Wine Ice Cream in New Hampshire: This is not a joke

Just when we thought we couldn’t possibly love ice cream any more than we already do, along comes one of the century’s greatest creations – wine ice cream.

Having received a tip about this novel item, I headed to the Korner Kupboard (394 N. State Street, Concord, NH, phone 603-224-3431) to purchase this frozen concoction made by Mercer’s based in Boonville, NY. There I found the pints in a variety of flavors including Riesling, Peach White Zinfandel, Port, Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet, and Red Raspberry Chardonnay. I quickly grabbed a Riesling and a Peach White Zin and raced home to conduct a taste test.

My wife didn’t believe me when I presented her with these gifts but soon was as pleased as I was to learn of the culinary delight!

We were both very happy with the taste as well as the creamy texture. NOTE: this ice cream is for adults only. Each pint contains 5% alcohol.

For those of you that aren’t fortunate to live near a store that carries Mercer’s wine ice cream, don’t despair! You can download an order form on their website and they will deliver it to your home. Cheers!
