National Ice Cream Month gives us the perfect excuse to taste, devour, and write about ice cream of course! However, because this is a wine and spirits site too, there had to be a way to work them both in. Thanks to Belvedere, for providing these recipes and photos so we can make these “Ice Cream Cocktails” for insanely delicious summer sips.
