Throughout the month of August, Tribune writers are tasting our way through some of Utah's finest frozen confections including ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt and shave ice in an effort to beat the heat. Today's pick:
Mojito shaved ice • Fresh squeezed lime and mint flavors that make the Mojito cocktail a favorite summer drink have the same refreshing effect when added to shaved ice. There's no rum, of course, but it tastes just fine with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the bottom and some cream drizzled on top. Chile heads can ask for a dash of the fresh-made jalapeno syrup, which gives it a unique kick.
Yuki Artisan Shaved Ice • 1796 N. 950 West, Provo; in the Mountain West Burrito parking. Open Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. from May through September.
