You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream...and wine? 

Tastemakers are insisting that this year's drink of the summer is a "wine float" -- a glass of vino with a scoop of ice cream dropped into it. While we're not sure about the idea, you can try it out with a very simple recipe:

  • 5 ounces chilled wine (Pinot Noir, Malbec, Gamay or Syrah)
  • 1 scoop ice cream (sorbet, dairy-free or gelato)
  • A splash of seltzer water

Pour the wine into a glass. Add a scoop of ice cream and top with seltzer.

It sounds interesting- I'd definitely try it.
