CANTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — You can't have a cold one much colder than this, as alcohol-infused ice cream arrives to the frozen aisle of grocery stores across the Greater Boston Area.
Nisreen Galloway started her ice cream business Crème de Liqueur with her friend from college Elizabeth Nash, and nowadays sell their product wholesale to markets in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and in the Milwaukee area of Wisconsin. WBZ's Kim Tunnicliffe spoke with Galloway who detailed the kind of flavors Crème de Liqueur offers at the locations like the Main Course Market in Canton.
"Technically it's a frozen custard, so it's got a little eggs and little bit more fat which is why it's so rich and creamy. We have flavors like Pistachio Amaretto which is chalked full of pistachios, and Chocolate Brownie Bourbon which is infused rich caramelly bourbon and brownie bites," Galloway said. According to the co-founder, Pistachio Amaretto is proving to be their most popular choice.
Each pint of Crème de Liqueur includes two percent alcohol, and are made and distributed from a kitchen in Rockland, Galloway says. Because of the alcohol content, interested customers will need to be aged 21 or over to purchase the ice cream themselves.
