Wine Floats Are Officially a Thing and We’re Here for It

First, there was wine, then wine ice cream. Now our two loves come together in the newest trendy thing: wine floats. Yes! The genius, aesthetically pleasing grown-up version of root beer floats is trending on Instagram as we head into the second half of the summer. Part ice cream and part wine, they’re exactly what we’ve been craving during these uncertain times.

Instructions are as simple as combining the two ingredients. Next, go as over the top as you wish with garnishes, such as fruits, berries, and syrups. Tens of hundreds of people have been posting their gorgeous wine floats, and let us tell you: they’re going to make you want to drop everything and run to the grocery store immediately.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
