This ice cream is sure to get you a little tipsy this Christmas

Christmas is a time to celebrate the best things in life: family, friends and, of course, food and alcohol.

And with Christmas coming up, Tipsy Scoop, a New York ice-cream parlour, has incorporated two of your favourite things just in time for the big day.

Yep, the brand is releasing a line of holiday themed ice-creams and sorbets spiked with your favourite spirits, which are sure to get you in the Christmas, er, spirit.

Check out how delicious their ice-cream and sorbet look:

For lovers of sweet festive cocktails this will be a dream come true. Here are some of the flavours you can expect:

But wait, there’s more. After all surely they couldn’t go this far and not include gingerbread and eggnog.

Is your mouth watering yet?

The limited-edition flavours will be available online for US residents  through Goldbely.com from November 20 through to January 2018. Individual tubs will be US$12 each or you can try the Eat, Drink, Be Merry pack which includes all six flavours for US$72.

The news gets better as Aldi in the UK has released gin and tonic and champagne icy poles and with any luck they’ll be released in Australia before summer hits. Which would make Christmas just that little bit sweeter.
