Gin And Tonic Ice Cream Is HERE

While the United States is going through a health crisis due to the listeria outbreak in the past few weeks (which has mostly kept longtime ice cream makers Blue Bell in the country’s headlines), the United Kingdom sets itself up for the summer … with gin and tonic ice cream!

Besides the classic flavor of rum-raisins, a new desserts trend has seen the rise of other alcohol-related flavors besides the gin and tonic ice cream, including Starbucks’ stout-flavored coffee from last year (as they worked with iconic brand Guinness) Ben & Jerry’s highly controversial joint product with Colorado brewery New Belgium.

According to The Mirror, the new gin and tonic ice cream is a joint effort between award-winning (and 200 year-old) London gin distillery Sipsmith and ice cream makers Jude’s in Hampshire, UK, as they worked to find an ice cream that tasted exactly like the fresh cocktail.
