Move over wine slushies — New Yorkers will soon be allowed to purchase beer ice cream.

A new state law will authorize the sale of ice cream made with cider or beer.

The measure will require the frozen products to contain no more than 5 percent alcohol and prohibit sales to anyone younger than 21.

New York has allowed the sale of wine ice cream for a decade. Lawmakers voted earlier this year to add beer and cider ice cream to the list in an effort to take advantage of consumer interest.

The bill's sponsor, Republican Sen. James Seward, says the new product combines two of New York's leading industries: dairy and locally-produced beer and cider.
