Enjoy Umeshu

Enjoy your ice cream with umeshu this summer

Packed with nutrients and health benefits, umeshu – the Japanese plum wine –  is the perfect go-to drink for hot Indian summers. Summer heat can be draining for everyone, leaving one dehydrated and tired. Umeshu can help boost your energy levels and recover from summer fatigue. Enjoy a glass of chilled umeshu when the summer heat gets to you, or even better, pair it with your favorite ice cream!

The hot pairing of ice cream and umeshu

If you are looking for a refreshing delicious cold drink with a twist this summer, look no further – it couldn’t get any more perfect than ice cream with umeshu. To begin with, take a scoop of vanilla ice cream and carefully place it over your glass of chilled umeshu. The sweet, cold vanilla ice cream paired with the crispy, sweet-to-sour taste of umeshu makes a great beverage to have during hot Indian summers. 

Once you get a hang of the pairing and how the flavors sit together, you can experiment with more ice cream flavors. Umeshu usually pairs well with fruity flavors but you can go with whatever you choose. 

Here are some ice cream flavors we recommend to pair with different types of umeshu:

Vanilla ice cream

Vanilla is a versatile flavor and pairs with just about everything. You can have vanilla ice cream with every type of umeshu. You can have it as a float, putting a scoop of the vanilla ice cream over a glass of chilled umeshu. You can also pour the umeshu over your scoop of ice cream and have it in a bowl. 

Pina Orange ice cream

Pina orange ice cream brings together two juicy refreshing fruit flavors – pineapple and orange. These two fruits in ice cream are delicious by themselves, but add umeshu to it, and it is a match made in heaven. It works best with six to twelve-month-old umeshu and for umeshu made using beer or wine.

Strawberry ice cream

Fresh strawberry ice cream is another fruity delight that pairs well with umeshu. Umeshu has the perfect crisp, juicy plum flavor with a delicious sweet taste, which goes very well with the slightly tart sweetness of strawberry ice cream. You can even chop some strawberries and add them to the mix. 

Mango ice cream

Are summers ever complete without all the delicious mango delicacies? Mango ice cream and umeshu make a great combination. The sweetness of mangoes paired with crisp umeshu works very well. Umeshu adds a new dimension to the flavor of mango ice cream. This one is something you need to try. 

This summer, don’t just have ice cream; add some umeshu to it and have a refreshing delicious experience.
