Ice cream and wine are two ingredients that don’t typically get paired together. However, the unlikely duo can become a delightful treat when you blend them together to create a moscato milkshake, a boozy adult take on a regular milkshake.

Although some alcoholic milkshake recipes call for Baileys Irish Cream or Kahlua rum as their alcohol of choice, this milkshake recipe from is perfect for the sweet wine-lovers among us since it calls for a cup of moscato wine. (For an extra-boozy kick, the recipe adds in 4 ounces of vodka, as well.)

A moscato milkshake is simple to whip together and takes just a few minutes once you’ve gathered the ingredients; you only need to toss everything into a blender or food processor, so it’s almost impossible to get it wrong. Plus, the recipe makes two servings. Share with a friend or keep it all to yourself!


To create a rich, creamy base, you’ll use frozen raspberries and vanilla ice cream as well as your favorite brand of sparkling moscato wine, like a moscato d’Asti. Once all the ingredients are blended smoothly, pour the mixture into a glass (a large white wine glass works well) and top each serving with a dash of whipped cream and garnish with a few more raspberries, if you’d like.

The carbonation in a sparkling moscato wine gives the milkshake its float-like texture and taste, but you can also sub a still moscato or any other sweet wine you have on hand. Want to skip the dairy? An oat milk-based ice cream would also work well with this recipe.

So, whether you drink your moscato milkshake as a nightcap or enjoy it as a dessert, this pink-colored concoction is sure to satisfy any sugar craving. If you prefer, you can try subbing out different types of alcohol for the vodka, like Baileys Strawberries & Cream, or use strawberries instead of raspberries.
