Now You Can Get Ice Cream Shop Wasted With Rainbow Sherbet Vodka

This goes out to all the kids who loved eating Daiquiri ice cream just because it looked cool and not because they knew what it was supposed to taste like. Pinnacle Vodka, makers of such childhood-inspired flavors as Cake and Whipped Cream and Pumpkin Pie have just made ice cream-flavored vodka a reality with their latest Rainbow Sherbet.

Meant to evoke “a nostalgic feel of summer memories,” the 70 proof Rainbow Sherbet offers notes of zesty orange, sweet lime and creamy raspberry — though, sadly, with absolutely none of the color which made the original ice cream so iconic.

On the plus side, the next time you have a hankering for some good ol’ nostalgia feels, your buddies won’t accuse you of being a pedobear for trying to hang out with the kids at Baskin Robbins. Probably.

Pinnacle Rainbow Sherbet is currently available nationwide at an SRP of $12.99 for a 750ml bottle, with another new flavor, Strawberry Shortcake, to be released later this year.

Fruit Infused Vodka Made With Vodka Zinger Is Practically a Health Drink

For all the hype over weird vodka flavors, the simple truth is that a lot of those flavors, well, they kinda suck. Sure, this Pumpkin Pie Pinnacle vodka tastes like pumpkin pie, but it’s an old, rotten pumpkin pie – the kind that makes your tongue tingle the longer you let it sit there, almost enough to make you fear it might very well fall off.

Frankly, vodka is just one of those things that shouldn’t really taste like anything. But while fruit flavored-vodka turns me off, the idea of sprucing up my daily fruit and veggie intake with the stuff is something I’m definitely not mad at.

Along with its sober counterpart, the Aqua Zinger, the Vodka Zinger is a kind of infusion blender/water bottle which allows users to store fruit in a bottom compartment, twist the top and watch as the ingredients slowly release their flavors into the clear and pure liquor through a fine mesh filter, like a tea bag.

It’s the perfect companion to all my late night Insanity binges. Goodness knows they’re a pain to get through sober.

Better Than Sex Caketini

When both a sugar high and a drinking buzz are of the utmost importance to you, then you’re one of those folks that can get away naming…creating…and consuming something called the Better Than Sex Caketini. Our friend Lisa Huff recently tried her hand at one, adapting a Paula Deen recipe under a similar name, but lathered in some quality booze in the process.

Utilizing Pinnacle Cake Flavored Vodka, pineapple juice, coconut milk creamer, French vanilla pudding mix, whipped cream and toasted coconut, Lisa shows you how to put together a Caketini in around 10 minutes!

Here’s the recipe, straight from Lisa’s blog:

The ever popular Is It Better Thank Sex Cake turned into a cocktail with coconut, pineapple, and French vanilla!
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup Pinnacle Cake Flavored Vodka
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk creamer
  • 1 teaspoon French vanilla pudding mix
  • Whipped cream
  • Toasted coconut
Instructions
  1. Mix vodka, pineapple juice, coconut milk creamer, and pudding mix in shaker with ice. Shake for about 30 seconds.
  2. Strain into glass. Top with whipped cream and toasted coconut as desired.
Notes

SNAPPY TIPS: This makes 1 drink, so multiple if you are serving more people.

SNAPPY SUBSTITUTIONS: Instead of French vanilla pudding mix, you could use vanilla. Substitute your favorite coconut milk for the creamer if desired.
