea Ice Cream), China (Passion Fruit-Litchi Sorbet) and Chile (Ancho-Chocolate Ice Cream.)

Ingredients

1 cup water
1⁄4 cup sugar
2 cups passion fruit juice
2 tbsp. rum
1⁄2 cup diced, canned litchi nuts
1 pt. chocolate ice cream
1 pt. green tea ice cream
Crushed, dried ancho chiles
12 waffle cones

Steps

1. For passion fruit-litchi sorbet: Stir water and sugar in a saucepan over moderate heat until sugar dissolves; bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cool. Stir in passion fruit juice; chill until cold. Stir in rum.

2. Freeze mixture in an ice cream machine according to directions until slushy. Add litchi nuts and continue to freeze in machine until mixture is firm. Transfer sorbet to a container and freeze until service.

3. For ancho-chocolate ice cream: Mix 1⁄4 tsp. crushed ancho chiles into softened chocolate ice cream. Freeze until firm.

4. Per order, portion generous scoops of passion fruit sorbet, ancho chocolate, and green tea ice cream into waffle cones.
