Alcohol and ice cream are two of life's greatest treasures, and now a New York City-based ice cream shop has combined the two and all is well with the world.
It's called Tipsy Scoop, and you can sample flavors like Strawberry Sangria Sorbet, Red Velvet Martini, or Mango Margarita. YUM. The offerings found at the parlor contain about the same amount of alcohol as a light beer. This means you have to be over 21 to enjoy a scoop, though the store does serve virgin choices. While you're there, try a booze-infused ice cream sandwich, or sample a flight of the various alcoholic ice creams.
Could there be a more perfect dessert choice during hot summer weather? We think not!
