Brilliant-discovery alert: Two of the world's greatest gifts have officially united to forever change our lives. Not to be too dramatic or anything…but wine-infused ice cream has arrived in NYC, and we’re all better for it.
Whichever varietal you prefer, there’s a scoop to please most palates: chocolate Cabernet, cherry Merlot, port, Riesling and red-raspberry Chardonnay. No swirling, sniffing or snooty discussions of undertones here--just good old-fashioned deliciousness by the spoonful. But make no mistake: The ice cream isn’t just wine-flavored. With an alcohol content of 5 percent, this dessert requires proper ID.
If you’re strolling through Williamsburg, stop in for a taste. Or make a trip to pick up a carton or 12 ($11 each). You’re sure to be the world’s greatest hostess, dinner-party guest, best friend, date-for-one…or all of the above.
