Jalapeno Avocado, Horchata and Mango Margarita at Sweet Republic for Cinco de Mayo

Sweet Republic ice cream shop in Scottsdale is celebrating Cinco de Mayo in style, with a trio of flavors that sound a whole lot better than a Corona Light.

Check out the sweet descriptions -- and where to find the ice cream -- after the jump. 


Jalapeno Avocado: Creamy, smooth avocado with a spicy kiss of jalapeno pepper.

Horchata: Traditional cinnamon spiced rice drink, frozen, not stirred.

Mango Margarita Sorbet: A full flavor blend of fresh mango and lime with a splash of tequila.

You can find these flavors at Sweet Republic, natch, and also at Canteen in Tempe and El Hefe in Old Town Scottsdale. 

This just in: Crave's Spicy Mexican Chocolate ice cream will be delivered tomorrow morning to the Phoenix Urban Market.
