Drag Legend Juanita MORE! Now Has Her Own Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream
Humphry Slocombe is well known for their quirky ice cream flavors and fun collaborations (Queer Eye and Cirque de Soleil to name a few), and their next project in honor of Pride is no exception.
In partnership with Bay Area drag icon, Juanita MORE!, Humphry Slocombe's Jake Godby and Sean Vahey have created a one-of-a-kind flavor aptly called...Juanita MORE! According to the drag queen and restaurateur, "The flavors come together perfectly. It’s absolutely delicious and filled with loads of love!"
This new ice cream flavor is inspired in part by the specialty cocktail that Hi Tops, the staple Castro gay sports bar, created in her honor over 10 years ago.
The cocktail "was a sexy take on a Moscow Mule," explains Juanita MORE!, “The ingredients include blackberries, bourbon, and ginger beer. It was an instant hit and is still in great demand. It was a thrill to work for the team at Humphry Slocombe to recreate it in the form of ice cream.”
Jake Godby, co-founder of Humphry Slocombe, agrees, "It’s was an honor to create a tribute ice cream for the legendary drag icon Juanita More! Both are over the top, slightly off-color, and just the right amount of spice and fruit."
The new Juanita MORE! flavor will be available in all Humphry Slocombe scoop shops starting in June in honor of Pride, but Humphry Slocombe, Juanita MORE! and Hi Tops are hosting a launch party in San Francisco on Sunday, May 12 from 12pm-1pm. The event is free to attend, and fans will have the chance to get an exclusive first “taste” of this new boozy flavor PLUS to hang out with the drag legend herself!
