It has five per cent alcohol content

Do you ever find yourself having to choose between a tempting glass of wine with a meal or a cheeky dessert afterwards? Well, now you can have the best of both worlds.

Mercer’s Dairy which first opened in New York over 60 years ago is sending tongues wagging with their award-winning wine ice cream.

The company, which was bought by Roxiana Hurlburt, one of the original family owners of Quality Dairy Farms, Inc. last year, came up with the idea back in 2006 and have since created the following eight delicious flavours:

Cherry Merlot, Spice, Peach White Zinfandel, Port, Red Raspberry Chardonnay, Riesling, Chocolate Cabernet and Strawberry Sparkling.

With a five per cent alcohol content, this ice cream is the perfect way to keep your New Year's celebrations going right into 2015.

Sadly, Mercer’s can only distribute across the US but trying it is definitely something worth putting on your to-do list for when you’re next across the Pond.
