If you’re a lush with a sweet tooth, now is a glorious time to be alive as boozy ice creams continue to grab the public’s attention. We’ve seen brands like Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream and Winecream temporarily take the spotlight for offering up wine-infused desserts that pack a five percent and ten percent ABV punch respectively. Now a New York-based brand called Tipsy Scoop is having its moment in the sun for offering up “the magic of an artisanal, hand-crafted ice cream with the mastery of a perfectly mixed cocktail.” Though hopefully that time in the sun doesn’t last too long because, you know, ice cream melts – even when its enhanced with alcohol.
Tipsy Scoop offers up plenty of year-round flavors featuring ABVs of up to five percent including things like Spiked Hazelnut Coffee, Cake Batter Vodka Martini and Mango Margarita Sorbet. But it’s beyond the basics (if you want to call boozy ice cream “basic”) where Tipsy really seems to set the bar high. The brand also offers up full-on boozy ice cream cakes (so much for dumping a bottle of vodka into your Fudgie the Whale!) and intoxicating ice cream sandwiches. Even more exciting, if you’ve got the dough, Tipsy Scoop is totally willing to customize your own pints for you – not just in the packaging department but by helping create a customized flavor as well. Sure, you mixology skills may not have even reached the rum and coke level, but maybe your forays into boozy ice cream will prove more fruitful.
One of the worst parts about ice cream with alcohol is figuring out how to get your hands on it. Again, Tipsy Scoop has your best interests in mind. The company ships nationwide in dry ice via FedEx, meaning if you’ve failed to procure the alcoholic dessert in the past, this could finally be your chance. Just remember to eat responsibly: not just for your liver, but for your waistline as well.
