Dominique Ansel Kitchen has introduced a sweet treat for summer, a new cold brew ice cream flavor. The Cronut inventor’s latest culinary creation will be served with an anise biscotti and cocoa powder-dusted milk foam from now until the end of June.
The La Colombe cold brew ice cream is made during a meticulous two-day process. As opposed to some cold brew flavors which are bitter, this is nothing but rich and sweet.
“We take our housemade milk base and infuse the coffee flavor into the milk overnight,” Ansel told Grub Street. “It takes another night to strain it, and then we mix it with our base and let it rest for 12 hours.”
The cold brew flavor will cost $7.25 with all the fixings, all throughout May and June. After that, the Kitchen will switch to a new flavor, white-peach ice cream with salted pistachios and lavender honey. In August, it will switch again to dark-chocolate olive-oil soft serve with fig agrodolce and sea salt.
If the cold brew flavor is a hit, Dominique Ansel may choose to bring it back for another run in September.
