IS mixing dairy and booze is not kosher or some such thing?

FTFY.

So it can't be sold because they don't know how to classify it? How about classify it as an ice cream that can't be sold to under 16 year olds. Done.

Wrong country,

It isn't illegal, it just hasn't been addressed by current laws.
The important question: is it delicious?

God I hope not, because my local brewpub's Vanilla Stout Ice Cream Float is awesome.

Think it was Nova Scotia where they have drivethru beside beer stores. But the law states that the alcohol can not be within the drivers reach. So cops make easy money stopping cars coming out of the drive-thru as they get on the public road.
Drive-thru owner says that the car should of stopped in the parking lot to put the beer out of the drivers reach, but that would make the drive-thru obsolete.

Fun fact: A while back I shipped a bottle of wine to a fellow TFer in NOLA.....and I had to break the law in order to do so.

/I'm hardcore like that.

Ice, cream, Mandrake? Children's ice cream?

Funny I had bourbon pecan gellato a couple weeks ago in the French Quarter. And it was awesome.

Well wine is pretty damned commie, I mean if it was real jeebus loving murican it would have bourbon.

Love those drive-thru daiquiri stands.

You would not BELIEVE the things you can buy in Japan. Wine ice cream? Try Fish Vodka. Drive through? How about a vending machine instead.

When I was a kid my dad would often pull up to an ABC liquor store and get mixed drinks to go. Then they stopped selling them mixed and instead sold cups of ice with a bottle and mixer. That way you could just mix them in your car as you drove down the highway. It was Florida at it's finest/worst depending on how you look at it. I always thought it was nuts.

Pleeeeease can I sell it? Whyyyy can't I selllll it? C'moooon, let me sell it.

We have drive-thru beer distributors in PA. You literally drive into the building through the front and exit out the back. You never leave your car. You just pop the trunk and they load it up for you. They also deliver to your house. Talk about convenience.
 
2013-04-20 05:50:13 PM  
I used to work in one in thibodaux we put a piece of tape over the strawhole to make it a closed container

I still don't understand the 64 ounce daiquiri thing... Don't you have an open container law? How is that not an open container?

Idunno. But Sambuca over vanilla bean ice cream is pretty rockin'. You have to eat it quickly, though, because it melts fast.

Yeah, but IIRC, you guys cannot buy beer at grocery stores and gas stations.

Diary Barn on L.I. had that drive-thru setup.
 
2013-04-20 05:59:27 PM  
You can't tell me that they don't sell these:
liquorama.biz
in Louisiana.

Wine and ice cream are basically this, except the dairy ingredient is frozen and the alcohol is derived from fruit. Winecream probably doesn't taste as good, though.

Really, though: just call it a daiquiri, coonass.

My only trip to Louisiana a group of us on a bike ride were sitting in a bar on Sunday morning (all good stories start that way) and the bartender turns away from the bar and slides open a window behind the bar that we hadn't even noticed. That's when we see that it's a drive through window with a patron in the car on the other side. The bar keep pours an insane amount of Tequila into a plastic cup and puts a lid on it and hands it to the driver and she pays and drives away.

Bartender turns back around to our group like nothing happened. We ask him what's up and he says that she's a regular on Sunday mornings - triple shot of Tequila on the way to church to take the edge off. The law says it has to have a lid to be sold for carry out. Crazy.

when I lived in florida about 25 years ago, when you went to a convenience store and bought a tall boy, they automatically put it in a tall boy sized paper bag. good times!

When I was in high school the drinking age went up to 21, but 30 minutes away in Louisiana it was still 18. The seniors all used to ride over there after school. (There were a couple of 18-year-old seniors that would drive in exchange for gas and free daiquiris.) They'd hit the drive thru daiquiri stand and take the back-roads back. We'd be getting out of football practice about the time they'd be coming back to school to drop everyone off at their cars. Sometimes they'd be nice enough to share some mostly-melted daiquiri or slide us a roach.

Good times.

/CS, yeah.

Interesting. I'd like to see how that tasted in a Bloody Mary.

Hangar 1 makes a wasabi flavored vodka. I really want to get my hands on a case for my Bloody Mary Sundays... But still haven't found anywhere that carries it.

media.nowpublic.net

I think some other companies make it now, still can't find them here...

You need a lid and either tape over the straw or the hole the straw goes into.  It make its a 'sealed' container that way.

Doesn't need tape, just can't have the straw in. Or else the daquiri place in Prairieville makes everyone break the law...

Also, I don't want wine ice cream, I just want some Bell's Oberon. Damn you, alcohol distributors!

Here (Texas), they usually either have a cup with a lid sealed on like with bubble teas, or the cup is heat sealed in a plastic bag.
