TIP OF THE DAY: Make Your Own Version Of Haagen-Daz Spirits Ice Cream

What’s new at Häagen-Daz?

The company is rolling out a line of alcohol-infused ice cream treats this month, called Häagen-Dazs Spirits Collection (photo #1).

With flavors made variously with bourbon, rum and liqueurs, each pint contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume.

Federal law does not consider any beverage that contains less than 0.5% alcohol by volume to be alcoholic. But laws regulating alcohol in food can vary state by state.

Thus, it’s unclear if the collection will be available in all 50 states, but ask your grocer. Or better yet, see our tip below.

The boozy ice cream flavors include:

  • Bourbon Praline Pecan
  • Bourbon Vanilla Bean Truffle
  • Irish Cream Brownie
  • Non-Dairy Amaretto Black Cherry Almond Toffee
  • Rum Tres Leches
  • Stout Chocolate Pretzel Crunch
  •  
    Boozy milkshake, anyone?

    There are also Irish Cream Cookie Squares, chocolate cookies topped with Irish Cream ice cream and dipped in dark chocolate (photo #3). Here’s more information about all the flavors.
     
    Häagen-Dazs isn’t the first national brand to add alcohol to its ice creams.

  • Ben & Jerry’s launched a flavor infused with bourbon in 2017.
  • Smaller brands such as Tipsy Scoop and Mercer’s have been selling alcoholic ice cream for years.
  • Some terrific artisan companies, including Silver Moon and Wine Cellar Sorbets, have come and gone.

    HERE’S THE TIP: MAKE YOUR OWN

    Each pint in the Spirits Collection contains less than 0.5% alcohol per volume. That’s just half a teaspoon in the whole pint!

    THe line is more marketing than alcohol flavor. So if you want the boozy ice cream experience…

    Make your own!

    We’re not suggesting that you take out your ice cream machine and make a batch from scratch, although you certainly could.

    The easy ways to create boozy ice cream are:

  • Pour spirits over plain ice cream (photo #2).
  • Soften a pint on the counter, then stir in the spirits and return to the freezer.
  •

    You don’t need to make boozy ice cream first. Just pour the booze into the glass, on top of the ice cream!
