Blending two sweet treats together, the ice cream float is a marvel of confectionary creation that is at once both creamy and fizzy. But ever since we came of drinking age, root beer and Coke floats have lost some of their luster, taking a back seat to more intoxicating drinkable desserts like Piña Coladas and White Russians. But happy hour and the ice cream parlour don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
Nostalgic bartenders with a sweet tooth have taken the beloved float and boozed it up, creating the perfect blend of ice cream, spirtz and alcohol. So the next time you find yourself struggling to choose between your local dive and the ice cream shop, try one of these four soda-shop-meets-speakeasy dessert drinks. (Apologies in advance to your diet—you’re definitely going to want to drink them all.)
