Calling all tequila lovers and ice cream fans! Do you love tequila? Do you love ice cream? While we have plenty of tequila cocktails and cocktail recipe ideas to share with you for National Tequila Day, with this post, we will be telling you how you can get your hands on some free tequila ice cream….yes we said free tequila ice cream. We hope you’re ready to enjoy some Patron tequila ice cream to be exact! As fans of this cool boozy treat, we are sharing this as an alternative way to enjoy and honor the distilled alcohol made from the blue agave plant. So if you’re ready for free, delicious fun on National Tequila Day, keep reading on.

What do you call it when an ice cream parlour sells nothing but boozy ice cream? A “Barlour” of course! And that’s where we’re directing you to for a scoop of Patron tequila ice cream. In honor of National Tequila Day, Tipsy Scoop Ice Cream Barlour is offering one time only complimentary scoop of its Tequila Mexican “Hot” Chocolate ice cream (the decadent cup of deliciousness you see above and below), infused with Patrón Incendio, to the first 200 customers.

On Monday, July 24th, also known as National Tequila Day, from 4pm – 8pm, if you’re one of the first 200, aged 21 and over (these are all alcoholic ice creams after all, which contains up to 5% ABV), you will enjoy this perfect blend of artisanal, handcrafted ice cream with a perfectly mixed Patron tequila cocktail. We anticipate the line at Tipsy Scoop, located at 217 E 26th Street in NYC, will be a very long one, so we advise you and your friends to get there early.

As you’re celebrating National Tequila Day, please remember to always drink responsibly…..or in this case, eat responsibly, and to never drive while intoxicated.  If you’re one of the lucky 200, share your Tequila Mexican “Hot” Chocolate ice cream photos using #NationalTequilaDay. Enjoy!

 

Beat the Heat with San Bernardo Italian Escapes Ice Cream

As the saying goes, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream”, and we’ve been screaming for the decadent San Bernardo Italian Escapes Ice Cream flavors since winter. Since Mother Nature has finally realized we’re in the warmer months, we can finally sing the praises of (and keep cool with) the sinfully delicious, and utterly indulgent range of San Bernardo Italian Escapes Ice Cream pints, commanded by Owner and President, Jonathan Tammara. The family owned San Bernardo Ice Cream has been in business for over 40 years by the same family and offers signature flavors created with natural flavors and the finest ingredients from around the world.

We were first introduced to San Bernardo Italian Escapes Ice Cream last winter, not the best season to enjoy frozen treats, but we survived thanks to the tropical heat setting in our apt. That’s a very different story now that we’re experiencing 90+ degree days. The San Bernardo Italian Escapes Ice Cream pints are available in seven delicious flavors: Amaretto Praline Pecan, Biscotti, Cannoli, Italian Cheesecake with Raspberry Swirl, New York Style Cheesecake, Spumoni, and Tiramisu. These most famous Italian ice creams flavors are made with only natural, quality ingredients for a pure, creamy and delicious ice cream experience. It is quite difficult to select a favorite, and every time you think you have one, the next flavor blows you away. Like their other “escape” ice cream collections, the San Bernardo Italian Escapes Ice Creams contain no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, and no high fructose corn syrup.

Amaretto Praline Pecan

The ultimate old-world indulgence, a rich amaretto ice cream filled with crunchy, sugar-covered pecans.

Italian Biscotti

An all-time Italian favorite transformed into a creamy frozen treat. It boasts biscotti ice cream with a vanilla base, with a dash of almond and finished up with almond slivers, chocolate-covered biscotti pieces, and a thick caramel sea salt swirl.

Cannoli

Even better than you remembered it. Painstakingly crafted with ricotta cheese and blended with pieces of chocolate-covered cannoli shell, this cannoli ice cream evokes the warmth of an authentic Italian kitchen.

Italian Cheesecake with Raspberry Swirl

In true Italian cheesecake fashion, this ice cream base includes real mascarpone cheese and is topped off with a thick, decadent raspberry swirl.

