I enjoyed the Campari Peach Float so much last week that I decided to start experimenting with other alcoholic ice cream floats for the rest of the summer. It was a good call on my part because, so far, it’s been a real hot summer! Today’s “cocktail” is a variation of last week’s. I’ve exchanged the grapefruit for orange and the the peach ice cream for strawberry ice cream, and instead of an herbal liquor, like Campari, I went with pineapple vodka. Thus, this float is much sweater than last weeks. That’s okay though, its is the perfect accompaniment to 90+ degree nights.
Pineapple Vodka Strawberry Float
- 3 scoops strawberry ice cream
- 1 oz. pineapple vodka (New Amsterdam’s here)
- Orange soda
- fresh berries to garnish
Add three scoops of ice cream into a chilled glass. Pour vodka over ice cream. Fill glass with soda. Garnish with berries.
Pineapple vodka and orange soda don’t perfectly go together. But, the strawberry ice cream goes a long way in making the two place nice together. As I said, these floats are wonderful desserts for the end of the day or a nice companion for sharing a sunset on the back patio with.
