We cant say enough great things about Cocktail Creamery. The owners and staff are wonderful, kind people and the ice cream is the best I have ever had. They have 89 awesome unique flavors of their boozy ice cream to choose from, and a selection of non-alcoholic infused flavors. Every time we have gone here we are treated like family and greeted with a warm welcome. This is our favorite and go-to ice cream place and we bring our friends and family here every time they visit!

The nicest couple ever owns this ice cream. I love the small town vibe of the place and the authentic way they care about each customer's experience. The ice cream flavors are so carefully curated and taste fantastic. I love coming here.

Chocolate smothered strawberry ice cream and delicious!! A definite favorite. Highly recommend!

*****

This place is clearly a labor of love. They have so many delicious flavors and they have objectively great smooth delicious ice cream. Here's what I did and recommend anybody do: Sample what sounds interesting then buy an unexpected, but absolutely delicious combo of flavors. Then smile on your way out because you are so good at flavor.

Our Sister's Group (SIS) LOVED THE COCKTAILS!!

*****

Awesome hidden gem!! The owners are awesome and friendly! The ice creams are AMAZING!!! You should DEFINITELY try!!

*****

This place is adorable!! Super family friendly even though almost all of their ice cream has alcohol in it! Sharon helped us and was so so kind.
We got a flight which is perfect for 2 people to share! Its like $12 and you get 4 flavors! (Comparable to ordering 2 smalls).

Mango margarita: sharp, sweet but not too sweet, strong mango flavor, not watery!! (This is hard to do in a sorbet!) Very smooth, little tang at the end. Delicious!

Moscow mule: not our favorite! STRONG ginger taste, hard to follow the sweet mango marg for sure. Great for people who dont like sweet! Tongue on fire like a shot of wheatgrass or green juice. We didnt finish it hahaha (not bad just should have ordered something else.)

Strawberry Cheesecake: YUM! So creamy!!!! So thick. Light, not too sweet, not too fruity, no alcohol taste. This was by far our favorite!

Chocolate Hazelnut: not too obvious, hints of Nutella? No alcohol taste! Loved the nutty chunks!

Overall: 10/10. Prices, vibes, food!!

Love this place! The owners are fantastic

Found this nice little hidden gem on yelp looking for dessert place open late. Me and my fiance both tried the boozy flight. The flavors and the alcohol inside of them was delicious not to strong. I strongly suggest anyone visiting Mckinney or living Mckinney try this hidden gem tucked inside the Pantry Restaurant.

Incredible selection of tasty adult ice cream. Great idea and execution.

So amazing. Adult ice cream shop!! Try blueberry cheesecake or Salted Carmel.

*****

Unique and interesting flavor combinations. Original concept creamy.

*****

This is such a unique icecream shop with amazing decor. They have so many choices of infused homemade alcohol. The owners were there and super nice! I have told all my friends that they must stop in next time they are in Mckinney.

*****

Walked in for the first time last weekend because my daughter wanted ice cream & I'm so glad I walked in this place because my goodness the ice cream was DELICIOUS They give you free tasting of whatever ice cream you want to try & to be honest I just wanted all it was literally THAT good!! I am not a fan of ice cream but that day I became one for sure The staff was just extremely nice! DEFINITELY recommend you to check it out

*****

Best ice cream in the area. The Mango habanero and the killer vaniller.

*****

A little expensive but it's supporting a local business

*****

A bit pricey for the portions but the ice cream is good. The staff was helpful even though they were very busy. Enjoyed it. Will be back.

*****

Fantastic! We went there to try the alcohol infused ice cream and were extremely pleasantly surprised at the the overall quality of the ice cream as well. Very good.

*****

Amazing icecream. So many flavors, every one of the 8 we tried was fantastic. The flights are a great way to try a bunch with friends. Great atmosphere, friendly service. Will be back for sure to try more.

*****

Great place for relaxing and enjoying the alcohol infused ice cream! Loved, loved the ice cream flavors and want to come back to have them all. This is a great addition to Historic Downtown McKinney.

*****

They have the BEST ice cream! The owners are so incredibly sweet and their flavors they come up with are so unique and delicious! I will be telling everyone about them!

