Rosé ice cream is the summer treat we all deserve

Long gone are the days when rosé wine was the preserve of skint university students and bad hen-dos.

The blush beverage has definitely been having a moment (the pink stuff has even got an upcoming foodie festival dedicated to it) and there’s no better time to put away a crisp glass (or four) than during the summer.

But, as those summer climes continue, we’ve been hankering for something a little cooler and creamier. Something with all the great taste of our favourite wine, but… well., y’know, edible.

Enter the fray, rosé ice cream.


Oh yes, we’re deadly serious: this genuinely exists.

The summery concoction is made by California-based Smitten Ice Cream in partnership with Scribe Winery.

It is made with the winery’s Una Lou Rosé, a canned rosé made with Pinot Noir grapes grown in Sonoma County.

And, by all accounts, it sounds delicious: Scribe describes the wine as featuring notes of wild strawberry, grapefruit pith, and salt.

At just 3.5% ABV, it’s unlikely to get you sloshed but given the amount of ice cream we can put away that is a challenge we’re willing to accept.

The bad news is it’s currently only available in shops in California, but plans could be in the pipeline to import the boozy treat. 

In the meantime, we have a feeling that our red wine ice cream recipe could easily be adapted by swapping out a bottle of merlot for a bottle of your favourite blush wine. Get the instructions here.
