Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is ready to drop a “People’s Elbow” on Christmas with a new ice cream line that has a taste of his own tequila brand.

Johnson calls his new concoction Dwanta’s Teremana Spiked Eggnog ice cream, according to an article on People.com.

Also, the ice cream will use Johnson’s Teremana tequila to deliver a holiday-flavored taste. This is his second collection of holiday ice creams for Salt & Straw.

“The Rock” shares the news with the millions…and…millions of his fans on Twitter.

Johnson says in a press release, “Dwanta Claus is back to spread delicious holiday cheer with my friends at Salt & Straw and it’s getting boozy.” He invested and acquired an ownership stake in the ice cream company with business partner Dany Garcia last December.

Also, the star launched Teremana just before nationwide lockdowns began in March.

“I looked at this as an opportunity to create a tequila experience that brings people together in good times, not-so-good times, and everything in between,” he told PEOPLE in September.

“Teremana is a legacy brand for me,” says Johnson, who is father to daughters Simone, Jasmine, and Tiana. “I’m going to work extremely hard to not only deliver legacy to our consumers but also I want to pass on this legacy to my children.”

‘The Rock’ Opens Up About Family’s COVID-19 Battle

When Johnson talks about leaving a legacy, he means it. Johnson’s family lines run deep as his father, grandfather, and others were in professional wrestling.

Earlier this year, his family tested positive for the coronavirus. He shares what the experiences for him, his wife, and his children were like with the public.

According to the 48-year-old actor, he and his wife, Lauren Hashian, and their daughters, 4-year-old Jasmine and 2-year-old Tiana, all were sick with COVID-19. Johnson explains that the virus hit him and his wife particularly hard. 

Johnson, a former WWE star, experienced his fair share of serious injuries in the past. He says the coronavirus presented an all-new challenge in terms of recovery.

“Testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries, or being evicted, or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times,” Johnson said.

He classifies the virus as unique “because my No.1 priority is to always protect my family. And protect my children, my loved ones.”
