Booze

icream1

Ok, so I’ve heard about beer or cocktail-flavored ice creams, but did you know that you can buy ice cream that features genuine booze as a main ingredient? The Ice Cream Bar offers pints that are made with actual alcohol, and some of their cocktail ice cream flavors include White Russian, Mojito Sorbet and more. They also offer a few different beer versions too using brews made by Goose Island and Terrapin. The beer ice creams feature an ABV of two to three percent, and the cocktail ice creams have an ABV of 8 percent.

The bad news? It looks like the ice cream is being offered at a few select locations in and around Georgia only.

Gil Scout cookies are one of the most addictive substances on Earth, and now they’ve been turned into delicious shots. Trefoils, Samoas, Dosisdos, and Thin Mints have all gotten boozy in these recipes that sound pretty darn good. It’s still months before any of us will get our cookies, so this ought to make the time pass a little more quickly.

Check out the video after the break for the full recipes.

Do you know how Batman opens his beer? With the bottle opener on his utility belt, of course. But if you’re a fan of the Dark Knight and you’re hoping to pop open a couple of cold ones (but you lack a nifty utility belt), try picking up this 3D-printed, stainless steel Batman ring. It’s available with either a normal band or a bottle opener design. It’s available in US ring sizes four through 14.

fireball whiskey

Are you a fan of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey? Some of the product was recently pulled from shelves around Europe due to the fact that it contains propylene glycol. The substance is also found in antifreeze but is generally regarded as safe by the FDA and is used in a wide range of foods as a sweetener and preservative. That said, it’s still a bit unsettling. Fortunately, there is an alternative.

PopSugar has created a video to show you how to make your very own fireball whiskey with a few simple ingredients.

Watch the video after the break and learn how to whip up Fireball whiskey at home.

Planning a sci-fi/comic-themed Halloween party? Well, you’re going to need some festive cups for the event. Sure, you could go the ol’ Solo cup route, but if you want to do something special you’re going to need some exceptional drinking vessels. For instance, the above Alien-themed pint glasses have a retro flair and can carry 16 ounces of your favorite beverage. They also feature scenes from the movie paired with the four-part lifecycle of the Xenomorph.

If chestbursting isn’t your thing, you could always go the classic Marvel route with some Deadpool-themed pint glasses.

Check out the back of the Alien glasses along with the Deadpool versions after the break…

bike et

Some guy in Queensland had one too many and decided he’d try his luck at stealing a life-size Yoda statue. Since that seemed too easy, he added a little Jedi-level challenge attempting to do this by setting the Jedi Master atop the handlebars of a bike (that he also stole). The man was arrested and Yoda was taken into custody. The best part is the official statement from the police which read:

“Yoda was later released from the Ayr watchhouse without any charges being laid but [a] caution for not wearing a helmet when riding a bike.”

The similarity to the bike scene in E.T. was also not lost on the police who described the similarities as “uncanny”.

Now I want to see a complete recreation of E.T. with a drunken Aussie playing Elliott.
