Distilled Spirits Cocktails Frozen Solid in Classic Ice Cream Drink Flavors.
BLEND'S® is The Original Liquor Ice Cream
Blend's® is uniquely American. Their history begins with the Irish potato blight of the 1850's and the resulting famine which brought the Irish to America. The Irishman brought with him his unique habit of taking his first whiskey of the night mixed with fresh dairy cream - half whiskey, half cream. The Irishman pointed to healthful aspects of the cream, but many believed he coated his stomach with the cream to consume more whiskey.
After the First World War the returning Doughboys brought liqueurs back from Europe. Thomas Edison electrified the east coast and useful electric gadgets, such as blenders were invented. And women, now with the vote, began coming into bars, too. The time is now 1920 in Boston or New York, the bartender now takes the whiskey and cream adds ice and blends it in the blender into a thick gelatinous consistency. Women seeing the cocktail ask for it. But it was far too strong at half whiskey and half cream. So the attentive bartender adds a shot of dark creme de cacao for sweetness and the unique American invention known as the ice cream drink was created. From that one cocktail came the Grasshopper, Brandy Alexander, Pink Squirrel, Golden Cadillac, White Russian, et. al. Immediately thereafter ice cream was often exchanged for the ice and cream to sweeten the cocktail even more. Thus Ice Cream Drinks were invented in America.
Like the original invention Blend's® Liquor Ice Cream follow the same recipes used by America's finest bars and restaurants. All Blend’s® products are distilled spirits cocktails that contain 20% quality liqueurs and liquors and 80% rich super-premium ice cream. For example, a 10 ounce Blend’s® Brandy Alexander contains 1 oz. Brandy, 1 oz. dark Creme de Cacao (20%), and 8 ounces of superpremium ice cream. What makes Blend's® revolutionary is that they are solid just like ice cream, not semi-soft in a milk shake consistency like you find at bars and restaurants: Ready-to-eat solid, or to blend into a cocktail if you like. Blend’s® are the highest quality pre-made alcohol-based ice creams available in the world. While it looks like ice cream, the ATF says it isn’t because its intoxicating. The ATF and FDA have classified Blend’s® as distilled spirits. Because the ATF and FDA have determined Blend’s® to be a distilled spirits product the product is required to pay Federal Excise Tax (FET) and State Excise Tax (SET) and can only be sold where liquor is sold and only to legal adults. And to date, Blend’s® Liquor Ice Cream is the only product of its kind in the world.*
Alcohol acts like an antifreeze, melting the ice crystals, and alcohol reacts with the milk protein causing the ice cream to break down (separate). Blend's® Liquor Ice Cream unique stabilization system makes the commercial manufacture of alcohol-based ice creams and ice cream drinks possible. Only Blend's® is The Original Liquor Ice Cream: Sold only where liquor is sold because it uses real liqueurs and liquors to make each cocktail's flavor special.
