Ices Plain & Fancy

St. Louis’ Nitro Ice Cream Parlor

St. Louis, MO/December 22, 2016 (STLRestaurant.News) For the sweet tooth that craves cool treats year round, Ices Plain & Fancy flash churns made to order Ice Cream right before your eyes using Liquid Nitrogen at a negative 320 degrees.  Located in a beautifully restored historic Victorian building in the heart of the Shaw Neighborhood, this one of a kind Ice Cream Parlor serves up the Nostalgia.  It’s an experience in a colorful whimsical atmosphere.  Their classic Nitro traditional Ice cream flavors include Vanilla, Chocolate, Butter Pecan, Mint Chip, Cherry Cordial, Rocky Road and Salted Dulce de Leche Custard.  And according to Ices Plain & Fancy, Dairy doesn’t get to have all the fun!  Chef Max has created up a menu of several frozen Vegan treats that are as rich and full flavored as traditional ice cream, such as, Coconut Milk German Chocolate, Soy Vanilla, Soy Butter Pecan, Soy Mint Chip and Soy Cherry Cordial.

How about a little boozy creation to warm your pallet for the chill?  For those 21 & over Ices Plain and Fancy offers Cocktail Ice Cream.  They can do this, because liquid nitrogen is so cold that they can actually freeze alcohol.  And oh yes these chilly cocktail creations retain ALL the proof you’d find in a traditional cocktail!  They call it, Nitro Mixology!  Their signature cocktail creations feature: Johnny Jump Up (Vanilla Ice Cream, Jameson, Apple Bitters, and Strongbow Cider), Ok Fine!  (Vanilla Ice Cream, Rum Chada, and Fruit Loops), The Benjamin (Vanilla Ice Cream, Dickle Whiskey, and Pralines), Sazerac (Vanilla Ice Cream, Templeton Rye, Torched Sirene Absinthe, Peychaud’s Bitters and Orange Peel), Frozen Dude (Vanilla Ice Cream, Vodka and Kahlua), Ancho & Lefty (Chocolate Ice Cream, Ancho Reyes, Aztec Chocolate Bitters, Ancho Powder, and Cocoa Nibs), Dark & Fancy (Vanilla Ice Cream, Goslings Dark Rum, and Gosling’s Ginger Beer), 4 Hands Chocolate Stout Float (Vanilla Ice Cream, Cocoa Nibs, 4 Hands Brewing Co. and Chocolate Milk Stout), Cherry Not So Cordial (Chocolate Ice Cream, Luxardo, Amaretto, and Old Granddad), and Mrs. Marshall’s Old Fashioned (Vanilla Ice Cream, Old Granddad, Strongbow Cider, Peychaud’s Bitters, Luxardo Cherry, and Orange Peel).
