Some of the greatest advice I could give...Speaking up and asking for what you're worth. Knowing your worth and having the confidence to ask for what you're worth."
When local ingredients, handcrafted recipes, and a good time come together, you get Prohibition Creamery, the innovative creation of this week’s Dish’n Dames feature, Laura Aidan.
Laura’s ice cream journey began in her Austin kitchen, inspired by the nostalgia of her childhood. She spent a ton of time baking alongside her mom as a young child, making sweet treats, especially ice cream, a sweet memory.
Her background includes 15+ years in science and technology, making her instantly fall in love with the science behind ice cream making. To feed that curiosity, Laura attended Penn State University’s 125-years old ice cream program to discover as many nuances as she could about ice cream. Once mastered, she thought she’d take ice cream to a new level.
Laura spent several years mastering the craft of infusing her favorite spirits into delicious ice cream flavors. During that time, she recalled one of her first jobs in high school and college working for two women-owned family catering companies and how that taste of operating a small food business helped her develop a love of the experience of bringing a smile to people’s faces through food.
In 2016, her delectable dreams came together when she opened Prohibition Creamery. By combining her two favorite indulgences — alcohol and ice cream — into deliciously intoxicating delights, she’d created her own ice cream heaven that everyone could enjoy.
Prohibition Creamery offers boozy ice cream, boozy milkshakes, sundaes, and extravagant tasting flights, an ultimate indulgence. And, to further elevate the experience and allow people to be in good spirits with or without ice cream, they also serve craft cocktails, wine, and beer.
Laura Aiden says, “I'm proud to have created one of the first ice cream spirits brands. I constantly strive to push the boundaries of creativity and to surprise and please our customers.”
