Atlanta-based chain The Ice Cream Bar offers up a host of flavors. A particularly delectable-sounding one is the bourbon butter pecan, made with roasted pecans, caramel, and of course, lashings of a prized Kentucky bourbon. Each pint weighs in at an 8 percent ABV.
Tipsy Scoop Boozy Ice Cream has recently made headlines and caused quite a stir among New Yorkers. Melissa Tavvs, a professional ‘scoop sommelier’ churns out artisanal hand-crafted delights that pack in a 5 percent ABV in each scoop.

Ice Cream Wasted, an ice cream bar in Plano, Texas, takes it a notch further with its range of vegan friendly ice creams that use coconut milk and are completely free of dairy or egg. Flavors are seasonal and change every month. However, no walk-ins are accepted, and reservations for a tasting session must be made ahead of time.
Brigid Calloway of Ice Cream Wasted has held a long term fascination with liquor-infused frozen treats. Formerly a chemist in the pharmaceutical , oil and gas industry, she transferred her molecular skills into her passion and perfected the art. All this, despite naysayers who insisted she couldn’t possibly freeze alcohol. With flavors like apple pie with an apple whiskey and cinnamon liqueur, and ‘French Toasted,’ made with maple and butterscotch whiskey, Calloway is certainly on to something. and has come into her own.
Born in an upbeat pub in San Francisco, which goes by the name of Trick Dog, Pepper’s Pride is an improvisation on a traditional cocktail that came straight out of Josh Harris’s vintage cocktail book collection.

Not all cocktails need exotic elements to be enjoyed in the warm months. Some can be mixed within minutes with ingredients found easily at home. One such gem is the Highland Bramble. Its punchy, fruity, and tarty flavours allure you into a joyful ambience of a warm summer morning in the highlands or countryside.
A very popular food blogging channel has recently come up with a brilliant idea of airing shows that have everything to do with food (and drinks, obviously), but also include restaurants or bar reviews occasionally. Primarily these shows are divided into episodes and each episode has one popular chef hosting it and crafting his or her special recipes.
