Best Gelato Cocktails 

The Monkey Box

Staff Pick

The folks at the Monkey Box, in the old Pioneer Hotel building, have created something truly dangerous: cocktails with gelato. It's dessert and a drink, all in one. The McManus has coffee liquor, Irish whiskey and vanilla gelato, and is almost too good to be drinking--you want to savor it with a spoon. The gelato margarita is surprisingly refreshing--the vanilla gelato adds a deeper sweetness to the tanginess of the lime, tequila and Cointreau. The death by chocolate (crème de cocoa, vodka and dark-chocolate gelato) is utterly amazing, and there's even the option of ordering Guinness with vanilla gelato. Your Irish grandma and your Italian uncle would be shocked, but they'd be missing out on a truly unique drinking experience.
