Ice Cream Parfaits with Peach Wine Syrup


A simple peach wine syrup takes these parfaits to an elevated adults-only level.



For the Peach Wine Syrup

  • 1/2 cup peach wine
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

For the Parfaits

  • 1 pint vanilla bean ice cream, softened
  • 1/2 cup diced peaches (see note)
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup whipped cream and mint sprigs, for garnish


  1. Make the peach wine syrup: Heat the wine and sugar in a small sauce pan over medium high heat. Bring it to a simmer and let it bubble until the sugar has dissolved. Transfer to a container and place it in the refrigerator to chill.
  2. Make the parfaits: scoop about 1/4 cup of ice cream and place in the bottom of each glass. Top with peaches and blueberries. Add a tablespoon or so of the wine syrup over the fruit. Add another 1/4 cup of ice cream, more fruit, and another drizzle of syrup. Place the parfaits in the freezer for 5-10 minutes to firm up the ice cream. To serve, top with whipped cream and a sprig of fresh mint (optional).


If peaches are not in season, substitute frozen ones – just be sure to thaw them in the refrigerator before using them in the recipe.
