Drinkin’ Dots — Alcoholic Dippin’ Dots
How do you make a genius, but remarkably dangerous and unfortunately expensive dairy dessert even better? Add booze, duh.
Formerly known as “Drinkin’ Dots,” these “Cryo-spheres” from the A Bar in Washington D.C. trade the adorable alliterations of their prior namesake for more seasoned spirits, resulting in such creamy concoctions as “dark chocolate tequila” and “orange rum creamsicle”–which are then dot-dropped and flash-frozen to look just like the real thing.
According to A Bar’s Beverage Manager Brennan Adams, the name was changed after he received a trademark infringement letter from Dippin’, who filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy last year, but it doesn’t look like their efforts are doing anything to stop his innovation. As relayed by the Washington City Paper, Cryo-spheres are “just the beginning of his mad scientist ideas,” with Adams already brainstorming new boozy childhood delights like gummy cocktails and alcoholic gummy spoons.
