Made with sweet dessert wine, fresh fruit, cream, sugar and a vanilla bean it’s easily whipped together the night before serving. Perfect for a girl’s night in, a stay-in date night, or for a cozy summer night around a bonfire.
Hellllllloooo Friday. What took you so long to get here?
I’m incredibly excited to start my weekend because I have plans for tonight. Great plans. Plans to sit down with my husband and some wine and ice cream. Err, some wine ice cream. Wine, and ice cream. Together. <3
Tasty, creamy, vanilla ice cream flavored with fresh blackberries and infused with the greatest of all wines–Moscato.
I have a pretty small range of wines I enjoy drinking. For me it’s go sweet and fruity or go home. I do not like dry wines (and I kinda think you have to in order to be considered a true wine aficionado) but I love Moscato and I have a cabinet full of fruit flavored wines (mango, peach, blackberry, you name it).
Zach and I recently found a blackberry wine from a local vineyard that we LOVE, and the saleswoman recommended that we pour a little bit of it over ice cream.
The saleswoman was clearly a genius and a woman after my own palate, and she got me to thinking about pairing ice cream and wines. Then I decided to step things up a notch by combining wine and cream and making ice cream out of wine. And fruit of course (like I said, sweet and fruity or go home).
This Moscato Blackberry Vanilla Ice Cream is so beautifully simple and refreshing. It’s a blend of the best flavors of sweet summertime in a smooth, creamy ice cream.
You need this in your Friday night… now.
Oh, and in case you need a little more incentive to make this ice cream, you should know that May 9th is National Moscato Day. That’s 8 days from now. Now you have wine ice cream plans. You’re welcome 😉
