How’s your Summer so far? We’re moving and grooving around here enjoying some sun and fun. This weekend we’re breaking out the grill and having a few folks over and as usual I’m in charge of making the drinks. One of my favorite Spring/Summer time favorites is an adult version of a Summer time classic, the Coke float. It doesn’t get much simpler and satisfying then creamy cold ice cream, refreshing cola, and a little booze to add a buzz for you and a few friends. Plus, if you’re get together includes some little-one’s, it’s very easy to make both alcoholic and non alcoholic versions of it.

But wait… This isn’t just ANY Coke float. Let’s take a moment and acknowledge the fact that Coca Cola truly loves me, so much so that they created a brand new Coke flavor exclusively so I could take Coke floats to the next level. We’re talking about the newly released orange vanilla coke and we may or may not have been first in line at Target to buy a case last month. OK, so maybe they didn’t create this just for me, but they DEFINITELY had me in mind, sort of, or at least a little bit. So yes, we’re turning it up a notch this weekend and making boozy creamsicle coke floats. And although orange-vanilla maybe the missing link, RumChata is the secret weapon that really sends our Coke floats over the edge. Try one (or two or three) for yourself and let me know what you think.


RumChata Creamsicle Coke Float

  • 1 large scoop vanilla bean ice cream
  • 1.5 ouncesRumChata Liqueur
  • 5 ounces Orange Vanilla Coke
  • Whipped cream optional
  • Maraschino cherry optional

Instructions: TO AVOID CURDLING, it’s best to add a small amount of ice to the bottom of your glass first, followed by filling your glass 2/3rds with coke, then add 1-2 scoops of ice cream. Finally, float your RumChata on top and enjoy! Additionally add your toppings such as whipped cream and cherries. ENJOY!
