Ice cream as we all know comes in a dazzling array of flavours ranging from the traditional through the exotic to the downright weird. However, on a trip to Cochem I tried ice cream – Riesling ice cream in fact.
Initially, I expected it to be just wine flavoured ice cream, but the first lick proved it really was made from the real thing. Four scoops later and I honestly could feel the effects! Maybe that was just a placebo effect, as surely ice cream cannot be that alcoholic?
Anyway, all I can say is if you have a sweet tooth and love refreshing ice cream as opposed to the rich creamy varieties, get yourself over to Cochem and give it a try. Unfortunately, I did not get the name of the particular parlour where I had it, but it was right in the historic centre and I saw other places selling it. You can probably get it in other towns along the river too, although I have struggled to find it in Zell.
