Flavors of Mexico a la Mode: Ice Cream Festival

On July 31st ­through August 24th, Rosa Mexicano will keep things cool with their 12th annual Ice Cream Festival, featuring Flavors of Mexico a la Mode, desserts inspired by classic savory dishes such as guacamole, tamales and empanadas; paired with handmade ice creams infused with Mexican flavors ranging from sweet corn-caramel to chili-spiced chocolate.
