Lick / Blushing Blueberry
At Lick on South Lamar, all of the milk and cream is sourced from local farmers. Through early August, sample the Blushing Blueberry, made with gin and blueberries. Or, snag a scoop of inventive match-ups like Roasted Beets and Fresh Mint, and Dark Chocolate with Olive Oil and Sea Salt. Vegans, turn to a dairy-free menu of Toasted Coconut and Vanilla and Strawberry Swirl.
Coolhaus / Gin & Tonic
Elderflower, gin and lime ice cream make up the Gin & Tonic flavor at the beloved creator of “farchitecture,” a combination of food and architecture. Customize your adult ice cream sandwich with a rotating selection of alcohol-inspired flavors like Whiskey Lucky Charms, Mint Julep, Bourbon Pecan Pie, Strawberry Mojito, Maker's Manhattan, White Russian and Guinness Chip.
Swift's Attic / Strawberry Fields
The foodie haven offers a specialty list of ice ball cocktails, including the toasted coriander sherbet-based Strawberry Fields, a sophisticated frozen aperitif that takes the form of an ice ball topped with prosecco and Santo Azul Blanca tequila. Need more reasons to celebrate? Add an extra shot to any ice ball.
