Cantine Italian Cafe & Bar (1100 S. Lamar Blvd. Suite 2115, cantineaustin.com) Italians, it seems, have just as much of a sweet tooth as we do. The Italian eatery in the Lamar Union development owned by longtime Austin restaurateurs Emmett and Lisa Fox tries to remain as authentic to the Mediterranean flavors of the European country as possible, a mission that extends to the drinks. One of the two cocktails with homemade soft serve ice cream as the base is the Sgroppino, a refreshing summer drink hailing from Venice and featuring limoncello, vodka, cava and creamy soft serve, rather than the traditional lemon sorbet. “It’s like a boozy ice cream float, sipped through a straw,” Cantine’s bar manager Adrian Braun says. Sweeten the deal with … the lemon semifreddo, with raspberry broth and basil, on Cantine’s dessert menu. The Foxes, who discovered it during time abroad, “have been noticing more desserts with booze, like limoncello or grappa, poured over them in Italy, so we’ve replicated that,” Emmett Fox says. If you choose to get the half-ounce of the lemon liqueur on top, you’ll find it’s the perfect cap on a dessert that covers sweet, tart and herbal flavors all in one.
