In celebration of National Ice Cream Day on July 15, "GMA" is exploring some of the fainter candy that exists. So, go and treat yourself, and be sure to check out more of our extreme ice cream selections!
Spike your summer with these creations of ice cream with liquor infusion.
It's the month of National Ice Cream and to start we have received the scoop on the perfect treats for adults, served shaken, not stirred. And if that's not sweet enough, we explore the anatomy of one of the most worthy Instagram sundaes in New York City.
New York ice cream shop Tipsy Scoop, which specializes in flavors of artisan ice cream with liquor infusion, partnered with a company that specializes in "beverage experiences" called Muddling Memories to mix delicious cocktails from ice cream in Camp Arlo.
Melissa Tavvs, founder of Tipsy Scoop, told "GMA" that it was an easy decision to work with the mixologist and founder of Muddling Memories, Cody Goldstein, when the Arlo Soho hotel approached them for this emerging summer idea.
"There is a lot of synergy between creating a bar experience and creating a food experience," Goldstein explained. "Drinking ice cream and liquor is a kind of natural pairing and when we saw what Tipsy Scoop was doing with their ice cream infusion, we thought it was a perfect platform to create a cocktail using both ice cream and liquor."
Goldstein takes the already delicious flavors of ice cream with an infusion of alcohol such as vanilla bean bourbon and elevates them inventing innovative cocktails with complementary flavors and ingredients.
He said that Some Spike it Hot is his version of a classic from the city of New York that grew up enjoying – Serendipity frozen hot chocolate. Start with Mexican "hot chocolate" ice cream with tequila, add tequila, ancho Reyes (poblano liquor) and cinnamon syrup and then finish it off with a perfectly baked marshmallow and cocoa seeds.
Floating through life begins with vanilla bean bourbon ice cream and bourbon ice cream strawberry rhubarb adds some good bourbon, St-Germain elderberry liqueur and ginger beer topped with edible flowers and a vanilla meringue cookie.
Finally, Goldstein said The Enchanted Rose was inspired by his favorite Disney movie, "The Beauty and the beast". "It's made with raspberry limoncello sorbet, vodka, prosecco, fresh mint and covered with black chia seeds, which give the sweet and sour sparkling cocktail a texture similar to raspberry.

The ice cream is made with fresh orange sorbet with equal parts of Campari, Vermouth and Gin served in a Funfetti cone bowl decorated with a glazed sugar biscuit inspired by "My Little Pony" and covered with a hint of rainbow.
Tavvs said another summer staple in the store is the "frosé all day" ice cream. It is made with pink peach sorbet, topped with peach gummies, cherries and dried rose petals, and served in a red velvet bowl.
