Prohibition Creamery (1407 E. 7TH Street), an artisanal and all-natural alcoholic ice cream shop that combines two favorite indulgences – alcohol and ice cream – into handcrafted ice creams with attitude, is pleased to announce it opens today July 19 in Austin, Texas. To further elevate the experience, Prohibition Creamery also serves craft cocktails, wine and beer.
Founded by Laura Aidan, Prohibition Creamery’s artisanal and all-natural ice creams are created entirely from scratch in-house, by hand, utilizing old-fashioned methods to maximize deliciousness. It is a labor-intensive process, but allows control of the source and quality of each ingredient, enabling Laura to get really creative with flavors!

Inspired by classic cocktails, the menu includes a Vanilla Bean Daiquiri, Tamarind Whiskey Sour, Japanese Cocktail, French 77 1⁄2 and more.
In addition to cocktails, Prohibition Creamery’s bar program also includes a thoughtful wine list that pairs with the ice creams and sorbets and a beer list that emphasizes local breweries including Adelbert’s and Austin Beerworks.

The separate seating room area can be reserved for private events, as well as the entire bungalow.
About Laura Aidan, founder of Prohibition Creamery
Laura was introduced to ice cream making in her kitchen in Austin, Texas where she was inspired by the nostalgia of her childhood years spent baking with her mom. Perhaps due to her background in science and technology Laura was excited by the chemistry and technical complexities of ice cream making. She attended Penn State University’s renowned ice cream program in order to learn everything she could about how to make the best possible frozen treats. Laura spent the last several years crafting dozens of amazing recipes and perfecting the process of infusing spirits into ice cream.
Recently, InFluential Magazine collaborated with Jameson Irish Whiskey to host InFluential Presents The House of Jameson. The special soiree unfolded at the luxurious Brass House in vibrant downtown Austin, where the city’s most influential experienced a memorable evening filled with surprises, finely organized by BA Snyder of Veritas Group Austin.
Jameson Irish Whiskey was the star of the evening, offering exquisite whiskey tastings along with fascinating details highlighting their array of spirits. An original cocktail, the InFluential Manhattan (a twist on the traditional Manhattan) greeted guests upon their arrival. Serenading the lively guests in the modern, cosmopolitan setting was the spectacular Courtney Santana whose selections of jazz and modern standards perfectly complemented the evening.
Laurence Cobblestone, Community Manager for Jameson Irish Whiskey, led guests through an exclusive educational tasting of Jameson’s three most popular spirits including Jameson Black Barrel. Accompanying the variety of drinks was a specially selected menu of appetizers and ice cream from Laura Aidan, owner of Prohibition Creamery, made fresh from gluten-free ingredients and Jameson Irish Whiskey of course.
Nationally-acclaimed artist Marlene Jorge was on hand to paint a custom mural to be given away to a fortunate guest during the evening. For those who needed a beautification touch-up, Karissa Burns from Wet Canvas Nail & Beauty Bar provided complimentary Mini Manicures. The table was abuzz with guests flocking to be pampered!
Throughout the delightful evening, custom gifts from Denise Bell Skin Care, Piranha Killer Sushi, Lake Travis Zip Line Adventures and Wet Canvas Nail & Beauty Bar were presented to guests. As the evening concluded, everyone received a gift bag filled with wonderful prizes exclusively chosen and presented by InFluential Magazine. The event proved once again that an evening filled with surprises is the best kind of evening for InFluentials in Austin.
Thank you to all of our special guests and sponsors who made the evening a great success.