*****

A super cute and cozy little place on the square that sells delicious boozy ice cream! They have a variety of flavors (check out their website), each skillfully crafted with a fitting liquor. The alcohol helps keep the sweet richness in check and gives it a nice adult-y ice cream flavor without it being too over-the-top. The woodlands theme decor is also cute and inviting. Its a part of the Red Canoe restaurant that serves breakfast-type foods and coffee.

*****

This is a MUST HAVE! The owners are awesome, they let us sample a new recipe. Some of the richest ice cream with the best ingredients., which you can definitely tell. They do offer non- alcoholic ice cream as well. Put this place on your list!!

*****

In from out of town and we were looking for some ice cream. So glad we gave this a try. These folks are doing it right! The ice cream is very smooth, creamy and delicious! Staff are super friendly and let us sample many of the flavors. Great work!!

*****

This ice cream is one of the best treats Ive ever had! Its so smooth and flavorful that it beats most on its own.. the booze puts it over the top. Had a chance to meet the owners and they are fantastic people! Will certainly be back and bringing others with us!

*****

Oh my! So goid

*****

There are very few words that can describe the sensation my mouth encountered after trying their ice cream this evening. I was able to taste every ice cream and was then left to make the hardest decision of the day... which one?Fortunately there are no wrong answers..
TRUST ME!

I made the decision of getting the ghost of cinnamon past. Cant tell you anymore... thats for you to find out!

This gem is definitely worth looking into if you are trying to find a quality dessert place with friendly management.

*****

Incredible ice cream. Great concept. Great service. What else is there?

*****

All I can say is WOW.. not just for the product but also to the genius that is the creator.

*****

Fantastic ice cream place! Ted is a master craftsman when it comes to ice cream. There isn't a flavor of his that I've tried and not liked.

*****

Amazing ice cream! The owners rock too! Our new date night go to!

*****

My wife and I absolutely loved the ice cream and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and discussion with the owners. We will 100% be back.

*****

What a discovery! Had the ice cream sundae, vanilla ice cream with a brownie on the bottoms and stiff whipped cream on top! It is, without a scintilla of doubt, the best sundae I have had in decades! People talk about when a food tastes so good, it was sinful. Naw, every sweet mouthful I had, was like sweet manna from heaven! I cant truly express just how delicious this was. Thank you Ted, for making our drop in delightful. Your frozen creation was beyond words good!!!

*****

6 STARS!!!!! Exquisitely delicious describes the ice cream at Cocktail Creamery. Ted has developed amazing flavors that compliment his decadent ice cream creations. Add booze and the flavors explode in your mouth. It's literally THE best ice cream I have ever tasted. Ask Sharyn to make you a milkshake....yes, I said Milkshake!!! They make those too WITH the delicious ice cream!!!!! Did someone say donuts?? They are locating inside the Donut Kitchen in downtown McKinney so another creation they offer is donut sundaes. Holy Moly! Ted and Sharyn are probably the nicest people you could ever meet. They fill the place with great music and conversation. You will feel like you've made some new friends and/or like they've been your friends forever. Go see them! You can literally try any and all flavors. My go to flavors are the Velvet Hammer (Red Velvet Baileys and whipped cream vodka) and Salted Butter Caramel Crazy but I highly recommend any flavor they offer.

*****

Discovered this place while walking around downtown McKinney on a Friday evening. The place is on the outskirts of the square and it doesn't look like an ice cream place from the outside. At first I thought they only sold donuts, but the owner explained that they also sold homemade ice cream with booze (he also has a few non-boozy flavors). He was super nice and let us try as many flavors as we wanted. I liked all the flavors we sampled, but my favorite was cookies and booze which is a new flavor. The alcohol isn't overwhelming and leaves a nice taste in your mouth. The ice cream reminds me of the kind you get at the old fashion parlor type places where it's made with real cream, rich and decadent. It is a little more expensive than regular ice cream but I think it's totally worth it because you're paying for the alcohol and quality ingredients. All of the ice cream was kept covered in little tubs and didn't see any ice formation anywhere. The place is kept clean and decor is nice. They have live music on Fridays and would be a cute place to hang out at night. Would definitely recommend.

