Summer is officially here, and that means we’re in for several months of sweat-inducing temperatures. Luckily, there’s a new type of ice cream that provides a boozy, delicious way to cool down on even the hottest of days.

The frozen goodness combines two of the things that are most wonderful in this world into one heavenly treat. You have Smitten Ice Cream Shop in California to thank for this gift. They’ve taken rosé wine featuring grapefruit and strawberry flavors and turned it into an ice cream that packs an ABV of 3.5 percent.

Even if you don’t live close enough to visit Smitten in person, you can still devour this treat, since the company ships nationwide. Imagine curling up with a bowl of this during your next Netflix binge? Sounds ideal. You can purchase the ice cream here.

Rosé all hump day. Our newest flavor, a collaboration with @petitmarlowesf (sister of @marlowesf) and @scribewinery, is called Sonoma Rosé and is available at our SF Mission shop only and will be on the menus of Petit Marlowe when it opens this Friday! ????????
