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.
We’ve all raised a glass to the new year and are raring to uncork new trends that are continuing to evolve. Indeed, it seems to be a promising year when it comes to innovation.
