Let’s take it to the next level. You can transform a classic dinner party into an after-party. Your guests don’t have to be home by 9 p.m. Enjoy the wonderful conversation and delicious dishes of dinner with fun cocktails and delectable desserts.

Tip: Give your friends dessert with a kick to start the party. What? Like alcohol-infused icecream.

This is right, people. Now, when picking up a bottle of wine for dinner, hosts and hostesses can grab a box of creamy and icy treats — called SnoBar ( — where each serving equals one full cocktail.

You can start an after-party by serving Margaritas or Cosmopolitan Ice-Pops. These are made with premium tequila and vodka, as well as triple sec. SnoBar also produces ice cream and desserts infused with alcohol in a variety delicious flavors.

Pink Squirrel Ice Cream is an example of this sweet and ambrosial flavor. It’s made with almond liqueur and brandy. Grasshopper, a minty alternative that uses brandy and creme d’menthe, is also available. Brandy Alexander Chocolate Chip is another SnoBar flavor.
