SnöBar, run by Shannon Masjedi, is another such haven of frozen cocktails. Masjedi first started experimenting with the concept when the idea took root one night, while mixing regular drinks. With a range of ice-pops like Cosmopolitan, Mojito and Margarita-- perfect for a lazy summer afternoon, one is spoilt for choice as well. Each ice-pop contains the full alcohol volume of a cocktail, and the Cosmopolitan is made with premium tequila, lime and triple sec. Among the line of ice creams, one can choose from Brandy Alexander Chocolate Chip, Grasshopper, and Pink Squirrel. Masjedi says demand for her products have been overwhelming over the recent months.
Prohibition Creamery, an Austin-based store also combines fresh local ingredients and premium-quality liquor to create pints of creamy decadence. Think brandied cherries swirled in whiskey chocolate and tiramisu. Flavors available here too are seasonal and change often, and include classics like Mezcal Vanilla, Signature Bourbon, Whiskey Chocolate and Sangria Sorbet.
Daddy O’Brien’s Irish Ice Cream Pub, an Atlanta-based store, offers another line of alcoholic ice cream for adults. With catering services for parties and flavors like Butter Beer (Harry Potter fans, rejoice), Kentucky Bourbon Salted Caramel, Egg Nog, White, Turtle, Cookie Butter Pecan and more, this joint is a dream come true for boozy ice cream aficionados. Daddy O’s also added soups and sandwiches to their menu for anyone looking to do an entire meal at the shop.
Woefully enough, these lines of ice creams are yet to penetrate markets across the world other than the United States. We can hardly wait till this happens.
There’s nothing more sophisticated than sipping on a glass of a classic Brown Derby cocktail. Invented at the Vendôme bar in Hollywood in 1930, this smooth blend was named after the iconic chain of restaurants in 20th century Los Angeles. These were widely popular back in the day, and stood out for their distinctive ‘derby hat’ shape.
There was Trouble in Paradise when Herbert Marshall and Miriam Hopkins were seen romancing each other in the 1930s romcom. Mischief-makers Gaston Monescu and Lily, the respective male and female leads, were cons masquerading as members of royal families.
Everyone has a wild streak that they welcome a chance to channel every once in a while. If you are looking for a party tipple that is delicious and easy to make, look no further.
