Ice cream floats are one of my absolute favorite indulgences. I don't normally drink soda, but for some reason when it's mixed with ice cream, it transforms into magic in a glass.

These beauties are super simple to make. Let's go...

Step 1: Supplies

  • Ice Cream (I like to use vanilla, but I've heard that chocolate is also worth trying.)
  • Pop, a.k.a. Soda (Root Beer and Orange Cream are my faves, but others to try are Cherry & Cola)
  • Glasses
  • Ice Cream Scoop
  • Straws and/or Spoons
  • Garnish, if desired
<p>cherry vanilla ice cream with coke (Coca-Cola, not sure about other brands) is AMAZING, and normally I'm not even a fan of coke or cherry anything lol. </p>
We call them Spiders :3
You have Virgils Cream Soda...but have you tried with Virgils Root Beer? It is by far THE BEST root beer readily available...and all natural too.
