Ice Cream Float Recipes

| Wednesday, April 13th, 2011 |

Would a root beer float by any other composition taste as sweet?

Weather is finally warming up in our part of the woods, and if we try really hard on some sunny afternoons, we can almost taste the lazy summer days in our not-too-distant future. Color us premature, but we at Ms. Fizz are ready to get the season of flip-flops and shorts started by experimenting with new takes on the traditional ice cream float.

According to history (now more commonly referred to as Wikipedia), the ice cream soda float was invented by a Robert Green in 1874.  According to Green’s own account, he was operating a soda fountain during the sesquicentennial celebration in Philadelphia , and wanted to create a concoction to attract customers away from another vendor who had a fancier, bigger soda fountain. After some experimenting, he combined ice cream and soda water.

And thus an iconic dessert was born in the U.S.! In honor of Green’s intrepid maneuver, we thought we’d explore some ice cream float ideas of our own.  Let us know if you try any of these 10 combinations or add your own twist, we could feature your whole recipe on Ms. Fizz!
