The best frozen treats in Philly, from a pie milkshake to beer by the scoop

What's cooler than being cool? Cooling off with five of Philly's most freaky-freezy treats, from grown-up Little Baby's to smoky bacon shakes, each of them guaranteed to break the heat and make you work up a sweat... when you hit the gym the next day

Vanilla Bean Brownie Sandwich at Morgan's Pier 221 N Columbia Blvd; 215.279.7134 Even cooler than chilling with a liquid nitrogen cheeseburger under the Ben Franklin are the pier garden's melt-in-your-mouth semifreddo cream-wiches smooshed between the chef's family recipe fudge brownies and cut thinner than you'll be when you're done with them

Frozen Mint Julep at Khyber Pass 56 S 2nd St; 215.238.5888 Sure, a tin cup of whiskey on crushed ice is pretty cool, but a tall glass of brown-spiked slushie is even cooler. Old City Southern pub Khyber Pass blends bourbon, mint simple syrup, and lime juice into this frozen mint julep perfect for easing into a hot day and an even hotter Tobasco-ed fried green tomato BLT

Bourbon Butterscotch Pie Milkshake at Magpie 1622 South St; 267.519.2904 Proving whiskey always tastes better from a Mason jar, Magpie's butterscotch pie shake blends liquid Kentucky brown into a pie before churning a booze-custardy wedge into 10oz of Bassett's ice cream

Bacon-Peanut Butter Booze Shake at PYT 1050 N Hancock St; 215.964.9009 You can't order the Piazza burger joint's Krispy Kreme Sliders a la mode (yet?), but you can wash them down with a meaty dinner-dessert-cocktail shake like this bacon-peanut butter jawn, blending smoked belly with your two favorite vanillas: ice cream and vodka

Yards Chocolate Love Stout Pomegranate at Little Baby's Ice Cream 2311 Frankford Ave; 267.687.8567 Creamily blending your bottle shop go-to with your favorite fruit from ancient Greek mythology, Fishtown frozen treatery LBIC's Yards Chocolate Love Stout Pomegranate's a grown-up scoop guaranteed to make a grown man cry (if he drops it on the sidewalk).
