We’re open-minded when it comes to our vino, so when we first heard about wine milkshakes a couple years ago we were optimistic that ice cream and wine could be a dynamic duo. Today however, that trend has taken a step in an interesting direction after Red Robin announced their plans to carry wine milkshakes at all of their U.S. locations.
Red Robin had already lost points with us for their beer cocktails and now they’re adding wine to the mix. Their first release, the Mango Moscato Wine Shake, is made with wine, vodka, mango puree and vanilla soft serve. This is only the first of a few recipes to come that will be available at Red Robins later this summer.
If we had to guess, we’re not going to say these wine milkshakes aren’t going to be on our drink order. Maybe it’s the combo of wine and ice cream that’s throwing us off? We’ll steer clear for now, but for those of you who do order a vino shake, fill us in.
