These are so much fun for the kids.

We love summer drinks and make a few new ones every summer. I have lots for you to try out, and hope you’ll have as much fun with them as we do. As much as you’ll love these Oceon Floats, I’d love for you to try this Shirley Temple Drink  It is so refreshing and so easy to make.

Another fun drink that I think you’ll like is our copy-cat recipe for a Sonic Cherry Limeade

Luckily, they are easy to make. The kids will most likely ask for seconds and thirds – if you let them.

What Sodas are Good for Floats?

  • You can literally use any soda for a float. Orange soda, Root Beer, Coke, Pepsi, Grape Soda, and Sprite are all great Ice Cream Float Sodas

How Do You Eat an Ice Cream Float?

  • Ice cream floats can be eaten with a straw and spoon combination or just by using a straw. If you use a spoon, you can scoop at the ice cream and also drink the liquid with your straw. The vanilla ice cream will dissolve in the soda, so just using a straw is fine too
