D.C. is known for its sweltering summers but luckily, we found some mouthwatering ice cream shops perfect for beating the heat in the Capitol.
At Ice Cream Jubilee, the basil-goat cheese and spicy-ginger strawberry sorbet includes fresh spun basil leaves and local sweet cream, made into a delicious savory ice cream with an extra creamy flavor. 301 Water St. SE #105, 202-863-0727
Bibiana offers eight different ice cream flavors on their menu, but if you’re looking for a chocolate fix their milk chocolate-mascarpone ice cream is a standout. It’s rich and creamy and perfect for when you're craving an intense and chocolatey sweet. 1100 New York Ave. NW, 202-216-9550
If you’re up for a salty-sweet treat that smacks of nostalgia and tastes just like milk at the end of a bowl of cereal, you’ll want to try Milk Bar’s Cereal Milk soft serve. The drink is made with milk, cornflakes, brown sugar, and just a bit of salt. For the purists out there, enjoy a birthday soft serve, made with Milk Bar’s birthday layer cake transformed into soft-serve ice cream with rainbow sprinkle topping. Milk Bar also just debuted a brand-new item, Milk Quakes, a frozen mashup of cereal-milk soft serve and Milk Bar mix-ins. 1090 I St. NW, 855-333-6455
Dolcezza takes full advantage of the sweet taste of ripened summer berries with their new roasted strawberry and blueberry-lavender flavors. Their method of roasting strawberries in their ovens, concentrates the berries natural sugars and kicks enhances the fruit's sweetness, resulting in a rich, creamy, and tangy strawberry gelato. If you lean more toward blueberry flavors, the gelato shop’s bluberry lavender boasts a rich blueberry-cream gelato with enough lavender for a slightly herby flavor. 550 Penn St. NE, 202-333-4646
