Frozen Summer Treats for Adults Only!

By Laura Medina

Okay, the kids are out of your hair for now.  Don't you love it or loved it when school starts back in session during the hottest days of the year, the dog days of August.

Don't you wish or wonder about treating yourself to a alcoholic sundae or a creamy, frozen treat?  Can't go to an exclusive 5-star hotel/restaurant that makes their own from scratch and their freezer is broken?

Can't make one? Don't ponder, SnoBar and BuzzBar Ice Cream and Sorbet Popsicles are here for a culinary afternoon delight or weekends.

SnoBar makes a personalized carton of liquor ice creams in chocolatey Brandy Alexander Chocolate with the whole cocktail mixed in.

If chocolate mint is your thing, SnoBar's Grasshopper is chocolate mint in mint green ice cream.

If you prefer licking your frozen cocktails on a stick, rather than sipping or slurping them, SnoBar's popsicles come in not-too-sweet Margarita, Mojito, and Cosmopolitan.  The alcohol content cuts down on the sugar, making them less "kiddy."

If you still yearn for your childhood treat of ice cream bar on a stick but with a little more oomph, BuzzBar Ice Cream mixed in childhood favorites with adult liquor like Cookies n' Cookies Ice Cream with Bourbon or Coffee Ice Cream with Irish Cream or here's a real treat, Strawberry Ice Cream and Rum, speaking of which...

Ever wished for an "adult smoothie," something packed with much-needed adult antioxidants but with a little "kick" or a sparkle?

Can't figure the right amount of rum and champagne to mix in?

Don't worry, Malibu Rum has release their new Malibu Rum Sparklers just in time for Spring's and Summer's bumper crops of fruit, specifically berries. 

What to do with all these berries?

Easy, follow this Frozen Strawberry Beach recipe using fresh strawberries.  Better yet, you can use any ripe berries, such as in-season blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.  Shoot, you can combine all four berries in one drink!

While the kids are sweltering away in wool Fall clothes at school, you can afford to kick back with  well-deserved treats.
