1 - We Scream for Ice Cream
Red Shiso, Pisco Sour and Green-Apple Wasabi sorbets at Sushi Samba

July happens to be National Ice Cream Month. To celebrate we picked three of our favorite takes on the traditional frozen treat. Grab a spoon…

Pisco Sour Sorbet at Sushi Samba
Grey Goose popsicles
are all the rage at parties, but at end of a meal we love that same adult twist found in the Pisco Sour sorbet at Sushi Samba. Although it usually comes with two other flavors, we suggest asking for a triple shot. “I use three different juices: lemon, lime and yuzu,” explains pastry chef Michelle Duran. “The lemon and lime juices are hand-squeezed in this process, which takes a little bit longer but I find it rears a better result. I then add the pisco right before each spin. [Then] there is a distinct flavor of the pisco throughout.” 600 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach 305-987-8885

Nitro Ice Cream at Haven
Ice cream gets a dollop of sophistication and a blast of nitrogen at Haven. Sub-zero Nitro Ice Cream— made to order with fruit, nut and candy mix-ins—comes in two flavors a day that change daily. We favor Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cuatro Leches (Guava Pastry is also popular). Even better? Thanks to Haven’s 5 AM last call and one-shot servings, the treat is a perfect late-night guilty pleasure. 1237 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305-987-8885

Cake N’ Shake at Sweetness Bakeshop or SugarRush food truck
Ice cream and cake have been friends for a long time, but the team behind Sweetness and SugarRush has sweetened the partnership by throwing both into a blender for Cake N’ Shakes. On the truck diners have the option of vanilla or chocolate ice cream blended with red velvet, vanilla or chocolate cake. The bake shop offers eight rotating flavors of ice cream and any cake flavor, along with mix-ins like salted caramel or candy. Go over the top with the brownie shakes and the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time) cookie shakes. Sweetness, 9549 SW 72 St., 305-271-7791
