In 2016, Austin gained its first boozy ice cream parlor when Prohibition Creamery opened on East 7th Street. Owner Laura Aidan attended ice cream courses at Penn State University, Valrhona’s chocolate program in Brooklyn, and worked under a French pastry chef in order to master the art of infusing ice cream with spirits. Frosty creations range from ice cream (like Patrón dark chocolate sorbet, buttered pecan rum and mescal vanilla) to sangria shakes, milk stout floats and triple bourbon milkshakes. The epic Connoisseur Sundae comes with three current flavors, topped with whipped cream and Valrhona chocolate sauce. And while the cocktail menu appears to be its own entity, each drink was actually crafted to pair with one (or more) of the ice cream flavors. Just ask your bartender for recommendations, and pretty soon you’ll be sipping a Mexican Firing Squad alongisde your pineapple tequila sorbet.
