Ice cream and alcohol were made for each other. Beat the summer heat with these seven boozy ice cream recipes!
When the weather is as unbearable as it's been lately -- sometimes reaching up to 100-plus degrees on a good day -- you're in desperate need of an ice-cold drink that'll not only help with the heat but be refreshing and sweet, too! We did a little research and found some boozy ice cream recipes that'll cool you off this summer (and give you a light buzz).
But, if you're not in the mood to put in the work and make your own creations (even though that's half the fun!), there are pre-made pints of alcohol-infused ice cream that you can purchase in some Colorado liquor stores.

At one point or another, we've all tried vodka-infused gummy bears (hello, college flashbacks!). But, if you're wanting to get a little creative with the concoction, turn them into sweet popsicles! It's the best of both worlds. View the recipe on A Spicy Perspective.

It's the tartness of the tequila-lime combination mixed with the sweetness of a sorbet, and it's absolutely delicious. Serve this frozen treat at a summer barbecue and end the evening on a sweet note! View the complete recipe on My Recipes.

This recipe utilizes homemade tonic, which gives the ice cream a tea-like flavor. Personally, I'm not much of a gin and tonic drinker, but I'll give this one a chance. After all, it's gin o'clock somewhere! View the full recipe on Scoop Adventures.
