Listen, we love plain old non-alcoholic ice cream just as much as the next person. But, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t all about that boozy version you occasionally see pop up on a menu when you least expect it.

There’s just something about the crazy combo of alcohol and ice cream that works. From spiked milkshakes to booze-infused ice cream, we’ve rounded up some local spots serving up frozen adult treats.
