INVENTOR CREATES A MACHINE THAT TURNS ANY ALCOHOLIC DRINK INTO SOFT SCOOP ‘ICE CREAM’An inventor has developed a machine that turns beers and other alcoholic drinks into a soft scoop ‘ice cream’ that maintains its potency.
The ‘Below Zero’ machine takes any alcoholic beverage and crystallizes it in under 30 minutes for a treat that can, if you’d like, be covered in sprinkles and chocolate sauce.
Developed with WDS Dessert Stations in Hinkley, Illinois, the drink is first de-gassed to remove the carbon dioxide, then it is mixed with a gel, put in the machine, and out comes the ice cream.
