Long ago, in our graduate school years, we would go home when the library closed at 11 p.m. and make a batch of boozy ice cream.

Our specialties: Grand Marnier, Amaretto with crushed amaretti cookies, Harvey’s Bristol Cream Sherry and Kahlúa Coffee Chip.

We haven’t made them for years (there’s no room in the freezer when you’re a food writer). We miss boozy ice cream.

And trudging through trade shows and specialty food stores, we’ve personally come across only two brands with alcohol:

  • Wine Cellar Sorbets, a terrific line that unfortunately is no more.
  • Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream, 10 fab flavors of ice cream and sorbet that you can order online.
    And more recently, we discovered Tipsy Scoop.

    Tipsy Scoop is an inspired line of liquor-infused ice cream and sorbet.

    Artisanal and hand-crafted, the flavors are inspired by classic and contemporary cocktails.

    Made with local and seasonal ingredients, his season’s flavors include:
    Ice Cream

  • Blue Chair Bay Holiday Coquito Ice Cream
  • Boozy Bananas Foster Ice Cream
  • Cake Batter Vodka Martini Ice Cream
  • Spiked Spiced Pumpkin Pie
  • Truly Black Cherry Lemonade Ice Cream
  • Truly Original Lemonade Ice Cream

  • Mango Margarita Sorbet
  • Strawberry White Sangria Sorbet
  • Truly Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet
    There are also specialty flavors for the season:

  • G.H. Mumm Champagne Ice Cream
  • Hangover Cure Ice Cream Trio: Bacon Egg and Whiskey Ice Cream, Bloody Mary Sorbet, Ohza Mimosa Ice Cream
    We enjoyed all the flavors we tried, but prefer the creamy consistency of the ice cream to the sorbets.

    Check out the season’s flavors and place an order.

    If it’s too late for a gift package to arrive on time, send the lucky recipient an email with your message and a link to the Tipsy Scoop website.

    The anticipation will be as good as the gift!
