What is it about being on vacation that makes one think they MUST have copious amounts of dessert? My final food-find of my trip to Denver is Gelazzi, an authentic gelato shop with an innovative twist: they also serve alcohol.
Not just any mixed drink can be had here. They serve two types of mixed drinks - one that’s creamy and made with chocolate (or other flavors) gelato, and another that’s fruity and made with one of their fruit sorbets.
I opted for a chocolate/hazelnut flavor in a waffle cone (hey, I was on vacation!). The service was beyond friendly, offering my husband and I a tiny taste of the two varieties of martini - both were delicious. They also let us know that all of the gelato and sorbet is freshly made in-house.
Gelazzi is located in Downtown Denver in Larimer Square at 1411 Larimer St, Denver, CO 80202
They also have an additional location in Fort Collins, and according to their website, have more locations to come.
Here’s a suggestion: Los Angeles!
