Happy 4th of July everyone!  I hope you all have fun celebrating today.  Here's a great little treat that would be super fun to make today.  It's nothing complicated; just a little twist on an old classic.  Make an ice cream float with blue soda, white ice cream, and red strawberry syrup.

Red, White, and Blue Floats

Vanilla ice cream
Mountain Dew Voltage soda (the blue one)
Strawberry or raspberry ice cream topping

Put ice cream in glass.  Fill up glass with blue Mountain Dew.  Drizzle strawberry syrup on top.  Serve immediately.

Makes as much as you want.

Not really a recipe, but I thought it was a cute idea for the Fourth, or any other patriotic holiday.  The blue color didn't show up as much as I was expecting, and I think it's because the ice cream was soft.  It kind of mixed together with the soda when I poured it in.  So make sure your ice cream is frozen really hard for this. It was still yummy though!

Special thanks to my dad who suggested using his vintage bicentennial glass for this festive float! "200 years of people feelin' free" Gotta love it!

Enjoy the holiday!

  1. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my
    old one! It's on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!
