Buzz Bars

Posted: Updated:

Nothing beats the heat like a bucket of ice poured into one's bikini, but ice cream works too. You don't have to go that far to get cool, though. A new treat promises rich ice cream along with the flavor of delicious alcohol. Deco checked out the buzz on Buzz Bars.

The bar at Ocean's Ten on South Beach makes a mean margarita, but if you really wanna chill...

Woman 1: "It's dripping, but I love it!"

Order a Buzz Bar.

Elan Sassoon: "You have the Chocolate-Whisky, Vanilla Cognac."

Buzz bars are alcohol-infused ice cream treats for adults. If you're a big kid, Elan Sassoon is the ice cream man you've been waiting for.

Elan Sassoon: "There were quite a few people that came to me and said, 'Elan, if you can develop something that has my two favorite items in it, which is alcohol and ice cream, and put it on a stick, then we would love to carry that around the country."

Flavors include Bourbon St. Chocolate, Citrus Berry Drop with lemon vodka and Vanilla Daze, made with premium cognac. Bartender, I've got this round.

Woman 2: "It's Irish cream and coffee ice cream. I'm gonna just keep having them all night."

Woman 3: "This is the Drunken Cookie. An excuse to eat ice cream and drink liquor the healthy way."

Turns out putting ice cream and alcohol on a stick is a little tricky.

Elan Sassoon: "So the process to get the alcohol and the ice to infuse together, which has never been done, that was a technical issue which we seemed to have mastered."

If you plan on eating more than two, you might want to call a cab.

Elan Sassoon: "So the alcohol content varies from .5 to about 2.8. You'll get a buzz off one, big buzz off two."

Buzz Bars are available at select hotels on South Beach, and soon your local supermarket. Just look for the bar with the bee.

Elan Sassoon: "That's Simon the Bee. He's an English bee, very hardworking English bee, likes to have his cocktails now and then."
