Wine milkshakes go on sale in LA

LA burger chain The Counter has added wine milkshakes to its menu.

Wine milkshakes

The milkshakes, inspired by classic desserts, are being blended at select Counter restaurants across Los Angeles.

According to their creator, the wine helps to cut through the sweetness of the shake, with the flavour milkshake-like to start, but with a wine finish.

The burger chain is offering three flavors: Pinot Noir, featuring cherries, chocolate and vanilla ice cream; Sweet Peach, made using sweet wine, peach nectar and vanilla ice cream; and Mimosa, featuring sparkling white, orange juice and vanilla ice cream.

Perhaps due to the ongoing success of the Santa Barbara-based film Sideways, in which the protagonist Miles extols the virtues of the difficult but rewarding Pinot Noir grape, the Pinot Noir shake is proving the most popular of the trio.

The shakes can be found on pour at The Counter restaurants in Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey, Century City, Toluca Lake, El Segundo, Torrance and Hermosa Beach.
