Senator’s Club Blended Whiskey, blueberries and lemon juice are blended to a sorbet-like consistency and served in a chilled silver julep cup, creating the ultimate Southern cooler. Each season, Tipsy Parson changes the flavors of its bourbon slushies, such as Concord grape and peach, and the boozy sipper never seems to go out of style.

This blended combination of bourbon, ice cream, milk and Nutella ($13.50) is as indulgent as the New Orleans street it’s named for. Served in a chilled sundae glass, this drink will appeal to the kid in you, much like the bowling alley itself. Pair the praline confection with the ultimate comfort food, Blue Ribbon fried chicken, and you may forget about bowling all together.
