Wow! This is a fantastic recipe. Tastes delicious, easy to make and impressed our guests. Served it with strawberries and blueberries. Will definitely make it again.

Absolutely delicious but why does the recipe specify wines which are near impossible to get in Europe? I made it with a sweet Bordeaux but will try it next time with a heavier proper dessert wine, I have a feeling the flavour will be even better.

Couldn't believe how quick and easy this was and it tastes fantastic! I served it with strawberries which I marinated with a little sugar and some of the wine while the ice cream was freezing and it was a huge hit with everyone. Will definitely be making this again and again!

I made this yesterday to serve at the end of a BBQ and I was very impressed with it. It was so quick to put together and the end result was very tasty. I served mine with strawberries.

@ ashAley - caster sugar is superfine sugar in the US (or you can blitz granulated sugar briefly in a food processor, it's just a finer grain but not as fine as icing (confectioner's sugar)) and double cream is heavy cream I beleive.

I'd like to make a non-alcoholic version, would this be possible? Maybe if I used Appletiser or something?

Really want to try this recipe, but I live in America. What do you think would be the equivalent to caster sugar and double cream here? Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.

I made this on Saturday. It was delicious. However, I think it would have been better with an icecream maker, as mine was slightly icey. Still wonderful though.

My friend made this last week, and I've never had anything like it. Delicious, and alcoholic. I'm going to attempt it this evening.

This recipe is SO easy and tastes divine. Absolutely gorgeous. I made it with Muscadet which is a medium-dry wine and it was still beautifully sweet and very moreish. I found it best when it was not completely frozen, as it was at its most creamy.

All in all, a fantastic recipe!

This was one of the most simple, and yet gorgeously moreish ice cream recipes I have ever tried.

went down a treat at a dinner party with strawberry coulis
