We are headed into a week of celebration! Valentine’s Day is on Wednesday, and on Tuesday we celebrate both Mardi Gras and Galentine’s Day. Wow. What a time to be alive, and what a cluster of occasions to indulge in some serious ice cream eating. We all know about Valentine’s Day and romantic love and spending time with sweethearts, but let’s talk about Galentine’s Day. This is a day when we get to celebrate our buds, our pals, the people who are with us through thick and thin--our truest friends. Galentine’s Day is traditionally celebrated with a boozy brunch with pals. Brunch is great, and so are mimosas, but we have another idea for you.
What if you and your best friends got together and shared a very special pint of ice cream? Just in time for these February holidays, we are rolling out a limited edition pint that we are very excited to share. This pint starts with a base of bourbon infused ice cream. We stir in Michigan sour cherries that we preserved over the summer, and finish it all off with chocolate shavings for a little decadence and texture, and we’re calling it, simply enough, Bourbon Cherry Chocolate. Share it with your gals, share it with your pals, eat it all alone, heck, even share it with someone you are in romantic partnership with.
Speaking of partnership, we’d like to talk a little bit about everyone’s favorite season, coming up in just a few short months--wedding season!!! Are you planning a wedding or do you know someone who is? Are you planning to propose or say yes this Valentine’s Day? Most importantly, do you know what you are serving for dessert at your wedding this summer? Or hey, are you having some other non-wedding event coming up where you would like to serve Leona’s? We are here for you.
Here’s the scoop: fill out this form on our website. We need at least two weeks lead time for events so that we can get logistics in line and make sure we have ice cream for all your guests. We know that each event is unique--location, freezer space, preferred flavors--so get in touch with us and we will work with you to get ice cream to your event.
