It’s not a vineyard, but it’s close! Get tipsy off of some wine ice cream. Your cheap wine might actually taste good in ice cream form. Box of Franzia: you’ve never looked so good.

WHAT YOU'LL DO

Make an ice cream using your favorite wine. How does it hold up? Make another ice cream using cheap wine. Does that one taste better than the good wine? Worse? We will let you be the judge!

 

SAMPLE RECIPES

2. Using a blender, combine 1 packet of HIJINX ice cream mix with the milk mixture. Blend for one minute or until thoroughly combined.

3. Let the mixture rest for 30 minutes on your counter.

4. After 30 minutes, gently stir in the wine and dark chocolate pieces.

5. Transfer to a freezer-safe container with an airtight lid.

6. Freeze for 3-6 hours. Enjoy!
