These ice cream floats are a delicious adult treat
These Dirty Coke Floats take a childhood classic treat and give it an adult flair. They're sweet, boozy, and super refreshing.
I couldn't resist making these floats
When a picture of these Dirty Coke Floats showed up in my Facebook feed, I knew that I had to make them. They looked so fun and tasty.
I found this recipe on the blog Dessert Now, Dinner Later! and modified it slightly.
These floats are pretty versatile!
The original recipe doesn't include any alcohol, but I couldn't help myself and added a little rum. If you'd rather stick with a mocktail, by all means, leave the rum out. These floats are easy and versatile like that. You can also use vanilla ice cream instead of coconut if you'd prefer a more classic float experience. Prefer Dr. Pepper over Coke (I know my husband does!)? Make that swap. This is a choose-your-own-adventure kind of float situation.

- ½ lime, juiced
- 1 ½ oz. light rum
- 12 oz. can of cola
- 3 small scoops coconut ice cream
- lime slice, for garnish
- Squeeze the ½ lime into the bottom of a glass. Add the light rum and whatever cola you're using.
- Add the scoops of ice cream and stir gently with a spoon or straw. It should foam up a bit, like you see in the pictures.
- Garnish with a lime.
