I scream, you scream, we all scream for Cream alcohol-infused whipped cream. With warmer days on the way, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with cocktails inspired by summertime classics. Flavors of the whipped cream include chocolate, caramel, vanilla, cherry and raspberry, and they can be found at Sigel’s for $11.99 a can.