*****

Go here now! This ice cream is amazing!! There is a lot of thought and effort put into the making of these magical flavors....did I mention they have booze in them? They do. They have vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry for non-alcoholic flavors....but the boozy flavors are the real reason to go. They're in the Donut Kitchen....so I had to get one of those too. They also have live music. Save room fro dessert next time you're in the square, it's totally worth it.

*****

Located in the same space as Donut Kitchen. Great ice cream and great service! The liquor in the ice cream doesn't overpower any flavors, it's perfectly complementary.

Non-alcoholic ice cream is also available for those who would like it.

*****

Our new FAVORITE dessert stop! A wonderful addition to old downtown McKinney. The alcohol infused handmade ice cream is decadent and delicious. The owner Ted is a wonderful host, explaining what goes into each of his creatively-named flavors and encouraging you to sample them. A must go if you're close to downtown McKinney!

*****

Great place!! If your in the area this is a must do, dont miss out.Do yourself a favor and check it out you will not be disappointed.

*****

ALL good.

*****

Awesome

*****

Sooo good! got to try about 6 different flavors, they were all delicious. This will be a place we frequent often for a good homemade treat. Owners are super nice too!

*****

Went here yesterday and the ice cream was so good! Very great customer service and my wife and I really enjoyed the banana and vanilla ice cream! We definitely will be back!

*****

Delicious ice cream and sherbet!! Owners are extremely friendly and they offer free samples to help you chose between their many custom flavors.

*****

This place is amazing! Stop in for some adult beverage ice cream and say hi to the owners. They are awesome

*****

Best.Ice.Cream.Ever.

*****

Best discovery in McKinney Square. Love the vibe of this place, which in inside another restaurant, and LOVE the flavors. They were gracious in allowing us to sample many. Settled on a double chocolate and it was heaven. Will definitely be going each time we walk around the square and hope you will also support this family business too!

*****

Great little ice-cream shop with soooo many flavors!! All of them made right there! We had the almond joyfully delicious and the double dark chocolate (as a milkshake). Both were excellent!! If you're in the McKinney square you have to check it out!!

*****

Amazing, great service and super patient with customers.

*****

Very creamy yummy ice cream. And I was thrilled to hear about how the business started and how they make their ice cream. I was almost hesitant because I cannot drink alcohol, but I adored the creamy strawberry and the delicious high quality Italian strawberry topping. It was a very personal experience

*****

My newest obsession! Salted butter caramel crazy!

*****

Exactly how you would expect a "mom and pop" establishment to be! Owners and staff were extremely helpful and actually took the time to ensure that you had the best experience possible. I left there feeling as if I had been a patron for years!

There is definitely something for everyone, from just a hint of alcohol to flavors that pack a punch! I tried the Pina Colada, Strawberry (punch-packer), Salted Caramel, and Maple Baconater (another punch-packer). Pina Colada and Salted Caramel were OUT OF THIS WORLD!! By far my favorites, but I am not really an alcohol consumer, so the slight hints of alcohol in these flavors were right up my alley.

I highly recommend this one-of-a-kind find!!

*****

Simply the best will be back again

*****

Over the top, family owned, family oriented ice cream inventors. All ingredients are the best available. I promise that you have never had it like this before. It is addicting! Catch the music EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT. Remember that it is located inside the great Pantry restaurant in downtown McKinney. It is a great place to bring a date or the entire family. Love it!!

*****

Loved this place!!!! Love the owners, the booze, the ice cream, everything! Well be back!

*****

The cutest find ever! We had the Salted Butter Caramel Crazy in a waffle cup with peanut butter cups and the Mint Chocolate Cookie Monster in a chocolate waffle cup and all I can say is omg. Incredibly delicious! The staff is so nice and the restaurant is super cute. We will definitely be back!

*****

Pure deliciousness, as always!

*****

Amazing adult Gourmet ice cream! Awesome! A must try and worth the trip to downtown McKinney, TX!!!

*****

So many flavors to choose from and every one more delicious than the last! Friendly, knowledgeable staff and cozy atmosphere. We can't wait to be back!