New York Style Cheesecake

This luscious, authentic New York-style cheesecake ice cream conjures up the Big Apple with the magic of graham cracker pieces, real cream cheese, and rich sour cream.

Spumoni

A traditional Italian dessert, taken to the next level. Bernardo’s signature Spumoni includes chocolate swirled with pistachio, strawberry and vanilla ice creams, mixed with fresh sliced cherries and pieces of almonds, and topped off with a tantalizing hint of amaretto.

Tiramisu

The only thing better than tiramisu is tiramisu ice cream. This fabulous re-creation of an old Italian classic includes marsala wine and an authentic mascarpone cheese base to complete the experience.

The San Bernardo Italian Escapes Ice Cream collection is available in 16oz Pints and 48oz Scrounds and are a delicious way to cool down in this sudden and instant heatwave we’re experiencing.

There’s Always Time for Tea w/ These Uncommon Tea-Based Products

We are tea lovers, no doubt about it, so we’re always looking for new, exotic flavors to enjoy and of course, new methods. Most people enjoy tea two ways: a hot cup (with or without milk) or as a tall glass of iced; we’re here to tell you there are other, uncommon, and delicious ways to enjoy this wonderful infused drink, and we’re going to share them with you now. We love a good cup of the hot herbal brew, and a cooling glass of it iced as much as the next person, but let’s face it, that can get boring, there’s no excitement in it. If you’re ready to indulge in some unique and sophisticated flavored treats, save the following brands to memory, because you will want them on your next grocery shopping list: Tea-rrific, Brewla Bars, and The Owl’s Brew, for their products prove you can have and enjoy tea anytime.

TEA-RRIFIC ICE CREAM

Tea-rrific_Ice_Creams_ww.mylifeonandofftheguestlist.com

Are you ready for a little love affair? Forgive us if this gets a little R-rated but once you taste any of these orgasmic tea-flavored ice creams. We hope you’re ready for spoonfuls of intense joy because once you begin eating out of any of these pints, you will not put it down. Fair warning, be fully prepared to eat it all. Tea-rrific is everything we imagined, and much more. We tried and failed to limit ourselves to just a few scoops, but we are powerless to these exotic ice cream flavors, which include the following: Earl Grey, Chai, Chamomile, Matcha, and Lavender. Whether you’re a tea lover, ice cream lover or whatever, you will fall under the spell of these sinfully decadent and flavorful ice creams. We would have included photos of the ice cream itself out of the pints, but that would only happen if the ice cream lasted longer than 3 minutes in our possession. Behold the available six flavors in all their delicious glory:

Masala Chai – a warm blend of Assam black and rooibos teas with sweet aromatic and peppery spices

Ginger Matcha – a sweet bite of fresh ginger perfectly balanced with delicate grassy notes of premium Matcha green

Lavender’s Blueberry – a sweet floral blend of black tea and lavender with a fresh blueberry puree

Chamomile – Notes of apple and honey from Egyptian chamomile flowers.

Chunky London Mist – malty and citrusy notes of Earl Grey with a hint of vanilla, rich semi-sweet Belgian chocolate flakes, and buttery roasted pecan chunks

London Mist – malty and citrusy notes of Earl Grey enhanced with a hint of vanilla

We see a future full of multiple trips to Whole Foods, Fairway, Dean & Deluca, and may other retail locations to get our fix, but if they ever sell out, we can always buy our favorite flavors directly from the tea-rrific online store. Make room in your freezer, but don’t worry, it won’t be for long.

We recently got reacquainted with the tea cocktail mixers (we first discovered them last year at another event) at one of their events, where curated cocktails were served to a very appreciative crowd.  That evening, we indulged in the following cocktails: Pink and Black Grouse (mixed with The Black Grouse Whiskey), New Market Float (mixed with ice cream and the Famous Grouse Whiskey), and a Malt and Tea (mixed with Zyr Vodka and pineapple). If you love a good cocktail and are a fan of teas (or not, either way, you’ll be happy), grab a one or two of this ebony-hued bottle, you won’t regret it.
