July is National Ice Cream Month

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

As the summer reaches peak temperatures in July, Americans celebrate National Ice Cream Month as a way to cool off and enjoy the nation’s favorite frozen treat with friends and family.  We can thank a Presidential Proclamation for this day!  In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day.

What better way to celebrate two of our favorite things - wine and ice cream, than to make a boozy wine float.  Delish has a red wine float

and a red wine milkshake

that we are dying to try out!
