WINE ICE CREAM – A PERFECT PAIRING
Ben & Jerry’s watch out. There’s a hot new flavor out there that people can’t get enough of: Wine Ice Cream. Made by Mercer’s Dairy in upstate New York, the award-winning ice cream is available in several flavors that combine traditional ice cream favorites with popular wine varietals. All the wines used are from New York. There are four flavors: Riesling, Red Raspberry Chardonnay, Cherry Merlot, and Chocolate Cabernet. As these treats contain actual wine (5%ABV), customers must be 21 to purchase the ice cream. Retailing for about $8 a pint, the sweet treats aren’t cheap but rave reviews would indicate they’re worth it. And for the serious ice cream and wine fan, they come with tasting notes as well.
