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.

- 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.

Omg. Coconut ice cream in there is brilliance!
It was actually pretty hard for me to find, but worth it!
Cannot wait to indulge in one of these with friends by the pool this summer-- such a decadent treat! And it would be so great with limes from the grill! Thanks for sharing
Limes from the grill would make an excellent addition to this drink!! Great idea!
I am definitely going to try this drink as soon as I remember to by the ice cream .
I hope that you love it! It will be a little taste of summer in February =)
