Oh boy, have I got a treat for you! So, I’m walking through the front doors of the local Aldi grocery store, on a typically normal shopping day, and what catches my eye as I’m trying to quickly pass the wine shelves so I am not tempted to buy things NOT on my list (as if that was really going to work). This beautiful Toffee Buttermint wine. It has a such a delicious blend of toffee, buttermint, and chocolate. How can that ever be wrong? When I saw that bottle, I just had to stop and look at it. “What is it?” I wondered to myself usually out loud and making people think I’m crazy. “How do you drink this? Wonder what it tastes like?” All those typical questions.
Let me take the guess work out of it for you. First step, buy the wine. I have no idea what vineyard distributes this, all I know is I found it at Aldi and haven’t seen it anywhere else. Not even on Amazon! So if you’re lucky enough to have a local Aldi store, you might take a look and see if they have any. My feeling is that it’s probably seasonal. What I do know about this wine, is that it comes from Ireland and it’s about 5.99 a bottle locally. It’s cheap folks, but trust me when I say, it doesn’t taste cheap.
So, on with how to enjoy this wine. You’re going to love this. There are two ways I know to enjoy this wine. First, like the picture above, the obvious way, over some ice. Just pour it over ice, and sip away. Beautiful dessert wine. It tastes as delicious as it sounds. Enjoy it with your favorite dessert, or for dessert like I did.
Another way to enjoy this Toffee Buttermint wine, pour it over ice cream. Seriously. Just pour it over some vanilla ice cream like you would any other ice cream syrup and enjoy! The richness of this wine pairs exceptionally well with vanilla ice cream. You won’t regret trying that one. I do hope you are able to find this delicious dessert wine so you can try it for yourselves, and enjoy it as much as I did, and if you do, and you try something other than on the rocks and over ice cream, please let me know! I’d love to hear your creative ideas for this awesome Toffee Buttermint Wine!
And as always, my friends, please drink responsibly.
