Boozy ice cream isn't just reserved for warmer months. To ring in the New Year, churn up this dazzling ice cream that stars sparkling wine. Because getting the right ratio of alcohol to ice cream can be tricky, we turned to the ultimate ice cream master, Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, and adapted a recipe from her foolproof cookbook Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home. Unlike most ice cream recipes out there, this one doesn't call for any egg. It receives its ultra thick, almost chewy texture due to an unexpected ingredient: cream cheese. While this ice cream doesn't have enough sparkling wine to leave you buzzed, it does have the fantastic flavor of whatever you put in it. Serve it alongside a demi-sec Champagne (AKA a sweeter sparkling wine) to complete the celebration. Cheers!
