If popsicles, shaved ice and all those other icy treats make you think of adorable little kids lined up at cheesy sidewalk stands, you live in the distant past. These days, it’s hard to find a frozen dessert that’s not spiked with some sort of booze. And it’s probably served in a schmancy dining room or rooftop bar. Need proof? Here's a handy list for those days when the best escape is a dessert that doubles as your cocktail.
Coolhaus (Locations in L.A., New York City, Miami, Dallas and Austin)
Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery (Seattle, Washington)
Three Aces (Chicago)
Casa del Mar (Santa Monica, California)
Rooftop 866 (Atlanta, Georgia)
