We're always on the lookout for new or interesting ways to cut loose a little bit. Rosé-spiked gummy bears? We're there. Boozy lemonade? Sign us up. Frozen beer-soaked watermelon? Eh...not 100 percent on that, but sure, we’ll try it once.
So when we heard there was a vodka-laced ice cream on the market, and that it came in flavors like key lime pie, and cookies and cream, we knew we had to dig deeper. And here's the scoop. (See what we just did there?)
According to Delish, the business is based in Baltimore and offers a series of six different boozy ice cream treats that range from 8.6 percent to 8.9 percent alcohol. (Which, according to our calculations, is pretty freaking high for an ice cream cup.)
The flavors span a pretty delicious range: key lime pie (8.6 percent), raspberry (8.7 percent), vanilla (8.7 percent), cookies and cream (8.7 percent), chocolate (8.7 percent), and coconut (8.9 percent).
So how’d they pull of this miracle marriage of distilled spirits and hand-churned frozen treat? According to the brand's website, years of experimentation, several different recipes, and numerous (but probably pleasant, we'd guess?) tastings. Now Arctic Buzz says they “work closely with a local distillery to create artisan flavors that are formulated solely for our product.” Sold and sold.
So where can you get it? Unfortunately at the moment it appears to only be available in and around Maryland, but if it picks up enough popularity, these frozen treats seem likely to cross borders.
Assuming the brand can create a strong enough buzz, that is. (Zing!)
