And a Happy National Ice Cream Month to You
There are a million reasons why we all love frozen treats. Here are just a few…
They can be boozy…
Tallboy Taco is offering a seasonal selection of Boozy Paletas, from a refreshing Strawberry Daiquiri made with fresh strawberries, orange, Brugel Añejo rum and Cointreau to a creamy Piña Colada made with coconut rum, Coco Lopez and fresh pineapple juice. Currently, the restaurant is featuring a boozy Horchata paleta. If you’d prefer a non-alcoholic option, they also are serving Mango, Spicy Pineapple, and Chia Lemon.
These Boozy Paletas are an awesome alternative to summer cocktails. But how do they differ? They are much lower in alcohol content. TIP: Don’t add too much booze or they won’t freeze. Instead, use your favorite cocktail recipe but cut the alcohol down by almost half – this will allow them to set up properly.
