South Africa doesn’t have snow holiday seasons but it doesn’t mean that when winter arrives, we can’t have the same warm treats. Glühwein is one of those perfect winter treats you can have with your friends to keep you warm and festive. Made with warmed red wine and an assortment of spices like cloves, cinnamon and citrus fruit. However, South Africans love ice cream all year which is why this shiraz glühwein ice cream is so perfect for locals.
The best part about this ice cream is that you don’t need an expensive ice cream machine to churn it. Whipping cream and some condensed milk works great as your ice cream base and will hold onto the shiraz glühwein you’ve made. You can make a big batch of the wine and start the evening with that before ending the night on this tasty ice cream. You can also make your own homemade glühwein recipe if you’ve already got one.
You can still have the classic holiday treats during South African winters. Try this shiraz glühwein ice cream on the weekend with your friends.
