Berry Wine Ice Cream Sauce
Dessert doesn’t get much better than this berry wine ice cream sauce.
The berries, touch of wine, and orange zest blend perfectly together to make this amazing sauce to put over vanilla ice cream.
For even more delicious flavor, try drizzling a bit of chocolate sauce over the vanilla ice cream first.
And then add the berry wine sauce.
This sauce is simple to make, unique and the thick consistency pairs perfectly with vanilla ice cream.
It’s served warm over the vanilla ice cream so you can only imagine the delicious sauciness going on along with melted ice cream.
This can be made ahead of time and warmed up just before serving.
Let’s check out the ingredients.
Raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, orange zest (or tangelo zest) and…
Red Wine (Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir, or Zinfandel), fresh lemon juice and sugar
HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE

If making the sauce ahead of time, let cool for 1 hour and put the sauce in a container with a lid (a mason jar works well) and keep it in the refrigerator no longer than 3 to 4 days.
Serve the berry wine sauce warm, over vanilla ice cream.
And for a delicious taste, try adding some chocolate sauce over the vanilla ice cream before adding the berry wine sauce.

Hi Laurel, I knew exactly what you meant. Do let me know how this turned out for you. Thank you!
Hi there! How thick is thick? I am storing this on medium Heat, strawberries are beginning to lose their color although the blueberries are Plumping up nicely The syrup does coat the spoon but it’s quite thin coming off the spoon. Will it thicken up as it cools?
Hi Laurel, it should thicken up as it cooks and then also after it cools.

Hi Jillian, I like to use Pinot Noir or Cabernet Sauvignon. Thank you for stopping by!
