You stocked up on beer ice cream so you can serve them to guests during the holidays. Unfortunately, it turns out you consume beer ice cream the same way you consume beer: voraciously. Now that you’ve thought about it, maybe beer ice cream isn’t the classiest fare to serve this Christmas. Maybe your guests will be able to appreciate Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream much better.
In a head to head battle, wine will always come out classier than beer. I mean, it comes in a fancy bottle and everything. Plus, you drink it from a glass with a stem while you drink beer on a burly stein with a handle. Yeah, wine it is.
Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream is erstwhile regular ice cream loaded with a respectable dose of alcohol. Containing 5% alcohol by volume, it’s actually a pretty legit way to get your Christmas buzz. Flavors include Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet, Red Raspberry Chardonnay, Port, Riesling and Peach White Zinfandel. See, even the names sound classier than ice cream drizzled with beer.
Since it tastes like regular ice cream (with a hint of that wine flavor, of course), you’ll probably down this faster than regular wine. That means, a bigger buzz and, since you’re consuming a big load of sugar and alcohol, a bigger grin all throughout the holidays.
Want a batch for Christmas (or, let’s be honest, a lonely Friday night)? Mercer’s Dairy ships their Wine Ice Cream anywhere in the US overnight on dry ice. Price is $6.99 per pint.
