Intoxicating ice cream shop coming soon to East Austin


What’s your perfect nightcap? A stiff cocktail? A glass of wine? An indulgent dessert? You can have it all with the arrival of Prohibition Creamery, opening in East Austin this spring.

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.

Prohibition Creamery will inhabit the former WuWu Sushi bungalow at 1407 E. Seventh St., joining nitrogen-obsessed shop, Spun, as another innovative ice cream shop on the east side.
