Who doesn’t love ice cream? What if you could have a glass of the good stuff in every pint? With the weather being so hot across the country, ice cream is a natural craving you need to take care of. After searching for a creative ice cream recipe, we stumbled across a certain dairy and had to pinch ourselves because it fused two things we love.
Introducing Wine Ice Cream
This cold, delicious, frosty treat is produced by Mercer’s Dairy in New York. In 2006, nine farm families perfected the art of blending ice cream and wine. This creamy creation was the 2007 Winner of Best New Product “Small Bite Big Taste” Competition at The Great American Dessert Expo, and the 2008 Wine Ice Cream World Taste Champion, Awarded by the Masters of Taste of the Chefs In America Awards Foundation.
"At Mercer’s, we produce true wine ice cream. This is not just wine-flavored ice cream. It is a 12% butterfat and up to 5% alcohol by volume ice cream. In fact, the formula is trade-secreted by Mercer’s Dairy."
- Cherry Merlot
- Chocolate Cabernet
- Peach White Zinfandel
- Red Raspberry Chardonnay
Butter fat, milk solids for texture, appropriate levels of sugars, a stabilization system, and wine. Holy cow!
With 5 percent alcohol, you must be 21 years of age or older to enjoy.
