Alcohol-infused ice cream could be home delivered in Ohio if bill passes

The Ohio House of Representatives is set to vote Wednesday on a bill to allow for online ordering and direct shipping of alcohol-infused ice cream to customers as well as permit for delivery via a service such as UberEats or DoorDash.

House Bill 160 is scheduled for a vote in the House sometime after 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Back in June, state Rep. Catherine Ingram, D-Cincinnati, said in written testimony that the bill would include safeguards to verify that the buyer is 21 or older. The bill would also allow alcohol-infused ice cream sales from retail liquor establishments.

State law changed in 2017 to allow liquor permit holders to manufacture and sell ice cream that is up to 6 percent alcohol by volume.
