Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Using "The nation's only frozen cocktail on a stick" as your tag line is kind of like using "The nation's only chicken nugget milkshake" or "The nation's only pizza available through an IV."

As in, there's a reason it's the only one in the nation (then again, it makes us wonder: Do other nations have their own frozen cocktails on a stick?). 

Anyway, that's the tag line of LiQ Bars, which just launched in Arizona, Nevada and, yes, South Florida. They're 100-milliliter popsicles with 6 percent alcohol by volume. You know, for when you want to get drunk looking like a 6-year-old. 

Alcohol in a phallus shape. Can't wait for the suggestive advertising. Anyway, these things are already available at the Trump and Deauville hotels. 

Then again, who are we to judge? We were slightly upset yesterday when Ingrid Hoffman didn't put rum in our mojito milkshakes

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
