If you can’t bare the lines but crave a creative pint to dig your spoon into, then LA Creamery Artisan Ice Cream may be more your style. Delivered to your doorstep, this all-natural, organic ice cream collection has decidedly more adult overtones. Just check out their line of boozy ice creams in flavors like Chimay, Moonshine + Caramel Corn, Absinthe, and Tennessee Whisky.

Or, if you can never have too much bacon, dig into Porc Phat, made of Spanish Iberico lardo, Asian pears, hazelnuts, and mint gel. At LA Creamery, treating “ice cream as an art form” is their motto – literally. That’s not too surprising considering it’s the brainchild of the same guy who brought Los Angelenos’ Umami Burger.

When pork-riddled, boozy, cupcake-sandwiched ice creams are just not what you’re craving, there’s no shortage of cool (pun intended) spots in town. The shaved ice cream at Sno is causing quite the stir andBeachy Cream’s surf-inspired lot always charms us too. Whatever you go for, you’ll need little excuse to polish your cone off. [Red Velvet close-up photo by Christine Chiao for Serious Eats; Boozy Ice Cream photo by Bakers Royale]
