Live Deliciously with Qream With a Q

While most will be toasting in the New Year with champagne, I’m going against the standard and going for something a bit creamier. Something a bit more…..delicious and indulgent. That something is the milky smooth Qream with a Q, a delectably creamy liqueur developed in collaboration with Diageo and Grammy Award-winning musician, cultural ambassador and style visionary, Pharrell Williams.

The vision behind Qream is for women to “live deliciously” and always treat themselves like Queens – which is exactly what I plan to do. According to press information, every detail of Qream was crafted to celebrate women – from the elegant design of the bottle, inspired by royalty, to the delicious flavor and silky lightness of the liquid. “Qream was created for contemporary women who work hard and want to relax with friends at the end of the day,” says Williams. “I want them to reward themselves “deliciously.” Williams added, “Women make up half the population and Qream is about celebrating that power.” Qream currently comes in two varieties, Strawberry Crème and Peach Crème. Both evoke the flavor of freshly picked strawberries and ripe vine peaches, combined with natural cream and vanilla bean essences to create  light, silky, fruity flavors.

The peach flavor is frosty soft in appearance with a flavor of lightly decadent burst of fresh ripe peaches. The initial taste is delicately creamy, with peachy sweet top-notes balanced by exotic tropical fruit nectar, a silky cream texture and the brightness of premium vodka spirit, resulting in a clean, sublimely juicy cream finish.

The strawberry is rosy pink, opalescent in appearance with a lightly decadent flavor mélange of sweet berries that reminds you of melted strawberry ice cream on a hot day. The initial taste is of ripe, sweet strawberry and fresh cream, followed by light tropical notes, a silky texture and a touch of warmth from the premium vodka, resulting in a clean full bodied finish, with a whisper of vanilla.

Of course deciding what Qream cocktail to ring in the new year with is a tough one, there are so many delicious recipe options
