Go Whipped Lighting, Go Whipped Lighting!

New Jersey has a bad rap. Whether it’s the reality TV shows, the jokes about the smell or even the recent decision by the governor to lower the flags in honor of Whitney, people are always picking on the home state of my hubs.

One thing I love to do when I visit the dirty jerz is to stop by Joe Canals. No, this isn’t a friend of Brady’s – it’s the liquor store. They always have cool wines and liquors that aren’t always readily available in Pittsburgh because PA is a control state (the state controls the liquor).

On a recent trip, I spotted this – Whipped Lighting. As the tagline states, Whipped Lighting is the first alcohol-infused whipped cream.

With flavors like Spiced Vanilla, Strawberry Love, Chocolate Mint, Tropical Passion, Coconut, German Chocolate, White Chocolate Raspberry and Caramel Pecan, this “Whipahol” is sure to jazz up almost any cocktail. I mean this stuff is perfect for shots and coffee drinks. It’s totally one of those “Why didn’t I think of that” inventions!

The site is full of recipes and here are a few to show you all how Whipped Lightening is used!

If this still isn’t in PA by the time of my next trip, I’ll bootleg some past state lines ; )
