To mark the beginning of National Ice Cream Month, a Las Vegas ice cream shop is to unveil on Tuesday a new flavor: All-American Breakfast.
Yep. Ice cream—it's not just for dessert anymore. Happy National Ice Cream Month (with thanks to President Ronald Reagan who designated it as such in 1984).
The breakfast ice cream is accompanied by – what else? – a scoop of coffee-flavored ice cream, using espresso from Sambalatte, a neighboring coffee bar.
Both BLVD Creamery and Sambalatte are in Monte Carlo's new outdoor plaza, on the sidewalk along Las Vegas Boulevard.
During National Ice Cream Month, the ice cream parlor will also be serving some adults-only flavors infused with alcohol. They include:
--Black Cab, a blend of blackberries and Cabernet wine.
--Horchata Mama, a flavor inspired by the Mexican drink and made with grains, ground almonds, seeds and rum.
--Suds Sorbet, which combines Shock Top beer and orange zest. Tipsy Bubbles, an effervescent treat for which Prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine, is a core ingredient.
There's enough alcohol in these flavors that ID is required when ordering. You have to be 21 or older to indulge.
Throughout the month, a buy-one-scoop-get-another-free promotion will be offered.
BLVD Creamery is open 11 a.m.-11 p.m. daily.
