A drink and dessert destination, Prohibition Creamery will serve cocktails, wine, beer, and alcoholic ice cream. Yep, Prohibition Creamery promises to turn your favorite booze into delicious frozen treats, with flavors such as bananas Foster, lime sake, and whiskey chocolate.
Founder Laura Aidan, a student of Penn State University's famous ice cream course, plans to change the menu regularly, incorporating new flavors and seasonal ingredients. Boozy desserts will be available in sorbet, shake, and float form, with plenty of alternatives for those who prefer dairy- or alcohol-free sweets.
