Dessert: Ice cream infused with Jameson whiskey ($3)
Don’t scoff when you’re carded for a kiddie cone: According to Cody Butler, who invented this concoction, there’s about a shot of whiskey in each serving. “I recently perfected it again to make it stronger,” Butler says. While whiskey is the standard flavor, other types of booze can be infused too. The icy treat is a customer favorite. At least 20 cones came out of the kitchen during my visit.
Blood alcohol level: .12
Verdict: Way better than anything at Dairy Queen. I better not get behind the wheel.
