July is National Ice Cream Month and what better way to celebrate than with a little booze & your favorite frozen treat — Heck! Why not just blend them together and call it a day?
Superstition Farm, located in Mesa, Arizona is now host to the Edible Exchange which is a wonderful organization whose mission is to connect communities to local food through education and barter. They are currently hosting their second educational series at Superstition Farm on Thursday, July 19 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The event called, “Moos, Booze & Schmooze” is open to the public and guests will be able to meet the local dairy farmer, eat dinner off the Super Farm Food Truck, tour the farm and shop the indoor Farmer’s Market.
Now I know all of this sounds absolutely fabulous, especially for a Thursday evening, but you’re probably wondering, “What about my alcoholic ice cream, does it come in a frosting mug?” Yes, Yes, the good stuff! Each guest will be able to make an ice cream sundae, float or shake using products from Udder Delights which is Superstition Farm’s free standing ice cream store. If you’re over 21 and ready to partake in the beverages, Udder Delights is ready to pair your flavor of choice with your liqueur of choice! Sounds yummy to me, especially on a Thursday leading up to the weekend!
Speaking for myself, I really was unaware of the amount of farmers there are here in Arizona. The great part of Edible Exchange is they are bringing the Farmer to Consumer which is perfect for the way our communities are moving in wanting to eat local and know where their products are coming from.
What better way to enjoy a Thursday afternoon than finding out more information about our community in a relaxed and casual environment, while getting tipsy on some ice cream? Can’t beat that!
