I once wrote about Wine Ice Cream and recalling I had mixed feelings, reviews, and emotions about what I was sampling. It was out 0f my comfort level but that wasn’t the problem. I feel I overpaid for something that wasn’t worth it weight in gold or ice cream. It was ok but nothing phenomenal. For something as inventive and inspiring as this it needs to be special or it’s going to fail miserably. I will give them another whirl again.
I’ll preface this by saying I know the owner and he’s a good guy. This in no way was going to sway my opinion one way or the other. I was hoping for the opportune time to write about this sweet and tasty treat.
Did I just give away how I felt about it? Well yes I did. At these big festivals I try not to find out who’s going to be there if I can. The decision is solely based on keeping me on my toes and adding to the suspense. I have some idea of the staples and seminal attendees of the event but its always fun to be pleasantly surprised.
This was a pleasant and a wonderful surprise.
I had no idea what I wanted to order, yet the menus were so user friendly. Everything was accessible. Since I was a fish out of a water, my friend asked me what flavor I preferred. He then told me to trust him on everything else. I mean how could I not. Saying it’s a leap of faith is a stretch but its still fun to say. And away he went.
The concept of how it works can be found here.
After a couple of minutes he handed me this peach concoction that I decimated in minutes. What else was in it I don’t know and I may never need to know. It was wondrous, it was masterful, and it was divine. I honestly didn’t realize how quickly I had trounced this thing until I was at the bottom of my cup. The deceptive thing for me is how I couldn’t taste much alcohol. Unlike my previous Wine Ice Cream experience, this was consistent and left me wanting more. Sometimes the best alcohol is when you hardly taste it. However, if not careful you’ve had one too many and you’re spinning in circles. Which may not be a bad thing depending on how you look at it.
Ingredients for all their creations are posted above. I’m assuming mine contained peach wine, epic.
The rainy weather may not have been conducive to enjoying some WineCream but I didn’t care. No one else seemed to mind either.
And yes one cup equals one glass of wine, so I wish I could have had a few. I did see some familiar faces enjoying more than one. If I had my way that would have been me but I had a responbility at the festival that kept me in check.
Most important fact about all this, was this was on the house. I felt flattered and grateful. It’s the little things that are the biggest things. But that’s a detail that will never go unnoticed.
This will not be the last time I expound on WineCream. This was a refreshing alternative to the traditional glass of wine. It’s the present and the future. And I can only hope the future if unbounded and unlimited.
Finally, here is last weeks post from the same festival.
This is going to be a rocking Summer.
