** the post below is an alcohol review, so if you’re under 21 years of age I’ve got a much better post for you to read today! Hey young world, the world is yours!
I’m not as big a drinker as I used to be. When I was in my early twenties (and arguably, not as smart as I am today), it was all about drinking whatever it took to achieve inebriation. Scotch, tequila shots and Jägermeister. That kind of thing. Highly potent liquids, known for not being delicious. Somewhere in my mid-twenties, it all turned around. Suddenly it became less about the drinks being devastating, and more about them being delicious. You’re much less likely to find me at a bar knocking back a shot glass (and then making the consequent I-just-drank-a-shot face). Now I’m happier to slowly sip something grown, sexy, and yummy. That way I can enjoy my evening without being completely blitzed and useless the next day.
Methinks my favorite hip hop superstars are feeling the same way as we all grow older. When I first heard that producer/rapper/designer/renaissance man Pharrell was collaborating with Diageo to create a unique beverage for da ladies, I was immediately intrigued. And then I had a bottle sent to me and I fell in love.
It’s called Qream (yes, with a Q) and it is decadent and absolutely delicious.
I got this package on an especially stressful day, and decided to immediately open it and have a taste of Qream. Then I tweeted the following:
Qream by @4real4rell is like strawberry Quik and Baileys had a love child. A delicious love child that makes your chest all warm inside. Yum
Let me break it down some more — Qream is an 12.5% ABV, 95% lactose-free cream liqueur that comes in both strawberry and peach flavors. From the official press release — “Qream was created for contemporary women who work hard and want to relax with friends at the end of the day,” says Williams. “I want them to reward themselves “deliciously.” Williams added, “Women make up half the population and Qream is about celebrating that power.”
Go ‘head, Skateboard P!
Since I was sent this bottle of yumminess for review, both my husband and I have been enjoying this intriguing new cream liqueur on the rocks and experimenting with cocktail recipes. Qream might be made for the ladies but fellas are going to enjoy it too. You can sip it on the rocks or mix it with other alcohol — coconut vodka, for example. You can enjoy it blended in a milkshake, baked into cupcakes, whipped into cream puffs…it is ALL good. Qream isn’t the kind of drink you want to guzzle all night — it’s creamy and rich, and more like an awesome new after-dinner drink. It’s the kind of thing I’d bring home to my family for Christmas. This could be the beginning of an excellent new holiday tradition – my mom is gonna love this stuff!
Thanks to Qream for the review submission.
What do you think, bellas? I’m betting you’ll love this stuff! If you’ve tried Qream, let me know your thoughts in the comments!
