This sundae was inspired by a winter trip a few years ago to Italy. I don't know what else to call it except "the best sundae you'll ever eat."

The flavors here are so complementary and play off each other perfectly: the salt and caramelized sugar in the ice cream, the warm honey and Vin Santo sauce—delicious.

Il Santo is an Italian dessert wine that is equally delicious and less than half the price of Vin Santo. Il Santo sounds like a great name for a rapper and Vin Santo sounds like a mob henchman, but both taste exactly like golden raisins to me.
