A Girl’s Night In – A Wine & Ice Cream Cocktail

A Girl's Night In Wine Cocktail

A Girl’s Night In Wine Cocktail

This drink is perfect for a girl’s night in, whether you are just hanging out talking, watching movies or having a game night. It is based on the concept of an ice cream float, but with wine.

Background

Llano Estacado Winery is located in West Texas where they have many vineyards.  This particular wine is made with from the Moscato Bianco grape, and is crafted in a sweet fashion with low alcohol.  The unique tangerine-zest and key-lime aromatics come from the grape and a special process called “stopped-fermentation”. The Moscato Bianco grape is originally from Italy, so we call this wine cocktail a combination of the classic tradition of the Piedmonte region with a Texas accent.

Ingredients for One Serving

  • 1 Bottle of Llano Pink Moscato Wine (or any pink Moscato)
  • Strawberry soda
  • Vanilla Ice Cream (we like Bluebell Ice cream from Texas)

Recipe

With this cocktail we started by scooping two or three spoons of vanilla Bluebell ice cream into the wine glass. Then we added red Fanta strawberry soda. If you do not want to use Fanta, you could also try Big Red. After those ingredients are mixed, we top the drink off with the Moscato. Be careful while adding both the soda and wine because the ice cream makes them fizzle up and you do not want it to overflow.
