Default Singapore: land of exotic ice cream and Tiger Beer sorbet

from Conde Nast Traveller:
from The Daily Traveler section:
Ice Cream Around the World: Singapore’s Tiger Beer Sorbet
At Island Creamery in Singapore, ice cream aficionados line up for locally themed flavors such as durian, Horlicks, and pineapple tart. But beer lovers have an unusual choice: Tiger beer sorbet.

It took ice cream maker Stanley Kwok, who considers Tiger draft his favorite thirst-quencher, 12 attempts to perfect the sorbet’s consistency. Foam and bubbles in the brew made the ice too airy, and alcohol takes longer to freeze than other liquids. But the efforts paid off: The final product is a perfect balance of the beer’s original crisp, citrusy flavors and subtle bitter hops, captured in a densely packed cold treat (and sold for S$2.80 per single scoop).

If you’re not keen on alcohol in your desserts, try the creamery’s trademarked Singapore special: teh tarik ice cream. Inspired by the frothy “pulled tea” traded in local Malay-Indian stalls, the scoop has all the intense tea flavor without the tooth-aching sweetness.
