Governor Cuomo Gives Okay For Boozy Ice Cream With Alcohol


Governor Andrew Cuomo is giving the okay for ice cream and other desserts to be made with alcohol in New York state. The legislation will help New York's dairy farmers, liquor and craft beverage producers, food retailers and restaurants meet the increasing consumer demand for these new and innovative products. Don’t get too excited, there’s gonna be booze, but the percentage of alcohol in ice cream is being limited to no-more-than five-percent of alcohol by volume. It would also require the same labeling and warning statements similar to other sweets that contain wine, beer or cider.
