Meet The Wine Ice Cream Float—The Dessert Of Our Dreams

Switch up your virtual happy hour!

When it comes to sweet treats, ice cream sundaes and root beer floats are delicious, but you know what would make them even more amazing? Adding some booze. Luckily, such a magical dessert does exist, and it’s better than we could have ever imagined.

Enter the wine ice cream floats: they’re made with vanilla ice cream, a bottle of fruity red wine, sparkling water, and maraschino cherries, and they’re everything you could ever want on a hot summer’s day.

Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? Here’s how you can make it yourself using a recipe from Club W:

1. Begin by popping a tall glass into the freezer to keep the ice cream cool once it’s inside.

2. Fill the glass up 2/3 of the way with vanilla ice cream.

3. Pour over equal parts wine to equal parts sparkling water.

4. Top with a couple maraschino cherries.

Ice cream floats will never be the same!
