I recently joined a group of bloggers for the chance to preview Metropolitan Market’s free ice cream social. We sipped boozy floats and sampled exotic flavors of local ice creams. And starting August 15 at all their stores, you can too! Here’s a peek at what’s in store…
For a grown up twist on the traditional float, they swapped it with cider and ginger ice cream. Oh yes, the straw made it perfect.
Have you ever had ice cream drizzled with olive oil and sea salt or balsamic vinegar? Yeah, me neither…definately a new twist!
Black sesame ice cream is also a first for me…I have to say, I kinda liked it!
Of course they carry everything you need from making your own ice cream to topping off your homemade creations. Be sure and check out the ice cream social schedule for one coming near you.
To further inspire you to step out of your ice cream comfort zone, I’m giving a way a copy of Seattle’s own Molly Moon’s book, Homemade Ice Cream: Sweet Seasonal Recipes for Ice Creams, Sorbets, and Toppings Made with Local Ingredients.
Arranged in the book by season–with the focus on using local, fresh fruit and herbs in combinations that are both familiar and surprising–you will find recipes for most flavors imaginable and even those a little unimaginable.
