Old-Fashioned Floats: Brown Cows to Boston Coolers
Ice cream floats were one of our favorite desserts as a kid – and still are! Combining scoops of rich ice cream and “only on the weekend” soda, they seemed like the ultimate treat. Back then our tastes were simple, but check out all these different kinds we’ve discovered!
Wouldn’t it be fun to do an ice cream soda bar at a party and make several of these?
Root Beer Float – Root beer plus vanilla ice cream, this will always be our favorite
Brown Cow – We found conflicting versions of this drink. It’s either (or both!) root beer with chocolate ice cream or coca cola with vanilla ice cream, sometimes with a shot of chocolate syrup.
Purple Cow – Grape soda and vanilla ice cream
Pink Cow – Strawberry soda and vanilla ice cream
Boston Cooler – Ginger ale and vanilla ice cream
Snow White – Lemon-lime soda and vanilla ice cream
Black and white – Soda water, chocolate syrup, and vanilla ice cream
Hoboken – Soda water, pineapple syrup, and chocolate ice cream
