Prohibition Creamery, the alcoholic ice cream shop, is opening up on Tuesday, July 19. Ice cream and sorbets will feature boozy flavors like whiskey chocolate, tiramisu, sangria sorbet, and the fruity pineapple tequila sorbet. For those who want to forgo booze, there are non-alcoholic options too, like peanut butter and jelly, ginger caramel brown sugar, and peach.

With sweets comes drinking, and Prohibition is whipping up cocktails to pair with the ice creams. This means a tamarind whiskey sour, a take on the French 75, and more. Beer, wine, and Cuvee’s nitro cold brew are also available.

The ice cream can be topped with ingredients like bourbon whipped cream, and espresso liqueur pour-overs. Milkshake combinations include the sugar-filled Candy Bar, a triple bourbon one. A secret alcoholic flavor will be revealed on its website every month, Easter egg-style. There are also vegan and non-dairy choices, too.

Guests will be able to find seating throughout the bungalow, from the front and back patios, to the interior space. There’s also a private dining room available.

Hours are from noon to 10 p.m. Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, noon to midnight Thursday through Saturday. There is happy hour from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

Owner Laura Aidan took over the closed WuWu Sushi on 1407 East 7th Street for her ice cream shop.
