I rarely drink soda anymore, so I like to make it count when I do. That means diet is not an option. If I’m going to indulge, I don’t want it to have that fake sweetener taste. And since I’ve kicked my caffeine habit, dark cherry soda has become my go-to flavor of soda. That’s why I decided I needed to try this recipe for Dark Chocolate Bourbon Cherry Soda Floats. Well, that and the dark chocolate and bourbon. There’s nothing in this recipe for bourbon floats I don’t like. Let’s see if they all taste good together.
We love some spiked floats in this house. Well, I enjoy them… my husband is NUTS over them. Adores them. They are like one of his favorite things.
With only 3 ingredients, my shopping list for this recipe for bourbon floats was super short. I already had a bottle of bourbon for the chocolate chip cookies I just made. That left bottles of cherry soda and dark chocolate ice cream. I roamed the soda and frozen aisles and ended up with dark cherry soda and chocolate ice cream. And I was hoping that was at least close enough for this recipe. Fingers crossed!
Making these bourbon floats was as easy as I thought it would be. It only took me 2 minutes to scoop the chocolate ice cream, add shots of bourbon, and top it all off with a can drink of dark cherry soda. The recipe calls for 2 bottles of soda, so I’m thinking my glasses were too small or I added too much ice cream (like that’s possible!). Either way, I ended up with some of the best ice cream floats I’ve ever had!
