Beer popsicles at The White Owl Brewery.
Yes, you read that right.
Looks like classics like chocolate, vanilla and mango are passe as Mumbai slowly wakes up to wacky flavours this summer. If you are in the city, beat the heat by dropping by at these ice-cream joints and restaurants to enjoy some cool scoops of ice-cream.
Craft Beer Popsicle @ The White Owl Brewery - Lower Parel
What if instead of just drinking your favourite beer, you could also have it as a popsicle in this heat? Sounds great, doesn't it? Drop by at this popular brewery at Lower Parel and enjoy a craft beer as a popsicle with some delicious butter cookie crumbs. Say what!?
Price: Rs. 195
Chilli Guava @ Icecreamskee - Juhu
As kids, freshly-cut guavas sprinkled with chilli powder and salt were the best thing to have ever happened. This ice-cream is everyone's childhood fantasy come true. Refresh those memories with this sweet and salty guava flavoured scoop this summer.
Price: Rs. 175 (small tub) & Rs. 350 (large tub)
Horlicks ice-ceam @ Icecream Bar - Kandivali
A glass of Horlicks with milk was exactly what we resented while growing up. Take a walk down the memory lane with this creamy Horlicks flavoured ice-cream while you try to take a break from the scathing heat. No more glasses of milk, just cold scoops of ice-cream we say.
Price: Rs. 80
Mr Jack fruit @ Ice cream Works - Ghatkopar, Thane, Andheri, Borivali
When you think of jackfruit, ice-cream is not what comes to mind, is it? Although not the most appetising fruit, jackfruit blends well as an ice-cream too. A unique flavour to begin with, it is creamy and every bit delicious.
Price: Rs. 55 (regular scoop)

Hummus and Lavash Ice-cream @ Papacream - Juhu, Andheri, Churchgate
Identical to the traditional hummus, which is otherwise enjoyed as a dip, this flavour is an ice-creamed twin of the traditional Middle Eastern dish. If you love ice-cream, but don't really have a sweet tooth, we found the perfect flavour for you.
Price: Rs. 265
Jasmine Rice @ Bina's Homemade Ice-cream - Chowpatty, Bandra, Andheri
Now that's a flavour worth trying, don't you think so? This delicate and fragrant flavour is not one to be found in most ice-cream joints. With a creamy, almost pudding-like flavour and a hint of sweetness, this flavour should be on top of your must-try list.
Price: Rs. 425 (per tub)
Paani Puri Ice-cream @ Apsara - Thane, Andheri, Bandra, Dadar
A sweet, tangy flavour with every bite is what you can expect while you dig into this unique flavour. A pale green ice-cream stuffed in puris and served like Mumbai's favourite street food, is what makes this ice-cream so irresistible.
Price: Rs. 60 (small scoop)
Cucumber Ice-cream @ Naturals - Powai, Kandivali, Andheri, Bandra, Marine Lines, Chembur, Vile Parle
This summer, stay cool as a cucumber with this new flavour at Naturals. If you love a chilled slice of cucumber, then this is your go-to flavour, although it might not be to everyone's palate. So, time to take 'em out of the salads and blend them into ice-creams.
Price: Rs. 55 (per cup/cone)
