Ice Cream Drink Pairings Sometimes it's ok to eat dessert first, it's one of the very few perks of "adult-ing". Another perk? Adult Beverages. Find out what you should pour up next to your pint of Halo Top Ice Cream, and which wine pairs well with a klondike bar.
Birthday Cake Halo Top Ice Cream
If you're still riding the 'all-rainbow-everything' wave, this ice cream was made for you. Packed with the flavor of sweet cake batter and confetti colored sprinkles it's basically a party in a pint. Balance the sweet flavors with a bright hoppy citrus IPA like one of these:
Rainbow Snow Cone The OG of rainbow treats, one taste of a classic snow cone will bring you back to days of chasing down the ice cream truck to get your hands on this fruity-ice-goodness. Grab a tart citrus shandy for the ultimate summer combo:
Sea Salt Caramel Halo Top Ice Cream Get your salty-sweet fix with this Sea Salt Caramel flavored ice cream. Smooth caramel flavors will pick up the smoky sweet notes you'll typically find in a stout, while the salt will cut through the heaviness often associated with darker beers like these:
Orange Creamsicle The only thing that can make this classic summer union of orange and vanilla even more enjoyable is a chilled glass of vino. Reach for a bottle of dry or brut sparkling wine to play up the bright citrus and sweet vanilla flavors:
Red Velvet Halo Top Ice Cream You can't get much more decadent than Red Velvet ice cream. Like it's namesake, this flavor is full of sweet white cake flavors and creamy frosting goodness. Balance the richness with a crisp white wine, or go all in with an equally luxurious oatmeal stout:
Klondike Bar Layered in a hard chocolate shell, the ice cream center of this frozen treat is the perfect way to cool down on a hot day. If summer had an official wine, it would absolutely be a chilled glass of sparkling rose, which also happens to be the ideal pairing for this rich chocolate treat:
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Halo Ice Cream Consider this flavor your official comeback to the haters who say you can't eat raw cookie dough. You really can't go wrong with the flavor of sweet coookie dough and chocolate chips. When it comes to balancing silky sweet flavors bourbon is the way to go:
Peanut Butter Cup Halo Ice Cream
Sometimes it's ok to be a little nutty, especially when chocolate is involved. Channel your inner kid with Halo's play on peanut butter cups that you can literally eat by the spoonful. This classic combination is rich, creamy and pairs perfectly with a bold red wine:
This boozy milkshake blends up a classic summertime treat with Baileys Original Irish Cream, Vanilla Vodka and plenty of Chocolate Ice Cream. This one-of-a-kind adult-approved drink is (almost) better than that feeling you get when you hear the Ice Cream Truck jingle...
This tropical coconut margarita is PERFECT for Cinco de Mayo. And it was so so easy to whip up! I love a good tropical margarita on any old day, but this one is especially perfect for my favorite “holiday” on May 5th.
