The booze-infused ice cream trend has been on the rise around Massachusetts and now Rhode Island has its first alcoholic ice cream shop. Zero Degrees Celsius opened recently on Westminster Street and so far it has gotten rave reviews.

To me, these boozed-infused frozen delights sound like the perfect thing for when you can't decide between drinks and dessert. It used to take a drive towards Boston for ice cream lovers on the SouthCoast to get their boozy ice cream fix. Daddy's Dairy in Stoughton has been serving Tipsy Scoop for a few years now and this summer Precinct Kitchen + Bar at the Loews Boston Hotel joined forces with Tipsy Scoop.

Several other restaurants in Massachusetts and Rhode Island jumped on the alcohol-infused milkshake game, some taking it to incredible levels (like the Boston Burger Company "freak frappe" pictures below) and others just literally putting alcohol in a shake. For Rhode Island, the new Zero Degrees Celsius is the first ice cream shop with alcohol-infused sundaes, shakes and cones on the menu.

Like the Boston Beer Company, they put some incredible frappes together with mounds of whipped cream, entire donuts and whole cookies on top, but they also will just give you a cup of boozy ice cream. Don't worry parents, you can take the kids along, because there are plenty of alcohol-free ice cream on site as well.

It seems like a nice changeup to the usual bar scene and a much tastier way to grab an after-work drinks with friends. The Westminster Street location means they'll be serving the booze-infused ice cream late night during WaterFire events as well.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
