A New York Creamery is Making Wine Ice Cream
We already know that there are plenty of wine sorbets out there, but did you know you can also get wine-flavored ice cream? The delicious creation comes from the dairy cows over at the family-owned Mercer’s creamery in Boonville, New York and each pint, featuring a different grape varietal and flavor, contains five percent alcohol by volume. Which means that if you gorge yourself on enough ice cream, you could definitely get a good buzz going (that is, if you don’t get an ice cream headache first).
Each flavor sounds more tempting than the last: Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet, Peach White Zinfandel, Port, Red Raspberry Chardonnay, Riesling, Spice, and Strawberry Sparkling. Boonville, New York is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, but don’t panic: Mercer’s will ship your ice cream overnight to anywhere in the United States. And yes, since it is made with actual alcohol, you must be 21 years or older to purchase it.
Order a pint (or two, or three), by calling 1-866-MERCERS (637-2377). You can also find amazing wine ice cream at a store near you by checking Mercer’s list.
