Red Wine Ice Cream Floats

(From: Mind Over Batter)

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

Optional – Line an aluminum loaf pan or small cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. With an ice cream scoop, scoop vanilla ice cream into the loaf pan or cookie sheet.Place the pan in the freezer to set about 20 minutes.

To prepare the ice cream float:

To a tall glass add about 4 maraschino cherries and muddle with a muddler or handle of a wooden spoon. To the muddled cherries add a scoop or two of ice cream. Add about 4 more cherries and top with a couple more scoops of ice cream. Top with sparkling red wine.

*Note: If you can’t find sparkling red wine (or don’t wish to leave the house), make your own. To about 3/4 cup (6 ounces) of red wine add about 1/4 cup (2 ounces) of seltzer. Feel free to play with those ratios. Want it more bubbly? Add more seltzer? Love more booze? Go.For.It.
