Why does your skin temperature increase after drinking and icy drink??

All I can think of is that the icy cools the blood, so this blood cools the brain, so the brain is almost tricked into thinking you are too cold, so it stimulates various methods to prevent heat loss etc... So I am see how reducing sweat and making hairs stand on end can do this, thus increasing skin temp, however vasoconstriction would occur...less blood flow near surface of skin..so less heat would be lost but surely the skin temperature would DECREASE?

Thanks in advance
