Floating Away

Root Beer floats are so {summer} to me. Soft scoops of vanilla bean ice cream floating in root beer. Or Coke. Or even Diet Coke.

Jay and my dad had one at Disneyland and I knew I wanted to make them at home.

I like to serve them in the 8 ounce jelly jars ~ just the perfect amount. Who am I kidding, I could polish off one 3 times this size.

We’ve all had that punch at baby showers at one time or another with rainbow sherbet and 7-up, right? When I saw this post, it reminded me of individual servings of this fun, refreshing punch.

Put your glasses {or jars} in the freezer to get them nice and frosty.

Add a couple scoops of your favorite flavor of sherbet.

Or just vanilla.

Top off with 7-up, Sprite, Sierra Mist, Fresca or any other lemon lime soda.

If you’re using vanilla ice cream, you can use root beer, Coke, Dr. Pepper, cream soda or even Orange Crush…like a 50/50 bar!

Orange Crush would also be perfect with orange sherbet, don’t you think?

The possibilities are endless with these little floats.

Simple. Sweet. Summer.
