5 Fun & Tasty Boozy Ice Cream Float Recipes

If you’re like us, then you probably have childhood memories of making root beer floats with a beloved family member. As grown ups there’s an even better way to enjoy this tasty treat. Our ice cream float recipes feature unique flavors of craft sodas from regional brands such as Hosmer Mountain, Saranac and Boylan’s. Mixed with ice cream, a little booze, plus a few dashes of cocktail bitters to enhance the flavor, these alcoholic ice cream floats are as tasty as they are nostalgic.

Our flavor combinations take a delicious twist on traditional float recipes. Try a Root Beer Float with bourbon and bourbon barrel aged bitters or a classic Cream Soda Float with rum and vanilla ice cream. For chocolate lovers, we took Hosmer’s Chocolate Cream soda and poured it over coffee ice cream and whiskey for a boozy chocolate float that is to die for. If you like something a little more fruity, then check out our Raspberry Soda Float and Dirty Shirley Temple Float.
