We’ve tried boozy popsicles ($18) at the New York Conrad hotel’s rooftop lounge, but now a Chicago luxury hotel’s upping the ante in the boozy frozen treat category.

The Langham’s retro-style ice-cream parlor – the Parlour at the Pavilion – is unveiling an ice-cream menu tomorrow (Wednesday, Sept. 24) that includes a variety of ice cream and alcoholic ice cream sundaes and floats. Pastry chef Scott Green concocted the desserts, which start at $16 and range up to $1,000. Examples of boozy sundaes.

  • The Manhattan: Cherry cola, bourbon, bourbon caramel and burgundy cherry ice cream, toasted almonds, amarena cherries and cherry sauce;
  • The Saturday Morning Cartoon: Rocky Road ice cream, four types of breakfast cereal and chocolate milk
  • The Victorian (for the headline making price of $1,000): Hennessey VSOP, Tahitian vanilla ice cream, Guittard Complexite 70% chocolate ice cream, 24 kt gold leaf and 24 k gold dust, caramelized golden peanuts, dark chocolate croquant, hot fudge, salted caramel. It’s topped with a hand-crafted chocolate crown and served in a Wedgwood Crystal Bowl that you can take home and a bottle of Dom Perignon 2003.

The parlor’s located on the second floor of the hotel. It’s open daily from 6 pm to 10 pm. The hotel says reservations are “highly recommended” (call 312-923-7710).
