“People were coming all the way [to East Harlem] to try [Tipsy Scoop],” she says. “We were in hairnets making ice cream, so that’s when we realized we needed a store.”

What can you find on the menu? Flavors such as Strawberry Sangria Sorbet, Mango Margarita, Red Velvet Martini, or Tequila Mexican “Hot” Chocolate, with each flavor only containing 5 percent ABV. You can even find shot glasses rimmed with sprinkles, just waiting for every sweet tooth to stop in for a taste.

Meet us there after class?
