Red wine, Cointreau, and Blackberries add a burst of flavor to this delicious Sangria Ice Cream!
Guys, I’m celebrating my 29th birthday and all I really want is a freezer stocked with SANGRIA ICE CREAM. Yep. That’s happening.
It’s a beautiful thing when wine and ice cream can come together so seamlessly.
Right now my property is absolutely covered in my very favorite invasive species: blackberries!
If I could only get bottles of red wine to grow in the garden, I’d be all set!
This time of year I make sure to always keep my ice cream maker bowl in the freezer so it is ready to go when I need ice cream. For this recipe, I made a custard-style base, then whipped up a red-wine-blackberry-syrup while the base was chilling in the fridge.
I saved some of the ice cream in little mason jars for future single-serving-emergencies, but most of it I just scooped into cones and enjoyed on the back porch.
Alcohol really is a wonderful thing to add to ice cream, for more reasons than one.
I think it’s obvious by now that I just like the taste of wine and most other libations, but it’s also a perfect pair with ice cream because the alcohol helps keep the ice cream soft. Just like the bottle of vodka in my freezer, this ice cream doesn’t freeze solid (which makes it super easy to scoop!).
Okay, I’m off to go enjoy my birthday week. I’m going skydiving tomorrow!! Assuming I survive, I’ll be back next week with new recipes.
