Nothing says Aussie summer quite like eating a 40-cent Maccas soft serve on a stinking hot day. But every now and again, we need something slightly more grown-up and classy to cool us down. Preferably, of the alcoholic variety. Thankfully, we can now do all of the above at once, thanks to a new pop-up at Gin Lane in Chippendale, Sydney.[related_articles]67156,65706[/related_articles]
Gin Lane founder bartender Grant Collins has teamed up with frozen dessert expert David Lopresti of Florentia to create a range of boozy, cocktail-inspired soft serves. The retro-style treats are crafted with liquor freshly squeezed juices and fun garnishes.
