98. Whiskey Cream Gelato from Marrazo That's Amore

Marrazo That's Amore will have you feeling quite amorous with their unique gelato concoction featuring a hefty dose of whiskey flavor. The flavor's sweet, creamy gelato base is amped up with ribbons of ooey-gooey caramel and a sinful dose of whiskey.
Although this North Valley joint has all of the traditional Italian gelato flavors, the whiskey gelato wins points for creativity and decadence. Like a rum cake, this spiked confection combines all of the best parts of a night cap with all of the best parts of dessert, making it near irresistible for booze enthusiasts and gelato lovers alike.
However, That's Amore isn't all about the gelato. The Italian bakery also features classics like cannolis, profiteroles, tiramisu, and even zodiac-inspired cakes. Though, with temps heating up, we see ourselves sticking to the gelato case for a while.
