Last month, our friends at Yelp Cincy shared their Ice Cream Bucket List – and now we’re craving all.the.sweet.treats! So this month, we challenged our favorite Cincy gurus to pick the most unique milkshakes in town. After countless taste tests and treks to ice cream parlors in all corners of the tristate (tough job, right?), we present Yelp’s Guide to Cincinnati’s Most Creative Milkshakes:
The temperature outside keeps rising and Yelpers in Cincinnati are raising their straws to the best milkshakes the Queen City has to offer! Join us on a summer of exploring the best drinkable desserts in the city!
What used to be a barbershop in the 1940s, is now a family-owned coffee shop and ice cream parlor. Nestled in the center of downtown Milford among shops, restaurants, and antiques, this coffee shop and ice cream parlor is a must-see. When it comes to milkshakes, Milford Parlor’s Java whip (vanilla + espresso) takes the cake as the shop’s most popular.
While the twist may be known for twisting flavors together on a cone, they also know how to blend them together to form unique creations. How about a salted caramel mocha shake to satisfy your sweet tooth and fight that summer heat? Yes please.
Oakley + Montgomery
Two Scoops of french vanilla ice cream mixed with the sauce of your choice & heaping amounts of malt powder (if you want it!) combine to create an instant classic. If you’ve never been to Aglamesis Bro’s, prepare to step back in time in a vintage ice cream parlor. These are the kind of milkshakes that fill you with nostalgia and take you back to the good ol’ days of summer.
If the fact that this place is in Northside doesn’t tell you how eclectic it is, its rhyming name certainly will. Known for their locally sourced ingredients and delicious burgers, Tickle Pickle also makes a mean shake! Named after famous musicians, you can order anything from the Oreo Speedwagon to the James Brownie. To take it a step further, you can even order a vegan milkshake. It’ll be easy to ‘stay cool’ when you’re slurping on one of these bad boys in Northside!
Over The Rhine
Looking for a “mom and dad only” milkshake? Look no further. Every Sunday (but only on Sundays!) you can enjoy a nice boozy shake, crafted by the talented mixologists of Sundry and Vice, an apothecary-themed bar in Over The Rhine. Expect to see lots of different concoctions as Sundry and Vice will often theme these beautiful creations after pop culture references and historical figures.
