Tipsy Scoop 1 Bars Ice Cream Kips Bay Nomad

Attention to those who are over twenty-one - Tipsy Scoop has found a winning combination using two of everyone's favorite indulgences: ice cream and alcohol. The “barlour” is the creation of young ice cream aficionado Melissa Tavvs, who has the frozen dessert running through her blood. Her great grandfather was known for bringing gelato from Italy, his home country, to Scotland. He was also a member of the Ice Cream Alliance. In addition to this legacy, Melissa has a background in wine and spirits. Why not bring the two together?

Growing up in the industry, Melissa learned that alcohol is sometimes used to soften ice cream, and thought that it might be fun to combine her personal passion with her family’s and make an ice cream product with an significant alcohol content. After perfecting the freezing process and secret recipe, Tipsy Scoop was born. Each of the brand's flavors has a 5% alcohol content.

The company began to take shape in 2013 in the Hot Bread Kitchen commercial space in Harlem, largely focusing on small batch production and catering for groups like Louis Vuitton and Bloomingdales. Their storefront opened in May of 2017 and has been met with tremendous buzz and success. The shop often has a line out the door. The charming shop is complete with exposed brick and neon signs and is a delightful addition to the quiet neighborhood where Melissa, herself, lives.

Manhattan Sideways sampled numerous flavors including our favorite, dark chocolate whiskey with salted caramel. In addition, we enjoyed the vanilla bean bourbon, maple bacon bourbon, and chocolate stout and pretzel. We found the mango margarita and strawberry white sangria sorbets to be perfect for the hot summer day on which we stopped in, and we were pleased to learn that all of the Tipsy Scoop flavors are available by the pint and in customizable cakes.
