Ice cream floats

Nothing makes people happier than an ice cream float bar on a hot day. To serve 8 people, you’ll need at least 2 pts. ice cream or sorbet and 64 oz. cold soda or juice, but having extra encourages experimentation. Here are some of our favorite combinations.

Coffee Cream = coffee ice cream + cream soda

Coconut Citrus = coconut sorbet + grapefruit soda

Fro-yo Berry = vanilla frozen yogurt + sparkling berry juice

Double Lemon = lemon sorbet  + sparking lemonade

Cook’s tip Serve the ice cream floats in heavy glass mugs ― they retain cold best. (Put mugs in the freezer an hour before using.)
