It’s hard for me to believe, but I became a contributing member of society 21 years ago this summer by starting my first job at Baskin Robbins. I’ve since transitioned over to the aviation industry but the lessons I learned scooping ice cream will never leave me. Working in retail is something every person should have to accomplish to fully understand the experience of people on the other side of the counter. My favorite ice cream then and still is their peanut butter and chocolate…I wish I had some now as I type this up!
Recently Baskin Robbins teamed up Rosenthal – the Malibu Estate Wines to create a wine and ice cream pairing guide. What?! My two favorite things, not including sushi got together?!?! Let’s discover these amazing pairings together and I’m absolutely open to anyone who wants to come over and do a taste test! What’s your favorite?
Pinot Grigio or Grenache Blanc with Vanilla: A refreshingly indulgent combination, the buttery vanilla flavor of the ice cream brings out the crisp, green fruit notes in the wine.
Riesling or Gruner Veltliner with Pralines ‘n Cream: The praline pecan and caramel flavors in the ice cream pair well with the apple notes of the wine. The ice cream also helps to round out the fresh green notes of the wine.
