DIYers have taken it upon themselves to create alcoholic Dippin' Dots using ice cream, liquor and liquid nitrogen. D.C. bartender Brennan Adams posted a how-to video on how to make "Cryo-Spheres" (his original name, Drinkin' Dots, got shut down by Dippin' Dots), which basically involves him squeezing drops of an alcoholic ice cream mixture into a vat of liquid nitrogen. (Pay attention to these more complete instructions if you decide to test out the frozen concoction, and remember that touching liquid nitrogen is a very, very bad idea.)
There you go. It's the buzz of the future.
