@tsarstepan,
Have you and BumbleBeeBoogie conspired to do this to us today? First, her history of ice cream thread which made my mouth water. Now with you with the ice cream float which is loosening up my dentures. Stop already!!!

@Lustig Andrei,
BBB and Sturgis both inspired this thread. Blame them not me. I am merely a frozen dairy-based vessel.

Yeah; but, you are a well known ice cream fan

so it was with that in mind that I first placed the red wine ice cream in front of you. See? I'm innocent, innocent gosh darn it!

@tsarstepan,
Maybe a fruit ice cream, one of the fruits in Sangria. I haven't had sangria in years, so I don't remember..

Adds, the BBB thread has gotten me to be making a cocoa gelato concoction to chill overnight (will add almonds and vanilla). Will report back.

I'm thinking anything other than a merlot!

It's gotta be a sweet red, doesn't it? I'm thinking Lambrusco! Or anything in a jug from Gallo!

@Ticomaya,
Lambrusco apparently varies, according to the fellow who lived there, Fbaezer. Me, I dunno. He likely tasted better stuff.

Past that, to me, any wine you add fruit or ice cream to is ordinarily nothing much.

If it is good, I don't quite get it. If it is some supremo port, why would you fool with it.

Still, maybe a pour over ice cream. I remember liking good scotch over good vanilla ice cream, with some bit of espresso grind. Talk about luxurious.

@Ticomaya,
I don't think it's gotta be sweet at all, Tico. You wanna offset the sweetness of the ice cream with something more on the dry side. (But, then, I always hated sweet wines anyway, especially if the sweetness is an add-on in the bottling process.)

@Lustig Andrei,
You may be right, there. I don't know, and don't expect to find out. A red wine ice cream float sounds horrible to me. But then so do french fries and cookies ... but darn it if they don't taste good together!

(I do like merlot ... that's my favorite red.)

I'm thinking mad dog 20/20 or boonesfarm(is that the name?) with maybe a black raspberry flavored ice cream - perhaps the store brand.

Back in the 60s, when Ripple wine was the wine of college students, I was given some to drink and thought it tasted like Faygo's Rock n Rye. Think Dr. Pepper if you're not from Michigan. I said immediately that Ripple should be served with either a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a scoop of orange sherbet. I had it both ways back then. The ice cream made the Ripple tolerable.

Actually, going with Sangria -- if it is made the genuine way and not the American way full of crap -- is a good suggestion. Put peach ice cream in white wine. I "made" peach wine this year and it was wonderful. It involved putting leaves from a peach tree and a vanilla bean in a bottle of wine for about a month.

I also think citrus sorbet in red wine or cinnamon sorbet in the same or some chocolate ice cream in ruby port or maple ice cream in tawny port might work.
