One of the best things about summer is ice cream. In the winter, ice cream is eaten when you’re crying on the sofa watching The Notebook. But in summer, ice cream is enjoyed while you soak up the sun and show off the great results of those endless spinning classes.

This is exactly what Ice & Slice by Shot are doing, with the launch of their brand-new ice cream ‘bar’, featuring alcoholic gelato. Flavours will include Prosecco, Negroni and Aperol Spritz. These new flavours are […]
