Boozy Dippin' Dots Are the Best Way to Get Drunk as an Adult
This holds true for Dippin' Dots — those spherical little ice cream dots that invaded malls across America in the '90s — too. While the dots never quite turned out to be the "ice cream of the future," one genius bartender has figured out a way to use them to get, well, turnt.
The boozy Dippin' Dots were invented by Brennan Adams, the beverage manager for A Bar in Washington, D.C, Brit + Co noted. The treat was originally called Drinkin' Dots, but after Adams was threatened with a lawsuit, he renamed it to the much more generic (and way less fun) "Cryo-Spheres."
The boozy dots are actually quite easy to make — as long as you have access to some liquid nitrogen. All it requires is whipping up a boozy ice cream base (literally melted ice cream plus your booze of choice, the one pictured below is made from dark chocolate and tequila), pouring it into a bottle and squeezing out small drops into the liquid nitrogen to freeze. Scoop up the drops and pour it into a low ball or a martini glass and voila — the best parts of childhood and adulthood all in one glass.
Check out the easy steps below:
1) Pick up filled squeeze bottle
2) Pour drops into liquid nitrogen
3) Scoop out dots when frozen
4) Voila, boozy Dippin' Dots
