Boozy Frozen Cheesecake

So I am not a cheesecake person, but THIS! This is just a really good dessert. It has everything you want in an indulgent summer treat. Im gonna be honest here, I will make this differently when I make it again – I think fresh blueberry compote would be PERFECT on top instead of a frozen layer of those as well. However, my husband wanted to have just a bite and when I turned around the whole piece was gone, so just know… it is dangerously good.

Pro tips:

  • Make this not boozy by replacing all of the rumchata with heavy cream
  • Really…. be gentle with the layering because its not completely frozen after an hour and the layers can fall into each other, still delicious but less pretty.
  • Use any berries for this recipe, and switch up the layers if you want to do a berry compote on top or something other than a 3rd frozen layer.
  • LOTS OF OPTIONS! It makes this a very fun and DELICIOUS recipe.
  • Last pro tip…. really, you gotta wait until its frozen all the way because we couldn’t wait to dig in after tasting the layers as I made it and we cut into it too soon. (no regrets… its so damn good)

  7. Combine all of the ingredients for the blueberry layer aaaaaand gently… gently (because my first one ended up mixing with other layers because they are not completely frozen yet) gently pour the top layer over the cheesecake and freeze for as many hours as you got, minimum of 6 hours or overnight.
