  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240F on a candy thermometer.
  • Stir in butter, salt, vinegar, and 1/4 heavy cream.
  • Set aside to cool to room temperature. Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.
  • Now prepare the ice cream base: Whisk the two eggs in a separate bowl about two minutes, then add the sugar somewhat slowly.
  • Add the milk and cream and make sure everything is combined.
  • Freeze according to your ice cream maker instructions, then after about half an hour or when it is mostly solid, pour the butterbeer syrup into the mix and let it fold in.
  • After it’s pretty solid, it’s ready to eat or be stored.
