Gelato Messina loves a creative ice cream flavour, and an inventive dessert in general. It also adores something else almost as much: collaborations. Messina lube, sunscreen, festive treats, craft beer spiders, sneakers, body washes and balm all either do exist or have existed, to name just a few of the brand's team ups in the past couple of years. Next on the list: FELLR seltzers that taste like Messina's sorbets.

If you like the dessert chain's yuzu, blood orange, and salted coconut and mango sorbets to lick in a cone or from a cup, and you like boozy seltzers, then we're betting you'll be keen on the FELLR x Messina Sorbet Series. Those three flavours will be available to sip from Friday, December 1 thanks to a new range that'll hit bottle-os such as BWS and Dan Murphy's, plus selected venues and festivals.

For drinking at home, at parties, on picnics and the like, you'll be getting your sorbet-inspired tipples in a ten pack. Messina and FELLR's advice: get in quick because these are limited-edition beverages.

The seltzers are launching with a series of festivities, too, whether you like dessert or drinks. Firstly, three new specials will arrive in Messina's cabinets at all stores for a week, or until stocks last: custard gelato with blood orange gel, baked sponge and whipped cream (from Thursday, November 30); mango and coconut gelato with salted coconut fudge and coconut biscuits (from Friday, December 1); and yuzu cheesecake gelato with baked cheesecake and dulce de leche (from Saturday, December 2).

You can also enjoy yuzu sorbet from Friday, December 1–Thursday, December 7.

The seltzers are also getting a Bondi launch party from 5pm on Friday, December 15 at Beach Road Hotel, with help from The Lazy Eyes and Gully Days.

And, a heap of pop-ups are on their way across Australia's east coast, with FELLR and Messina heading to Manly Beach's New Brighton Hotel, Victoria's Brighton Beach Hotel, Breakfast Creek Hotel in Brisbane and Miami Tavern on the Gold Coast — with dates set to drop via FELLR and Messina's socials.

The FELLR x Messina Sorbet Series hits BWS, Dan Murphy's, and selected venues and festivals on Friday, December 1.
