We officially moved to Durham, NC last Saturday!
I’m beyond excited to finally be down here and to start work at Duke next week. I’ll be sharing more about the transition to southern life as things develop.
I’ve spent the past week unpacking and trying to organize the house. I am finally at a point where all of my blog props and whatnot are unpacked, and the bedroom that I’m using as a “studio” (and as a spare bedroom) is organized enough that I could take some photos.
In an attempt to kick things off with a proper Southern treat, I decided to go with Cheerwine Ice Cream Floats.
Haven’t tried Cheerwine? Cheerwine is a cherry-flavored soda that was created right here in North Carolina. It was introduced to me by my friend, Emily, who is a South Carolina native. It’s bubbly and sweet, and perfect over vanilla ice cream.
You’ll need (makes 1):
- 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
- Cheerwine soda
Drop the scoops of ice cream into a tall glass. Top with Cheerwine. Drink!
Be careful, because as soon as the soda hits the ice cream, things will get pretty foamy. Pour slowly.
Looking for more float goodness?
