What’s better than an ice cream float? A boozy ice cream float. They allow you to feel like a kid while enjoying one of the finer points of being an adult.It’s Monday. I’m feeling rather unmotivated. So here we are, talking about ice cream floats. And alcohol.
I’m sure you’ve seen the recent onslaught of hard sodas that are making their way into stores. So far, I’ve seen root beer, orange soda, ginger ale, and now cherry cola. I picked up some of the hard cherry cola on Friday and made these floats yesterday. They’re sweet and fun, and have a bit of a kick from the hard cola.
You’ll need (makes 1 float):
- 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream
- 2 tsp grenadine
- hard cherry cola (or regular cherry cola)
- maraschino cherry, for garnish
Drop the scoops of ice cream into a tall glass. Splash a little grenadine in there, then fill to the top with hard cherry cola. It will fizz and foam up quite a bit, so watch out! Garnish with a cherry and have at it.
