Boozy ice cream? Yes please! Our twist on the Pink Squirrel, the Pink Flamingo, gets that same pale pink hue as the Wisconsin-born cocktail, but without the fancy ingredients (what the heck is crème de noyaux, anyway?) and it is so, so good you’ll be happy to eat kale all week just to save up for this sweet treat. Then again… if you sip the Pink Flamingo while standing on one foot, the calories don’t count.
