For Pete's Sake with Saloon in Davis Square

As you know, early in 2022, the J.P. Licks family lost a cherished friend and colleague, Pete Deacon, head of the Catering & Bakery department.
Pete liked staying hydrated with his favorite flavor Kool-aid, Sharkleberry Fin. We created a new sorbet flavor with it to honor and remember him and we hope you enjoy this flavor - a tropical twist of strawberry, banana, and orange - as much as he did.

The artwork for this new flavor was created by J.P. Licks employee, Mason Osorio, who worked for many years with Pete and continues to make ice cream with us in our JP headquarters.

In an unexpected twist, our Davis Square neighbors, Saloon, reached out to us about creating a signature drink with the new Sharkleberry Fin Kool-Aid Sorbet to further help us honor Pete. The drink they came up with - "For Pete's Sake"- tops our sorbet with rose bubbles, an Aperol-coconut milk-sherry-reserve-vinegar reduction topped with a flaming lime filled with overproof rum. It's a perfect way to raise a glass and celebrate Pete, who we lost far too early. Cheers.
