I love wine and I love ice cream. To make the most of both, I'd highly recommend trying out Martha Stewart’s red wine ice cream recipe. 

We know boozy ice cream shakes are a brilliant way to combine dessert with happy hour, but why not take your game one step further by making your ice cream with the wine right in it?

Pick up a bottle of your favourite sweet red or white, or get wild and try a bottle of orange wine to pair with summer fruits or chocolate. 

Go crazy - the sky’s the limit! To get you started, check out these 5 wine ice cream recipes, just in time for #WineWednesday. (Disclaimer: I didn’t invent #WineWednesday but I’m well on my way to perfecting it.
