Life is about doing more with less, and we prefer to do so while melting into the nearest couch with a bottle of wine in one hand and a pint of Ben and Jerry's in the other. Fortunately, your nights spent doing your best sloth impersonation (save the intermittent glass-to-mouth motion) just got that much more productive, thanks to Winecream.
Presumably created by a girl fresh off a break up, Winecream is—you guessed it—wine ice cream, that has actual alcohol in it. Unlike the various wine-flavored ice creams that merely imitate the nectar of the gods, the makers of Winecream cut to the chase and infused each scoop with a full glass of wine. Each pint contains roughly 10 percent alcohol by volume. Created by a small, family-owned business with their priorities in line, Winecream is made with all-natural fruit purées, mix-ins, and "super-charged" wine.
The delicious treat has been produced and served by the Crossroad Company at festivals and private events in Baltimore since 2014. A recent expansion into a warehouse space will allow the start-up to anoint the masses with their deliciously boozy dessert, with plans to sell Winecream both in-stores and online.
"We'll be offering pints for sale in stores with alcoholic retail licenses in the Maryland/DC area starting this summer," said Katie Gorham, owner and managing member of the Crossroad Company, in an email exchange with Thrillist. "We'll be rolling out shipments starting with other Mid-Atlantic states, hopefully sometime in late 2016 (just don't hold me to that!)."
Winecream is now available for pre-order in Chocolate Covered Strawberry and Mixed Berry flavors in the Maryland and Washington, D.C. area. Snag your pint here.
