Ample Hills Creamery (Brooklyn, New York)

Named for a line of poetry by Brooklyn denizen Walt Whitman, the Ample Hills retail store has been called Brooklyn's "most beloved ice cream shop" by the New York Times T Magazine. The company handcrafts small-batch ice cream from fresh, natural ingredients brought down from upstate farms. There's a rotating roster of 16 incredibly delicious flavors such as Salted Crack Caramel, Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, and, of course, Leaves of Grass – a mojito sorbet with organic lime juice, fresh mint, and a splash or two of rum.
