Red Wine Ice Cream Floats

A yummy wine infused adult twist on an iconic childhood dessert.


  • maraschino cherries
  • pint of vanilla ice cream
  • sparkling red wine chilled


  • Let the ice cream soften. Scoop several generous scoops of ice cream up. About three per glass. Return the container to the freezer and allow the scoops to firm up.
  • Add about 3-4 maraschino cherries to the bottom of a large glass.
  • Add two large scoops of the ice cream to the glass. Top the ice cream with 3 more cherries.
  • Fill the glass up with red wine about an inch from the top. Stick a straw in the drink and top with another scoop of ice cream.
  • If you want a bit of fun color, sprinkle with red sugar sprinkles.
  • Serve immediately.
