The New York State Senate has passed a law that will allow the manufacture and sale of ice cream and other frozen desserts made with liquor.

The New York Post reports alcoholic beverages like wine, cider, and beer are already allowed up to 5%, but the possible new law will open the door for spirits to be included in recipes. The law applies to sealed packages of ice cream and would only be available to those 21 and older.

Sponsors of the bill say it will help the New York dairy industry by allowing them to sell new and innovative products.

While the law passed the Senate unanimously it still needs to be passed by the assembly and eventually signed by Governor Cuomo. Where do you stand, should liquor be allowed to be mixed with ice cream?
