Although there is something inherently child-like about shaved ice, the Whiskey-flavored shaved ice served at Kyoto's Soradoko restaurant is distinctly for adults. The refreshing summer dessert is usually made with sweet fruit flavors from berries, melon and citrus, but since the restaurant deals with a lot of whiskey on a regular basis, it decided to get a little bit creative.

The Whiskey-flavored shaved ice is made from either Suntory’s Yamazaki or Shirasu whiskey brands and the chilled dessert is served to restaurant patrons with a sweet syrup and soda water. If going for a cup of shaved ice as an adult this summer feels a little childish to you, this is a delicious way to beat the heat and indulge in something that is both refreshing, grown-up and super nostalgic.
