Boozy adults-only ice-cream van is coming Cheshire

A boozy adults-only ice-cream van is set to visit Cheshire as part of a north west tour.

A Few Scoops will be serving alcohol-infused ice creams, sorbets and ice pops in Cheshire this summer.

The ice creams will be sold from Jolene, a pink tuk tuk, and Dolly, a pink push-bike as part of a summer.

A Few Scoops will be at Wilmslow Rugby Club on July 3 serving up the alcoholic ice-creams, which include espresso martinis and old fashioneds, along with pina coladas, peach bellinis and mojitos.

It will also be popping up at Tatton Park Foodies Festival from July 9 to July 11 as well as a regular weekly residence in Altrincham.

MEN reported that there are non-alcoholic flavours on offer too, including coke float ice cream and cherryade sorbet.

One of its residencies will be at the Not So Secret Garden in Altrincham’s Stamford Square, a new community hub with al fresco seating, deckchairs and a flower wall.

The business was created in June 2019 by Manchester local Alanna Atkinson.

She said: “When we started A Few Scoops, we knew we didn’t want a standard ice cream van, we wanted something that was different that made everyone whip out their phones to take a photo!

“We think we’ve achieved this with Jolene.”
