Sparkling Wine Ice Cream Float Experiment w/ Spy Wine Cooler

Spy, Cherry Float Ice Cream

Thinking of something different for your Christmas drinks?  How about a sparkling wine ice cream float?  I know it sounds silly.  It was really just a crazy thought but after we tried it, eureka!

Spy Wine Cooler is an authentic wine-based sparkling drink that comes in a variety of  flavors with no bitter after taste.  It comes in 3 variants: Classic, White, and Red. SPY Classic is my favorite.  It's light and sweet w/ only 5% alcohol.   SPY Red has 6% alcohol of blended Thai grapes & sparkling water.  SPY White is champagne base with 7% alcohol.

Now on the Sparking Wine Ice Cream Float, the idea came after purchasing 2 packs of Spy drinks in a food expo mid this year.  After hearing about its sparkling (aka.carbonated) water content, which is the same substance in soda drinks that creates a "foamy" reaction to the ice cream, I dared H to try it as a float.  Why not, right?  Then, the rest is history.
Spy Wine (I prefer Classic flavor)
Vanilla ice cream
Cherry for Flavor
How to Make Sparkling Wine Float:
1. Pour chilled wine in a small glass.  Half full only to give room for the foam (ice is optional)
2. Add a scoop of ice cream  (or 2!)
3. Top with cherry for sossy presentation
When using tall glasses, place 2 scoops of ice cream first before pouring in the sparkling wine.  Then, add another scoop on top.

Easy, right?  Anyway, let me know what you think.
