It’s Friday, so what’s a beer or two between friends? Especially if said beer has ice cream in it. We know it sounds a little weird, but it’s actually delish! And here’s where you can try it.
Craving a nice cold beer while walking the hot streets of Wynwood?
Jessica Weiss Levison, Serendipity Creamery: “The people of Wynwood are very thirsty.”
Or maybe you prefer the sweet treat of ice cream.
Now, you don’t have to choose.
Jessica Weiss Levison: “Some of the biggest sellers are J. Wakefield Stout, piña colada sorbet and now we have a White Russian ice cream, so we’re constantly testing different versions.”
Serendipity, an ice cream shop in Wynwood, is making delicious beer floats.
Jessica Weiss Levison: “It’s basically the same thing as a root beer float, but made with actual beer.”
Sounds tempting, doesn’t it?
Candice Nestel: “It’s the best of both worlds. You get ice cream and a nice cold beer on a cold day.”
Believe it or not, some brewskies go perfectly with ice cream.
Jessica Weiss Levison: “One combination that tested really well was Blue Moon beer with blood orange sorbet, and a new one that we launched is Funky Buddha Hop Gun with piña colada sorbet.”
Danielle Ciolfi: “The piña colada is just really refreshing and sweet, and so it brings out the sweetness, but then there’s the bitter undertones of the IPA, which I really like. I’m a big beer fan, so this is like the best thing on a hot day.”
Getting the flavors just right isn’t as easy as it seems.
Jessica Weiss Levison: “Constant taste testing, because you don’t typically think of ice cream with beer, in the two independent forms, married, so I’ve had to do a lot of begging.”
Since skateboarders are known to drink fluids, Deco asked a random boarder for his expert opinion.
Skateboarder: “Oh, this is pretty good.”
If you’re more into whiskey, ask for a spiked milkshake instead.
Jessica Weiss Levison: “So the milk itself is spiked, and then we have different house made sauces, so we have a Kahlúa caramel sauce that we put on top, or a chocolate whiskey.”
Sounds divine, and perfect for Wynwood.
Gregg Schapiro: “It’s a party area and everyone likes to drink, and it’s really hot outside, so a nice cool drink always fits.”
More boozy combinations are in the works, and we’re always up for a tasting.
Jessica Weiss Levison: “It’s a constant evolution. How can we sneak liquor into something?”
