Strawberry Wine Ice Cream Float

Strawberry Wine Ice Cream Float is the perfectly boozy sweet treat to enjoy during the hot summer months. Serve this wine float at your next party!

It’s easy to transform just 4 ingredients into a creamy adult beverage that comes together in mere minutes!

Recreating your old childhood favorite drink by adding strawberry wine, takes it to an entirely different level of delicious. It’s simple enough you can make a strawberry float during the week after a rough day.

Serving cold and refreshing drinks at barbecues and potlucks are a must when it’s hot out. Try this Peach Frozen Margarita and my classic Easy Pina Colada Recipe.

Or, if you are looking for something incredibly unique, reach for my Gummy Bear Jello Shots. Another crowd pleaser is this Orange White Wine Sangria.

Wine Float - Helpful Tips and Tricks

  • Use your favorite wine. Don’t settle for a wine you don’t love. Choose a bottle that tastes great on it’s own.

  • Serve with a spoon and a straw. Eat the strawberry float right away with a spoon or let it sit for a few minutes then drink it with a straw.

  • Use fresh, ripe strawberries. Nothing beats fresh strawberries and they give you something to munch on as you are enjoying the float.

  • Make it sweeter. Swap the club soda for strawberry soda to make the ice cream float even sweeter and a more intense strawberry flavor.

  • Create a fruity twist. Mix in a few additional berries, such as raspberries and blueberries. Add around 4-8 of the extra berries so they aren’t too overwhelming and add a hint of color and flavor.

Tools Needed For This Wine Float
  • Wine Glasses - You can go for elegant or keep it fun and playful like these stemless wine glasses.
  • Ice Cream Scoop - With all the scoops that I have, this is the one I use most often. It’s easy to use and works on really frozen ice cream.

FAQ - Common Recipe Questions

Can you make the strawberry float kid friendly?

Yes! In fact, kids will go wild for these ice cream floats. Simply omit the wine and club soda. Use strawberry soda instead and the kids will love it.

For parties where there are alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks, use a different style glass for the kids so they don’t get mixed up.

Is it okay to use flavored ice cream?

Sure! While it’s hard to beat the creamy flavor of regular vanilla ice cream, it’s fine to use flavored ice cream.

Strawberry ice cream is a great option if you want to change up the flavor. In a pinch, you could also use strawberry sherbet, and it will taste great and still be creamy.
