Alcoholic ice-cream treats have been around for a while, but actually getting drunk, or even a bit tipsy on them is a challenge, because, well, they aren’t very alcoholic. Enter, Buzz Pop Cocktails, a range of gourmet Italian sorbets that pack that punch you’ve been looking for.
Buzz Pop Cocktails are made from fresh fruits and premium liquors, but what really sets them apart from other boozy frozen treats is the alcohol content. While most so-called alcoholic ice-creams have an alcohol content comparable to beer – around 4.5% ABV – Buzz Pop Cocktails are three times stronger, at 15% ABV, which means one is probably enough to get your head buzzing. They come in packs of eight, so you can get yourself hammered on ice-cream, although it will cost you.

Licking your way to a hangover is apparently a lot more expensive than just chugging booze. An eight-pack of Buzz Pop Cocktails will set you back $99.99, and if you want them delivered to your door, you’ll have to cough up an extra $34.95 for shipping. The good news is that you’ll probably forget about all the money you burned after just a few licks.
The company behind Buzz Pop Cocktails is based in Las Vegas – somehow, that makes sense – but you can find the frozen treats at restaurants and shops around the country, and they’re also available for order online. They are currently available in eight delicious flavors – Pink Paradise, Southern Belle, Blueberry Mania, Mango Passion Fruit, Caribbean Breeze, Moscow Mule, Watermelon Patch, and Lemon Drop Martini – but the company claims to have a total of 75 flavors in rotation throughout the year.
And if you’re worried about all them nasty calories, you can rest easy, each Buzz Pop Cocktail reportedly has just 100 calories. Lots of booze and low-calorie content? What’s not to like?
