A HOTEL in Scotland is preparing to celebrate National Ice Cream day by creating an unusual flavour of the frozen desert.

Apex Hotels has teamed up with farmhouse dairy Glen Urr to bring to its customers a slab of lorne sausage ice cream served on a brioche bun with a drizzle of sauce.

The reinvented breakfast favourite will be served up at Apex Grassmarket in Edinburgh for one day only – National Ice Cream Day on July 15.

Chef Vladimirs Kruus said: “I have to say I’ve never worked with such an unusual ice cream.

“We decided to serve it on a brioche buns as the bread is slightly sweet, and this will be toasted and dusted with icing sugar.

“We have also whipped up a toffee drizzle that’s similar in colour to brown sauce, so it really is a sweet equivalent of a classic roll and square sausage.

“There’s no mistaking the distinctive taste of lorne sausage so this is definitely one for the adventurous.”
