Wine Ice Cream. Yeah, it's real. Have you heard of Mercer's Wine Ice Cream ?
I came across a press release for Mercer's Wine Ice Cream a few months ago and kept searching for it in local grocery stores and liquor stores. I couldn't find it anywhere! I finally emailed the company and inquired about where I could find Mercer's Wine Ice Cream - and it's not sold in Florida!
It's a travesty, I tell you!
I assume Mercer's Wine Ice Cream isn't sold in grocery stores because each pint contains 5 percent alcohol, and alcohol in ice cream is probably a lot harder to control going through the checkout line than an obvious bottle of wine.
For those of you lucky enough to live in a city where Mercer's Wine Ice Cream is sold, you have the following flavors to choose from:
Cherry Merlot - ice cream with Bordeaux cherries blended with a Merlot wine
Chocolate Cabernet - chocolate ice cream with bits of bittersweet chocolate blended with a Cabernet wine filled with dried cherry & cassis notes
Peach White Zinfandel - ice cream with fresh peaches blended with a White Zinfandel wine distinguished for its fruity undertones and pleasant finish Port: Mercer’s premium ice cream blended with an award-winning Ruby Port wine appreciated for its rich, heavily-bodied flavor
Red Raspberry Chardonnay - Mercer’s premium ice cream blended with raspberry sauce and a Chardonnay wine known for its delicate vanilla nose and buttery smooth taste
Riesling - Mercer’s premium ice cream blended with a Riesling wine prized for its fruity, crisp refreshing quality
Sounds awesome, right? I am so sad that they aren't selling Mercer's Wine Ice Cream in Florida yet!
